The Unexpected Intimacy of Online (The Dharma Toolkit Daily, Episode 2)

By Centre Team on Tue, 24 Mar, 2020 - 11:41

Today’s episode brings friends together from Ireland, England and the USA to look at the very technology that connect us for use in things like this. Come and get meta with us about Zoom!

With the launch of our daily meditations we discuss how better versions of the Internet and its underlying technologies mean an evolution – and possibly a revolution – in how we conceive of Buddhist practice (and everything else) in community. 

What does a mature web context for...

The Dharma Toolkit for Uncertain Times - Get Online Resources and Support During the Coronavirus Closure of Buddhist Centres

By Candradasa on Wed, 18 Mar, 2020 - 22:21

From the moment Dharma Centres of all traditions around the world began to close their doors for an indefinite period, here at The Buddhist Centre Online we’ve been thinking and talking about how we might promote and support a sense of community among all who practise in Triratna and beyond. 

For many of us, this kind of sustained physical distancing from our family, workmates, neighbours, fellow travellers in life is at best strange and at worst painful. Some of us already have relatives...

Coming soon: 'Uncontrived Mindfulness' by Vajradevi

By Helen - Windhor... on Fri, 13 Mar, 2020 - 12:44

In December Windhorse Publications announced the first six books we’ll be publishing in 2020, and we’re now delighted to announce the seventh, due for release in October: Uncontrived Mindfulness: ending suffering through attention, curiosity and wisdom by respected meditation teacher, Vajradevi.

The Buddha emphasized that happiness is found through understanding the mind rather than getting caught up in what we experience through the senses. This simple yet radical shift from our usual focus is key to a relaxed and natural – uncontrived – way of observing the...
