Turning Towards Uncertain Times (The Dharma Toolkit Daily, Episode 1)On Sat, 21 March, 2020 - 00:51
Welcome to The Dharma Toolkit Daily, our new podcast from The Buddhist Centre to keep you company through the weeks or months ahead in these extraordinary coronavirus times.
We’ll be with you every week day with a diverse range of guests to renew your sense of a wider Dharma community standing with you. What better way to stay connected than to hear the voices of friends and strangers who understand something of what you may be going through in your particular lockdown situation?
In our pilot episode, you’ll hear tales and impressions from Scotland, Ireland, England, Mexico and the U.S.A.
- The strangeness of physical loneliness alongside too many Zoom calls
- the positive effect on the natural world of less human presence
- the surprising normalcy of meditating online
- the deep need for community, beyond the boundaries of language itself
- the collective versus the individual
- the consequences of a cancelled long-term retreat
- and, of course, the great reality of interconnectedness.
Join us for 30 minutes of great conversation!
