Kalyana Centre

Kalyana Centre for Mindfulness is a small Meditation Centre located in the town of Dingle, on the Dingle Peninsula, in the south west of Ireland.


We offer a programme of classes and retreats each year, here in Dingle and elsewhere in Kerry. Retreats can accommodate up to 7 people in simple shared accommodation.  The teaching and practice of Mindfulness Meditation is open to anyone interested in exploring themselves and the deeper meaning of life, to anyone who wants to transform suffering and develop peace of mind.

Eva offers silent retreats of different lengths. Some retreats are supported by mindful movements based on Kum Nye and some retreats are combined with Voice Awareness to help focus the mind and shift the energies of the body. Loving kindness and compassion practice is also taught in different retreats.

Classes are offered throughout Kerry, in Dingle, Tralee, Milltown, and other locations. Find the schedule for 'Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction' classes, the 'Awakening Joy' course as well as Introductions to mindfulness practice.

We regret that we are not in a position to offer facilities for personal retreats or additional group events outside our advertised schedule. 

In order to practice Mindfulness Meditation it is not necessary to define yourself in a religious belief. Anybody, regardless of age, gender and religious affiliation is welcome to practice and will greatly benefit from it.
