Tip No. 5: Getting the most out of your spaces

By Candradasa on Fri, 13 Jul, 2012 - 23:45

We’ve been up and running for a month or so properly now and our To Do list is already as long as all our arms laid end to end! It’s amazing hearing feedback and people’s excitements and frustrations at what they can and can’t (yet) do on our new platform. We’re committed to developing the site in line with how it’s actually being used, and while we can’t match Facebook quite yet, there’s still a lot...

Meditation in Citizens square 1

Meditation in Citizens square 1

By Viryabodhi on Fri, 1 Jun, 2012 - 21:16On Friday 5th of May a small group of us meditated on Medborgarplatsen, Stockholm. A great thing to do. This was my view, for a period, if I’d kept my eyes open; which I obviously did for this period. Taken with my IPhone 3GS.

The Triratna Story by Vajragupta

The Triratna Story by Vajragupta

By Candradasa on Mon, 23 Apr, 2012 - 21:43“This is a courageous and important book. Written by a serious adherent, and commissioned by the Triratna Community itself, it defies all expectations to tell the brilliant, troubled, and inspiring history of this unique Western Buddhist movement with a thoroughness and honesty that, frankly, would not have been possible had it been written by an outsider. This is a valuable and instructive text for anyone interested in looking beyond the idealism of the Buddhist teachings to what actually happens when...

The Urban Retreat Online - A Trial of the Social Network

By Candradasa on Sat, 21 Apr, 2012 - 19:54

I gave this talk at the European Chair’s Assembly in January 2012 about the trial we did during the Urban Retreat (October 2011) for Groups and Projects on thebuddhistcentre.com. We learned a lot and this is a report on the experience - and the potential - of a Triratna social network, with some considerations of the bigger questions about how online contexts can help foster a sense of community and support people in their personal practice.
