How insight can give us access to an inexhaustible form of will, excerpt from Vimalamoksha's talk

Mon, 15 Jun, 2020 - 19:34

The following is excerpted from Vimalamoksha’s talk, For the Earth: The Art of Skilful Choices (June 13)

When the Buddha sat under the Bodhi tree and saw all of his past lives, he witnessed an unimaginable expanse of being, he came into relationship to deep time and the oceans of the details of lived experience were not lost. This sublime doorway is something that we can all access by pushing the envelope of our imagination and finding our own relationship to deep...

Nature-based practice @ wildflower meadows

Tue, 2 Jun, 2020 - 17:39

As a botanist, I relish the gradual witnessing of plants breaking dormancy, and progressing from green shoots to flowering and onwards to berries once pollinated.
