Passaddhi is a small meditation centre outside Adrigole on the Beara Peninsula in the southwest of Ireland. Passaddhi overlooks Bantry Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, and is situated on a quiet hillside between Hungry Hill and the Sugarloaf Mountain. In 1996 Marjó Oosterhoff and her husband built it as their family home, and since 1999 meditation retreats take place at the house. Passaddhi (meaning ‘peace and tranquillity’) is the perfect environment to experience the calm, clarity and contentment meditation practice can bring.
Passaddhi seeks to make the teachings of the Buddha, and in particular the meditation practices of vipassana (mindfulness or insight), and metta (loving-kindness) available to as many people as possible, whether they are Buddhist or not.
Marjó Oosterhoff is the resident teacher and manager at Passaddhi. She has practised meditation (both vipassana and metta) for many years, in monasteries and meditation centres in Burma and Thailand, as well as in Buddhist retreat centres in the West. Her Thai and Burmese teachers authorised her to teach vipassana/mindfulness and metta/loving-kindness retreats.
