ABOUT BRUNO

Bruno is a Meditation Instructor, Dharma Educator, and Creative Artist.

He directed the short movie ZEN KISS [A silent study of being gay and buddhist] and has recently authored a book of dharma contemplations entitled BUDDHA'S FAVOURITE WORDS.

Bruno was born in 1965 in Dublin, Ireland where he later trained as a Philosophical Theologian at Trinity College. While still working as an educator in that area, Bruno encountered the heart of the Buddha’s teachings when he met Sogyal Rinpoche, which quickly led to also meeting Ringu Tulku Rinpoche and Thich Nhat Hanh.

Since then, Bruno has been studying and practising the Way of the Buddha with these masters, both in Ireland and in Asia. 

He has taught meditation and presented the Buddha’s teachings in many Dharma centres, including Rigpa Dublin where he was Managing Director for some years, and in Dublin's main prison, hospice, and various NGOs that care in the community. 

Bruno was the Founding Director of Buddhist Network Ireland and represented Irish Buddhists on the Inter-Religious Council of Ireland.

Nowadays, as well as teaching Meditation and Applied Mindfulness courses, Bruno is very much committed to guest-lecturing on Buddhism in Colleges and Universities.

He is currently founding several new projects including Big Buddha Day, Buddhist Film Festival, Lotus Temple, and Open Space.
