These Are The Moments (The Dharma Toolkit Podcast, Episode 32)

From The Community Toolkit for Uncertain Times on Fri, 11 Sep, 2020 - 21:36

Hello again! We’re back for a new season of The Dharma Toolkit podcast. We’ve had a wee break, passed through fleeting summer, and are turning towards the first fall/autumn of these strange, pandemic times ready to renew our own sense of connection through community with you. Welcome aboard!

We begin again by following up and extending our previous mini-series ‘The Many Jewels: Buddhism, Writing and the Arts’ about the place of poetry and art in forming a response...

Meditating in the Mandala (The Dharma Toolkit, Episode 29)

From The Community Toolkit for Uncertain Times on Sat, 6 Jun, 2020 - 21:06

To mark our latest Home Retreat, led by Tejananda, an excellent conversation and primer on meditation from a body-focussed perspective. 

Tejananda’s key image is of the dynamic mandala. Dharma practice is itself dynamic and transformative. And the transformation lies in gradually discovering how both we and the world are not at all what we originally supposed! Seeing this, we can begin to uproot the causes of suffering in our own experience.

This approach to practice is centred on the living energy of...

For Nothing Is Fixed - Getting Real with Viveka and Paramananda, Episode 1

From The Community Toolkit for Uncertain Times on Tue, 2 Jun, 2020 - 02:16

For Nothing Is Fixed

For nothing is fixed,
forever, forever, forever,
it is not fixed;
the earth is always shifting,
the light is always changing,
the sea does not cease to grind down rock.
Generations do not cease to be born,
and we are responsible to them
because we are the only witnesses they have.
The sea rises, the light fails,
lovers cling to each other,
and children cling to us.

For the Earth - BAM! 2020 (The Dharma Toolkit, Episode 28)

From The Community Toolkit for Uncertain Times on Fri, 29 May, 2020 - 12:59

This year’s Buddhist Action Month (BAM!) - happening around the world throughout June - is about to kick off. The theme is “For the Earth” - and here on the Dharma Toolkit we’ll be looking at the intersection between urgent human issues like climate change, economic inequality and social justice. 

The poetic version of this, rooted in personal and community practice, is that we have a perfect opportunity to speak up for the many beings...

The River Under the River (The Dharma Toolkit, Episode 27)

From The Community Toolkit for Uncertain Times on Tue, 26 May, 2020 - 22:27

“Deserving a place in a realm where miracles happen”

Let’s start with this image: there’s a river under the river. Then follow it via the works of William Stafford and the creative lives of members of the Wolf at the Door group: poets and writers exploring the interplay of modes of attention in their chosen art forms, mediated by the practice of Buddhism.

The wolf is there too. Alive and real and, sometimes, scary. But this...

Turning Arrows Into Flowers (The Dharma Toolkit Podcast, Episode 26)

From The Community Toolkit for Uncertain Times on Thu, 14 May, 2020 - 16:17

To mark the start of our Home Retreat on the theme of turning towards difficulties and moving through them well, a great, practical conversation with Yashobodhi about the meditative, reflective work of the Seven-Point Mind Training tradition in Buddhism. 

A mythic image to sum up and symbolize this is that of the Buddha on the cusp of his Enlightenment. He is sitting still at the point when Mara attacks him with all the weapons he can muster. But, as the story...

Ironic Points of Light (The Dharma Toolkit Daily, Episode 25)

From The Community Toolkit for Uncertain Times on Sat, 9 May, 2020 - 00:21

Shimmering images, and no less shimmering experiences. Today’s episode begins a series on beauty, poetry, myth, art and symbol as a response to crisis.

Taking our cue from W.H. Auden’s poem, September 1st, 1939, and his recognition of the need to “love one another or die”, we ask how, in the midst of fear – even of death – we can exercise our agency as human beings.

Poetry leads the way in and out of the questioning. Joining Auden in the...
