#EthicalChristmas: Wildmind - The Accidental Publisher

Posted by bodhipaksa to Buddhist Centre Features on Sat, 6 Dec, 2014 - 15:49Wildmind stumbled into publishing back in 2002, and has now brought out eight guided meditation CDs, with plans to publish a number of books.

Bodhipaksa used the services of a local recording studio in order to record the mindfulness of breathing, development of lovingkindness, and walking meditation practices...

#EthicalChristmas: Priyananda On The People Behind Windhorse Books

Posted by Centre Team to Buddhist Centre Features on Sun, 23 Nov, 2014 - 15:31Windhorse Publications originated as the main publisher of Sangharakshita, the founder of the Triratna Order. Do you still publish books by Sangharakshita or is your focus now on publishing books by other authors?

#EthicalChristmas: The Ethics Of Publishing In A Digital Age

Posted by Centre Team to Buddhist Centre Features on Sat, 22 Nov, 2014 - 13:44The publishing industry is in the process of going through a huge, seismic change. Whereas ten years ago we were buying all of our books from our local bookshop, today we’re more likely to purchase them online, in eBook as well as print format. Publishers are having to adapt to these changing conditions in order to survive. In addition, some companies are adopting dubious methods to make up for decreased profit margins – the recent tax avoidance schemes of certain...

Our First Original eBook: A Buddhist Cancer Memoir by Suvarnaprabha (Suvanna Cullen)

Posted by Candradasa to Buddhist Centre Features on Fri, 17 Oct, 2014 - 19:16Just over a year ago, our friend Suvarnaprabha passed away in the company of her friends from the San Francisco Buddhist Center. Some readers may recall our coverage of Suvarnaprabha’s last few months in which she generously shared much of her process of dying as a way to encourage people to meet their own mortality in the light of the Dharma.

Suvarnaprabha kept a great blog to document the ups and downs of...
