Triratna Jobs, Volunteering and Communities
Here’s a last minute chance to take advantage of a unique opportunity at New View Residential, the ethical letting agency in Cambridge, who are looking for a new team member.
New View is one of the newest and most distinctive right livelihood projects currently operating within Triratna, has a long and fascinating history. They are a new voice in the thriving Buddhist community of Cambridge.
So how did it come to be, and what makes them so unique?
Well, the story is worth revisiting. It began in 1980 when a market stall was set up as a right livelihood experiment, which grew so much it became the legendary, multi-million pound retail and wholesale phenomenon that was ‘Windhorse : Evolution’. The success of these shops, and the wholesale side of the business, supported the birth and growth of many inner city Buddhist Centres, and contributed to several charities until it finally closed its doors in 2015.
When Evolution : Windhorse closed, Windhorse Trust still owned some properties, and invested in more with money that was left over, and it’s this property portfolio is now in the capable hands of New View Residential. This means that New View are the custodians of the 30 year Evolution legacy that grew from nothing but a great idea.
Windhorse Trust are also one of FutureDharma Fund’s most generous supporters. So this means that everyone who ever had any involvement in Windhorse : Evolution, is still spreading the Dharma to this day through FutureDharma projects. From helping new Triratna groups to get started, to supporting innovative Triratna projects, FutureDharma supporters are seeding and spreading Sanghas worldwide.
The lucky person who takes on the new role at New View, will therefore also become a part of this wonderful legacy. Does this sound like it could be you?
