The Still Point of the Turning World (Five-Week Series)

By Candradasa on Mon, 21 Sep, 2015 - 21:07

Change is coming to the seasons. If you’re in the northern hemisphere, the visible signs of natural impermanence are arriving on every autumnal breeze. If you’re in the southern hemisphere, new life is unfurling all around…

What better way to mark the change that is upon us by sitting together, quietly, in stillness, and always in good company wherever we are in the world. Come and join us to sit online for the next five Tuesdays, September 22nd through October...

Meditations From The Anuruddha Sutta - Week 5: Love and the Ending of Stress

By Candradasa on Mon, 3 Aug, 2015 - 22:32

We continue our six week series of Tuesday meditations based on the Anuruddha Sutta and the Buddha’s description of how the qualities of a Dharma farer relate to the practices they engage in - especially in meditation itself.

This week we’ll be going into the idea of the connection between discerning our relationship to others and our ability to respond with kindness to whatever arises between us and them. A quietly transformational practice where ‘us’ and ‘them’ begins to shift into...

Meditations From The Anuruddha Sutta - Week 3

By Candradasa on Mon, 20 Jul, 2015 - 20:46

This Dhamma is for one whose persistence is aroused, not for one who is lazy.’ Thus was it said. With reference to what was it said? There is the case where a person keeps their persistence aroused for abandoning unskillful mental qualities and taking on skillful mental qualities. They are steadfast, solid in their effort, not shirking their duties with regard to skillful mental qualities. ‘This Dhamma is for one whose persistence is aroused, not for one who is lazy.’

There is the case where a person, when living in seclusion, is visited by persons, nuns, lay men, lay women, kings, royal ministers, sectarians & their disciples. With their mind bent on seclusion, tending toward seclusion, inclined toward seclusion, aiming at seclusion, relishing renunciation, they converse with them only as much as is necessary
