Green Earth Awakening

By Munisha on Mon, 4 Dec, 2017 - 13:19

In the latest NewsByte, Clear Vision looks back at Buddhafield’s Green Earth Awakening festival, held 20th-24th September this year, when Buddhists of several traditions came together with non-Buddhists and activists and campaigners for a few days’ camping in the Blackdown Hills in Devon, UK.

As Buddhafield say on their website, “The Green Earth Awakening is a convergence of engaged Buddhism, community living, land skills, and creative responses [leading] towards social resilience.”

advance notice to those in UK! Green Earth Awakening Sept 2018

By mokshini on Sat, 30 Sep, 2017 - 10:37

I have just recently come back from Buddhafield’s Green Earth Awakening and am flagging it up for the UK people amongst us,  with a suggestion to put it in your diary for 2018! 

I had SUCH a good time and thought it was such an excellent event - weaving Buddhafield magic, being outdoors in nature, coming together on the themes of nature, environment, social justice, Buddhist practice and what that all means for us, and a real sense of the...

Paganism and the Dharma

By mokshini on Wed, 26 Jul, 2017 - 12:24

This fabulously interesting workshop aims to explore the common ground between paganism and the Dharma. Ratnadeva writes - 

“We will look at extracts from Bhante’s writings, in which he describes possible benefits for Western Buddhism of engaging with paganism. More specifically we will look at animism as a common mythical context. I will describe how I have been exploring these complementarities within the context of team-based-right-livlihood with Buddhafield. There will be time for a (hopefully!) open-minded and open-hearted discussion, during which we...

Dharma Drama - with Liz Armour

By mokshini on Wed, 14 Jun, 2017 - 12:57

One of my personal highlights of past International Gatherings is the daily dharma drama; the time of storytelling and enactment by children and adults alike in the evening before the puja: All are welcome to take part!

This year we are again lucky enough to have the multi-talented musician and children’s play worker Liz Armour at the International gathering. Everyone is invited,   young and old alike, to take part in the afternoon dharma drama session. We’ll first listen to...

Mindful Communication with Jayaraja

By mokshini on Wed, 14 Jun, 2017 - 12:33

Jayaraja, chair of Buddhafield, is offering an experiential workshop on this year’s International Gathering. It will be about sharing communication skills, on how to speak from the heart, with honesty and with compassion. How to listen and understand the inner world of another to build connection and trust. He will be drawing from the work of Marshall Rosenberg, (NVC), Dan Siegel (Interpersonal Neurobiology), and the Buddha’s teaching on skilful speech.

The Buddhafield season begins in April, and the spring weather is drawing us closer to nature and to the land, calling us to a deeper experience of ourselves and others, supported by the earth. 

Highlights of the season include our Total Immersion Retreat - a silent meditation retreat led by experienced meditators Kamalashila and Vajradevi, on our beautiful Broadhembury land in Devon. Beginning on 6th May, the retreat runs for a...

The Secret Life of Buddhafield: Practical Reflections on Embracing Simplicity, by Sarah Boak

By Aryanisha on Tue, 14 Mar, 2017 - 13:04

Buddhafield Administrator, Sarah Boak, reflects on the 2017 theme of ‘Embracing Simplicity’.

Taken from Buddhafield’s blog - regularly updated with great pieces from the team.

“For me, simplicity is about making space to fully encounter the richness of life. To be able to be open to my experience, each day, with a sense of curiosity and wonder. I want to live life with purpose and intention, rather than letting time go by with no real sense of where I’m going or what I want...

Austria calling Triratna!

Austria calling Triratna!

By Munisha on Fri, 13 Jan, 2017 - 15:49

Triratna is now so large, it can be hard to remember that there are still many countries without any Triratna activities at all, even in Europe. In Vienna last September I got together with Thomas and Carina Rotter, Austrian Buddhists longing for someone to start Triratna activities there.

Triratna may well be one of the Buddhist movements making greatest use of online communications and, as you’ll see, they’ve certainly made determined use of it!

Thomas writes: “I found Triratna at...
