Re-orientar la mente hacia la libertad / Re-orientar la mente hacia la meditación.

Con la meditación, se puede investigar la naturaleza de la mente, pero una meditación eficaz es raramente factible, sin estabilizar la atención. La mente no ejercitada, oscila entre la agitación y la inactividad; entre la inquietud y el aburrimiento.

El cultivo de atención plena y amable, ha sido parte nuclear de...

Retreat at Keffolds, 1972

By Candradasa on Fri, 12 Jul, 2013 - 19:28Going around over on Facebook is this great video from the early ’70s featuring many of the early pioneers of the Triratna Buddhist Community. The film was made by Steven Burckhardt and Victress Hitchcock.

Here’s what Kamalashila, Buddhafield’s President, had to say about it:

“This is how it was - and in many ways, is still. 1972, the year I discovered Triratna. Beautifully made with fascinating clips of such luminaries as Subhuti, Dhammadinna, Graham...

Amaragita On The Buddhafield Family Friendly Retreat

By Candradasa on Thu, 11 Jul, 2013 - 14:42
A really great conversation with Amaragita, one of the pioneers of Buddhafield retreats that are family friendly, a radical re-imagining of community retreat that has been one of Buddhafield’s most successful projects for 14 years.

How do you maintain a deep practice of the Dharma when you have a family? How can householders bring the Buddha’s teachings to bear on their lives and also feed their own experience into the wider sangha?

A fascinating look at aspects of...

Buddhafield Total Immersion Meditation Retreat: Beloved on the Earth

By Centre Team on Sun, 7 Jul, 2013 - 19:46
Late Fragment by Raymond Carver
And did you get what
you wanted from this life, even so?
I did.
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself
beloved on the earth.
Led by Paramananda, Padmadasi and Maitridevi
Easterbrook, near Yeoford, Devon, Friday 6 September-Friday 4 October

Our relationship with the modern world is highly complex but, at heart, our feeling of ease in the world is dependent on being present, open and fully ourselves, with simplicity...

Buddhafield Photography

By Satyadarshin on Thu, 13 Jun, 2013 - 22:33I’ve recently uploaded a backlog of photos to the Buddhafield Flickr account.

I’ve been a consistent Buddhafield photographer since about 2010, when I bought a new Canon SX210 compact. I started because I was aware of a very serious lack of photos about the Buddhafield Café, with which I’ve volunteered and worked for about 14 years. I’d then recently taken on development of the Buddhafield website, www.buddhafield.com, which had been stuck in the...

Buddhafield eBooks - Paramananda - On Retreat with Buddhafield

By Candradasa on Fri, 24 May, 2013 - 16:31As we mentioned yesterday, while we wait for some voices from the Buddhafield Green Earth Awakening Camp to filter through from the hills we’ll keep posting some talks that give a good sense of the distinct approach Buddhafield takes to practice. Here’s another of Lokabandhu’s excellent mini-eBooks featuring Paramananda on retreat at Buddhafield.

Paramananda is an excellent guide to meditation and to retreat. Get his books here.
