Uncontrived Mindfulness: ending suffering through attention, curiosity and wisdom

From The Community Toolkit for Uncertain Times on Thu, 22 Jul, 2021 - 10:30

Led by Vajradevi

I’m running another online meditation retreat from Saturday 25th September to Friday 1st October 2021. The retreat is aimed at Order Members and Mitras and is offered on a Dana basis.

The emphasis will be on a relaxed, open, and attentive quality of ‘knowing’, receptive to whatever is happening within our experience. We will be cultivating mindfulness that is ‘uncontrived’ and natural and looking to bring ‘right view’ – a wisdom perspective - to each moment of awareness.

I’ll be drawing on...

No Toast, No Marmalade: Srimala in conversation with Maitreyabandhu

From London Buddhist Centre on Wed, 30 Dec, 2020 - 16:08

Srimala has played a crucial part in the life of the Triratna Buddhist Order – as Public and Private Preceptor, as College Member, and as beloved friend to so many. What many people may not know about her is that for years now she has been writing poems about her life, about living at Maes Gwyn in Wales, about her family and friends, about her partner Subhuti, and about hedgehogs, toast and the lack of marmalade.
