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!

Check out the Dharma Toolkit space for details of all we have on offer to help you make it through the weirdness and stay inspired.

Come meditate with us any week day!

Fabulous, thanks Candradasa, Sadayasihi, Sanghadara and Parami - I just listned to the first podcast.

More help with puja over zoom would be great, the best I have come up with is doing it in call and response with everybody but the leader and one other person muted - it kind of worked ok,

Stay well, Love Saradarshini
