Come and join Buddhafield for our big winter event! A spacious, month-long journey through the Six Elements of earth, water, fire, air, space and consciousness. We will meet them in our daily lives, wherever we find ourselves. You can dip in as much or as little as you’d like.
There’s a wonderful programme of meditation; bodywork; dharma and other talks; workshops, poetry, music and dance. Regular emails to participants and a Facebook Event page.
What if our children are seen as aspects of our mind – this moment greed, this moment hatred. The Buddha advises us to ‘be with’ whatever arises, just allowing and then seeing what happens. Amaragita takes a look at Buddhist practice in the light of parenting.
Dhiramati’s pujas to the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas are a Buddhafield favourite - and there’s a great new edition just out of his Collected Pujas! Even better, today ONLY (30/11) Lulu are offering 30% off the price. You can order the book here and use code: BFCM30 at the checkout. Best wishes, Lokabandhu
There’s a host of dharma talks, workshops and meditations on offer at this event, with some wonderful contributors from different countries and traditions, listed below. Full details of whole programme are here:

Here Karunadhi introduces us to the Red Rite of Fascination. Friendship emerges from love for our friends, but also can evoke strong attachment. Communication and the samgrahavastu (means of unification) of loving speech are the antidote for grasping and projection.
Vajratara introduces the theme of spiritual friendship or kalyana mitrata. What is spiritual friendship? How is it distinguished from ordinary friendship? How can we make friends? What is the difference between vertical and horizontal friendship? Using stories, personal anecdotes and images she introduces the overall theme to prepare for more talks in this series, which focusses on the tantric rites and friendship.
