Keeping The Dragons In Mind

This is a blog based on notes for a short talk I gave here on the New Hampshire Seacoast to help launch the Urban Retreat. It was supposed to be about internationality in our spiritual community and the conditions that support it. I hope, in the end, it was.

I’ve been working a lot of late. It’s an amazing privilege - one I’d do well to recall at every opportunity - to get to travel around the Triratna world...

Myself, the dragon and St George - reflections on Ordination

By Bodhidasa on Tue, 2 Sep, 2014 - 07:32
What is it like to engage with ordination? This is a personal account of one person’s experience of attending the men’s ordination retreat at Guhyaloka in 2014.

It’s an honest and revealling exploration of the inner work done drawing on the work of Joseph Campbell and the myth of St George and the Dragon.
