‘Jampa’ and ‘Ling’ are Tibetan words meaning ‘place of loving kindness’. The volunteers at Jampa Ling and Rinpoche’s students try to live up to this name by providing a place of tranquility, calm and understanding. One’s life may not always fit together well, and peace and tranquility and a warm welcome can sometimes help.
EVENTS TAKE PLACE ALL OVER THE SUMMER MONTHS……please visit Jampa Ling Tibetan Buddhist Centre for the full listing of events
Wandering through the Weeds…Jampa Ling Tibetan Buddhist Centre, Bawnboy, Co Cavan.
Saturday 21st April 10am -4.30pm. This one day workshop is in two sections
In the morning Judith will lead the group around any available – and relatively unkempt – garden, lane, field, or park. As plants are found, she discusses the culinary, domestic and medicinal uses to which each plant, (predominantly wild ones), is put. Worksheets are provided for notes. In the afternoon, Judith does the ‘cookery demonstration’, during which she shows the methods for making infusions, decoctions, compresses, poultices, tinctures, macerated oils and ointments. She gives clear information on terminology and recipes, (or formulas). There is a further sheet of notes that complements the afternoon’s work. Judith keeps the day informal and encourages relevant questions and comments about our herbal heritage. Participants are asked to bring weathproof clothing, including boots and note-books and pens, especially for the afternoon.
Please bring vegetarian lunch to share …Workshop costs …€45 and must be booked in advance
