Demain/ Tomorrow - the film - a fantastic resource for BAM

Posted by Bec Remigio to Buddhist Action Month 2017 on Sun, 19 Mar, 2017 - 20:59

I have just seen the film ‘Demain/ Tomorrow’ - it is amazing, and deeply inspiring. I encourage all aspiring bodhisattvas to find a way to view it (there is a DVD available and it is still showing in some cinemas). We could arrange screenings at our local Buddhist centres.  It is an incredible resource for BAM and for our precious Sangha. Follow the link

Here is the blurb ‘Showing solutions, telling a feel-good story… this may be the best...

Ah thanks so much for posting about this. I am really keen to try and arrange a screening at Bristol Buddhist Centre during BAM. Has anyone contacted the distributors yet to see how to go about doing this? Perhaps we could try and do this collectively rather than each centre contacting them separately?

It would be fantastic to show this Sarah. Thanks Bec for posting

Hi all again,

Just to say I have e-mailed the distributors on behalf of Triratna generally about showing the film in our centres, and will post again when I hear anything back from them.

Hi again,

I’ve been doing a bit more research about how to show the film. The Transition Network have come to an agreement with the distributors to co-ordinate the screening of the film in the UK and you can find out on their website here how to go about this

https://transitionnetwork.org/news-and-blog/tomorrow-demain-available-la…

It looks to me like doing it through Transition will be simpler than trying to contact the distributors directly. There is a £100 fee for a one off screening of the event, but I feel getting donations to cover the cost should be possible. The website has a useful guide on how to go about organizing a successful screening, including opening it out to the local community and having a space after the film for people to discuss their responses. I’ve started making plans to show it at Bristol Buddhist CEetre - be great to hear if any other centres are planing to screen it!

A new podcast from some members of the Adhisthana Kula as they come to the end of a 10-day meeting of the College. 

A great little summary of some of the more general issues discussed, including those arising from historical controversies in Triratna (formerly the FWBO). We get a little taster of other conversations to come - with news of new media, and of prospective reconciliation possibilities within the wider community.

What emerges is a picture of the College at a...

This includes spending some time with and  achieving a comfortable and supportive posture - I have attached a short guide (thanks to Vajramati from the New York Triratna Centre) and here is also a link to ...

Buddhist Voices From Mexico - Aurea, Pablo & Alejandra

Posted by Candradasa to Buddhist Centre Features on Fri, 10 Mar, 2017 - 18:33

First in a series of occasional episodes featuring Triratna voices from Mexico. Here we meet the wonderful Aurea and her family in Mexico City and hear their story of what it’s like to be a Buddhist (or have a Buddhist in your life) in a country where that’s still fairly unusual.  

An inspiring, warm conversation that shows the tremendous difference love and support from friends and family can make to anyone practising Buddhism.

Buddhist Action Month Handbook 2016 version

Posted by Mokshini to Buddhist Action Month 2017 on Thu, 2 Mar, 2017 - 13:24

The plan is to update this Handbook somewhat for 2017, but I am posting the 2016 version here here as it is still a useful resource and the suggestions for actions won’t change that much. 

I am hoping to be able to make the 2017 version available by the end of March 2017
