Dazzled by Daylight is the true story of how its half-blind author built his childhood dream on a remote clifftop in the south-west of Ireland. Told with irreverent humour, it is the account of a battle with convention and the elements to create a spiritual home for people of all religions and none. From his rebellious youth, Peter takes us on a trip through the sixties to a Tibetan monastery in the Scottish Borders. He befriends the first lamas to reach the West, and embarks on his mission to establish a centre for meditation as a refuge from the twenty-first-century cycle of competitive consumption. In a spectacular location on the Beara Peninsula in West Cork, he and his wife find a derelict farm without electricity or water, accessible only by horse and cart. With the confidence of amateurs, and equipped only with mindfulness and gelignite, they transform a wind-blasted cluster of ruins into a wooded retreat village, creating the charity that is Dzogchen Beara today.

About the Author:

Peter Cornish attended an English boarding school from the age of seven. He dropped out of education to pursue his interest in painting, which culminated in an exhibition of his work in Knightsbridge, London, in 1969. That same year, with deteriorating eyesight, he gave up painting and moved to Samye Ling, in Scotland, to study Buddhism with Chogyam Trungpa. Peter moved to Ireland in 1974, founded the Dzogchen Beara meditation and retreat centre and invited Sogyal Rinpoche to be its spiritual director. Having studied under various masters, Peter now spends much of his time in retreat.
