Great! But it can’t be 9.30 am in the UK and 10 am in Europe… So is it 9/10 am or 9.30/10.30 am? Thanks!

Oops, thanks! Corrected now. x

I watched the video and a resource for sharing good practice was mentioned. Where is that?

Can I be visible about what I have been doing? Over the last two plus months I have taught over 60 hours of classes on Facebook Live, in morning sessions commencing at 7.30 UK time.

https://www.facebook.com/mahabodhi.burton.33

In these sessions I have managed to communicate the vast proportion of my thinking on the Dharma developed over sixteen years of working on my book ‘Mindfulness: the undiscovered foundations,’ including topics such as ‘Buddhism and Science’ and ‘Secular Mindfulness.’ With help from Sangharadhara this work is now uploaded to YouTube in seven series. Please check out and subscribe to my channel ‘Compassionate response to Covid-19 with Mahabodhi’ if you wish to view this work:

Hi Vajrashura

It would be really helpful to know the duration of the session  on Saturday evening.  Many thanks for making it available. Bw Atapini

Hi Atapini.

Yes, I should have included it in the letter. I’ve just clarified that with Ratnaguna - it’ll be 1.5 hours long.

I really enjoyed being part of this seminar - learning by doing.

Thank you, Danadasa, Ratnaguna and Vajrashura, for modelling efficient and enjoyable online Dharma teaching practices.

I wonder if we can share this resource with other Order Member who facilitate online but we’re unable to be there.

Is there/would you be willing to share a recording of the session?

Thanks,

Amitaśūrī
