If your website is showing to some as 'unsafe'...

If your website is showing to some as 'unsafe'...

Thu, 8 Oct, 2020 - 09:53

This from Dhammamegha:

We have had some trouble at Windhorse Publications earlier this year where access to the site was blocked for potential users. It turned out that there was a Vodafone algorithm that was wrongly applied to us. This applied to both Vodafone contracts and broadband supplied by them, including by third parties. Vodaphone’s algorithm made the judgement that the site contained indecent or inappropriate material. 

Because I’m a Vodafone user, I know that there are other Triratna sites that have had similar...

How Sheffield and Brixton Centres are doing hybrid classes

Wed, 16 Sep, 2020 - 12:47

Most of this is on the more complex end of what’s possible but hopefully it will interest some situations.

The video is a little over 18 minutes long and has:

Aryadasa and Vicki from Sheffield talking about the why and how they went about it

7:00 - Vicki shows us the actual equipment they use and how it’s set up

14:35 - Aryadasa describes a simpler, cheaper option

How to Engage your Sangha with Home Retreats

Mon, 8 Jun, 2020 - 15:20

As part of The Buddhist Centre Online’s response to the pandemic, they have been offering Home Retreats, and these continue each month.

Whilst our Centres are closed or restricted, these are an excellent way of giving your Sangha something substantial yet flexible to engage with, and are a whole lot less work than doing it all using your local team! In fact the support you need to offer could be quite minimal - some email or WhatsApp, a discussion group or two.
