It's worth checking out the courses conducted at www.dzogchenbeara.org
it's in South West Cork. I went to see Ringu Tulku Rinpoche give a three day talk on Fear and Anger last year. He is a Tibetan Buddhist Master of the Kagyu order. He is coming again in May, I hope, as his father passed away recently, and that may affect his plans. I found the teaching very easy, very open. I feel no scepticism towards it at all. The details of his talk this year has not been confirmed, but, it will more than likely be accesible(intellectually) to all.
It's also a great place to meditate, and take time out for yourself. More details on http://www.dzogchenbeara.org/
