Triratna Parents (2012)

By Centre Team on Sat, 16 Jul, 2016 - 00:27

This post contains resources for Triratna Parents, especially those seeking to form ‘parent sanghas’ to support one another in the work and practice of parenting.

Best place to start is probably the new Facebook ‘Triratna Buddhist Parents Network‘ page, created by Kamalanandi from Sheffield. There’s a printable A4 poster attached to this post (you can share a link to it here - it comes in two versions spread over two pages – choose your favourite!)

Dharmabyte: Seeing Both Sides

By Rijupatha on Thu, 12 Nov, 2015 - 11:00

Today’s FBA Dharmabyte is entitled “Seeing Both Sides”, an excerpt from the talk “Lightening the Load” by Karunagita.

A great talk from Karunagita, author of “A Path For Parents”, with some key practical insights for anyone trying to figure out how to go deeper with their practice while raising children.
