The New Berlin Women's Community / Die neue Berliner Frauen-WG

By Sadayasihi on Tue, 6 Oct, 2020 - 09:14

In February this year, six women (Bianca, Mokshini, Sanghadarsini, Simharava, Viryapadma and Viryadhi) moved into a brand-new flat in a housing cooperative in the North-East of Berlin – just in time before lockdown. Together they have embarked on a journey to create the first ever women’s community in Berlin.

In this short video, made by Simharava, some of its members share the joys and challenges of the first six months.

This Dharmabyte podcast is called Living Sangha from Abhayanandi, in an excerpt from a talk of the same name.

Dhammadinna’s reflections on her many years of living in Triratna communities

By Saccanama on Thu, 2 Feb, 2017 - 16:14

I live in Samayakula community, along with eleven other women, in two adjoining houses, near the London Buddhist Centre.  We have not long come back together after the mid-winter/new year break.  Some of us have been on the LBC winter retreats and returned with many stories to tell. Others have been to visit family, or stayed at home in the community.  On our first community evening of the New Year we launched our ‘rainy season light’ for the month...
