Awareness is Revolutionary: Talking about Race and Buddhism

By akasajoti on Wed, 24 Jun, 2020 - 14:27

On 25 June, from 19.00-21.00 (UK), Subhuti will be in conversation with Suryagupta, the Chair of the London Buddhist Centre, on the topic of race, caste and Buddhism. They will explore the themes personally, arriving at a distinctively Dharmic approach to race and Buddhism, with time for you to ask questions via the chat facility on their YouTube Livestream. All are invited to join the LBC Sangha for what promises to be a memorable and significant evening.

Welcome - Meditating in the Mandala home retreat

By Sadayasihi on Fri, 12 Jun, 2020 - 10:40

What is a mandala? Symbolically, it’s a sacred circle that, if you enter and approach its centre, brings you towards Enlightenment or full Awakening. This week, during our latest home retreat, we will be meditating in the mandala, led by Tejananda, an Order member with over 25 years of teaching practice, as we deepen into our experience and learn to simply be.

Tejananda’s approach is rooted in Triratna’s System of Practice - integration, positive emotion, spiritual death, spiritual rebirth...

Maitreyabandhu - Poetry and Receptivity

By Candradasa on Tue, 24 Nov, 2015 - 18:47

It’s not too late to join the Urban Retreat! 

A lovely short talk by Maitreyabandhu, illuminating why poetry is itself an act of receptivity and requires that of us as readers and, in the context of an Urban Retreat, Buddhist practitioners. Taking as his source Kay Ryan’s poem ‘The Niagara River’ we get a simple but encouraging close reading of how poetry can help us slow down, take things in, and really...

"Touching the Body, Touching Enlightenment" - a talk by Shraddhadhi

"Touching the Body, Touching Enlightenment" - a talk by Shraddhadhi

By Maitrisingha on Fri, 15 May, 2015 - 14:35

In this inspiring talk, Shraddhadhi, a Rosen-therapist and physio, shares her own journey of re-embodiment. Weaving in stories of Mara’s attack on the Buddha, she explains why a deepening awareness of the body is essential to Dharma practice, and how wisdom is found by dropping our habitual negative storylines and letting go into the deeper energies of the body.

A talk given at the Norwich Sangha’s Buddha Weekend camping retreat, May 2015.
