How to meet difficulties with an open heart and a big mind? In fact, how to meet everything that way?
A traditional Buddhist answer is to strengthen the Brahma Viharas and unlock the secret potential of our being’s capacity to live with love, compassion, joy and equanimity; to live with courageous wisdom whatever we encounter in life.
I’m running another online meditation retreat from Saturday 25th September to Friday 1st October 2021. The retreat is aimed at Order Members and Mitras and is offered on a Dana basis.
The emphasis will be on a relaxed, open, and attentive quality of ‘knowing’, receptive to whatever is happening within our experience. We will be cultivating mindfulness that is ‘uncontrived’ and natural and looking to bring ‘right view’ – a wisdom perspective - to each moment of awareness.

Ksantikara has been recording a series of conversations with six fellow order members, talking to each of them about their Yiddam and Sadhana practice. Every time he returned to the office after having had one of these conversations, he would be almost bouncing, his eyes sparkling.
He kept saying how good these conversations were, how much he enjoyed them, and that he was really looking forward to sharing the recordings with the order.
From the Dharma programme: Talks by Saddhanandi and Kusaladevi; Dharma via magic tricks (Prof Brian Rappert); workshops with Tejananda; Meditation and Deep Ecology with Sanghasiha; meditation group review (Anuttara); ‘Kiss...

‘Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.’
Join Bodhilila and Prajnanita as we boldly explore the world of Amoghasiddhi, the archetypal Buddha of action and fearlessness. His name means, ‘Unobstructed Success’ and he is particularly associated with integration and the union of opposites. On this retreat we will find out how the Buddha worked with anxiety and fear while also being inspired and...
