Kamalashila's Quarterly No.3 - On Gonzo Psychogeography And New Beginnings

By Candradasa on Sat, 18 Apr, 2015 - 18:37

Another excellent conversation with Kamalashila in our occasional series from West London, where we celebrate the opening of their incredibly impressive new Buddhist Centre. But first we touch on all things liminal in our ongoing exchanges about landscape - particularly, in this case, the “gonzo psychogeography” of London and its subterranean rivers. 

We also hear about new beginnings in the shape of a Welsh contemplative community project, and Buddhafield as it re-emerges from some years...

Amaragita On The Buddhafield Family Friendly Retreat

By Candradasa on Thu, 11 Jul, 2013 - 14:42
A really great conversation with Amaragita, one of the pioneers of Buddhafield retreats that are family friendly, a radical re-imagining of community retreat that has been one of Buddhafield’s most successful projects for 14 years.

How do you maintain a deep practice of the Dharma when you have a family? How can householders bring the Buddha’s teachings to bear on their lives and also feed their own experience into the wider sangha?

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...

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.
