How to Collaborate Around the World (The Buddhist Centre Podcast, Episode 435)On Sat, 31 December, 2022 - 20:21
The Triratna International Council has been a going concern for 11+ years–but in many ways it’s just getting started. Meeting again in person for the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic, it’s undergoing something of a renaissance; renewing itself through the work of Buddhists from around the world, all united in their heart wish to work together to help exemplify a path of everyday practice for a planet that really needs a humane path out of suffering.
We meet friends from India, Latin America, Oceania, Europe and the UK–as well as the hard-working team who help pull such an ambitious endeavor together every couple of years; convening interim gatherings at regional and national level to make sure we get the best out of this great assembly. We hear why it all matters–what relevance such meetings have for our own community and for anyone interested in genuinely consensual ways to approach questions of leadership, strategy and direction. Perhaps most importantly of all, we hear evoked what it means to share a common interest and work with each other based on something other than power.
