Back to the Future: A Review of 2019

By Centre Team on Tue, 31 Dec, 2019 - 10:00

2019 was both a year of looking back - at our collective history, our shared values and vision - and looking forward at the kind of society we want to live in, the kind of world we want to co-create.

The year saw Triratna in that crucial space - following the death of our community’s founder, Urgyen Sangharakshita, on 30th October 2018. There was time to rejoice in our legacy, but also reflect on the more difficult aspects of our...

Podcast: Community - With Your Own Front Door

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 27 May, 2019 - 15:26

So it’s community - but with our own front door

The Suvana (meaning ‘happy realm’) project aims to develop Buddhist co-housing in Cambridge, UK. It will be newly built, sustainable, low carbon footprint development, with the community inspired by Buddhist values.  

Here’s a conversation with Tejasvini and Jeremy Peters, both involved in the project, discussing co-housing as a response to the housing crisis, their plans for sustainable features, affordability, Buddhist almhouses and more.

A beautiful shrine room and more opportunities to meditate, yoga, a library and bookstore,...

Although they have yet to find a development site, the group of Order Members and Mitras who are involved in the Suvana cohousing...
