Transforming Self - Ratnaguna (VIDEO)

By sanghadhara on Tue, 27 Aug, 2019 - 11:25

A wonderful first talk of the 2019 International Gathering, whose theme is ‘Alchemy of the Dharma’. The utterly delightful Ratnaguna takes us through the true miracle of transforming ourselves via the magic of a practice in which we also learn to let ourselves change. 

This is a beautiful, reflective, funny take on the challenges of the Dharma life. Ratnaguna’s breadth of reference is itself a joy: taking in Greek philosophy, Hans Christian Andersen, and writings on the nearness of death to life...

Sanghamani with a great second talk from the 2019 Triratna International Gathering. Her theme on this Alchemy of the Dharma weekend is how we can transform ourselves in order to transform our communities. And she leads with fearlessness in discussing her own work and practice in this regard.

As a fundraiser at the cutting edge of the practice of connection – trying to forge a sense of mutually vital relationship with strangers (who are not necessarily pleased to find you at their...

In the third and final talk from the 2019 Triratna International Gathering, Prasadacarin explores the theme of ‘transforming world’. Taking ‘everything is burning with the three fires of greed, hatred and delusion’ as his starting point, he poses the question: what are the alternatives to these fires?

The three jewels of the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha are a framework that could transform the world and Prasadacarin draws out what each jewel or refuge can offer.

Creating a Heaven on Earth: Day 3 of the 2019 Triratna International Gathering

By Sadayasihi on Sun, 25 Aug, 2019 - 23:39

“…[the International Gathering is] quite intentionally like a mix of a retreat and a festival…but it’s a whole retreat and a whole festival happening at the same time!”

On the final full day of the 2019 Triratna International Gathering we tune in with Sanghamani, who gave one of the keynote talks, Sanjay from London and David, who is on the current men’s Dharma Life course at Adhisthana, about how they’ve been finding the gathering.

Sharing their favourite moments - of...

By Sadayasihi on Sun, 25 Aug, 2019 - 00:23

Sadayasihi is reunited with Gina Plant Cabrita and Christine Thuring who all first met on the 2014 Triratna International Gathering. They recall that Gathering and how, for each of them, it marked a pivotal moment in their lives - and what they did afterwards.

The conversation then turns to day 2 of the 2019 Triratna International Gathering and what’s been happening. We hear more about the significance of the international dimension - in particular, how coming together in...
