Maitrisara On The Buddhafield Dharma Parlour

By Candradasa on Tue, 9 Jul, 2013 - 15:11
A fun conversation with Maitrisara, program organizer for the much-loved Dharma Parlour space at the annual Buddhafield Festival, which is in some ways most expressive of the heart of the Buddhafield community itself.

At the Dharma Parlour you can hear talks and take part in (at least 37!) dedicated Dharma workshops aimed at blending the ancient wisdom of the Buddha with peculiarly modern, environmental concerns about how we live. As well as debates, and introductions...

By Centre Team on Sun, 7 Jul, 2013 - 19:20

See the full line-up below for the live music programme or over on the main Buddhafield website.

Today’s little taster features The Turbans, who’ll be playing traditional folk music from Egypt, Yemen, Turkey, Israel, Ireland, all the way...

Buddhafield eBooks - Paramananda - On Retreat with Buddhafield

By Candradasa on Fri, 24 May, 2013 - 16:31As we mentioned yesterday, while we wait for some voices from the Buddhafield Green Earth Awakening Camp to filter through from the hills we’ll keep posting some talks that give a good sense of the distinct approach Buddhafield takes to practice. Here’s another of Lokabandhu’s excellent mini-eBooks featuring Paramananda on retreat at Buddhafield.

Paramananda is an excellent guide to meditation and to retreat. Get his books here.

By Candradasa on Thu, 23 May, 2013 - 19:27Well, as expected, the internet gods were (quite properly!) no match for the secret realm where Buddhafield’s Green Earth Awakening Camp is gathering for the weekend Dharma festivities. N.B. It’s not too late to join them!

So we’ll have to wait till everyone returns to post (we hope!) some of the sights and sounds of this new event in the Triratna calendar…

In the meantime, we’ll continue to give you a little bit of...

Kamalashila is the President of Buddhafield, a pioneering project which in the last twenty years has offered a radical revisiting of the Buddha’s life and practice for modern times, rooting their vision of that firmly in the elements out of doors.

Here he talks about his own history with Buddhafield since the mid ’90s, evoking the spirit of its great experiment and the people who have been undertaking it together as an extended community. He also...

Buddhafield Launch Green Earth Awakening - This Weekend!

By lokabandhu on Wed, 22 May, 2013 - 19:03
Today on Buddhafield Week we want to start focussing on the community and the land. Coming up over the next few days we have a new interview with Kamalashila as President, and we’re hoping to have some interviews and reports from the field too. But as you’ll hear the mobile coverage there is very poor indeed, so some of that might not come in till next week. In which case, it may well turn into a Buddhafield Two...
