By libbydavy on Tue, 6 Aug, 2013 - 11:40We are a full village now for 2013! Bookings Closed.

Infact we seem to book out every year, just by word of mouth, and have had to start limiting numbers. Please book early next year to make sure you can come.

Part of creating this online space is to help us germinate other family friendly events within the Triratna movement. Anyone that has any energy at all to help make that happen, can find a way to get...

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?

A fascinating look at aspects of...

A Send-off for Satyajit and Mumukshu

By Centre Team on Thu, 11 Jul, 2013 - 13:54This just in from the Buddhafield Team as the Festival gets underway…

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...

Late Fragment by Raymond Carver
And did you get what
you wanted from this life, even so?
I did.
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself
beloved on the earth.
Led by Paramananda, Padmadasi and Maitridevi
Easterbrook, near Yeoford, Devon, Friday 6 September-Friday 4 October

Our relationship with the modern world is highly complex but, at heart, our feeling of ease in the world is dependent on being present, open and fully ourselves, with simplicity...

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...
