Sub30 Online Retreat: Taste of Freedom

Wed, 3 Mar, 2021 - 17:24

Sub30 retreat: The Taste of Freedom
Led by Ksantikara, Aryadasa, Kusaladevi, Prajnahriyadaya & Prajnaketu

12-14 March

Book here

Drawing inspiration from Sangharakshita’s rousing (and much-loved) 1979 lecture, we’ll use our computer screens to meditate together, hear short talks, gather in discussion groups and try some online rituals – with plenty of breaks in-between to save our eyes (& our minds!)

If you’re aged 30 or under, then this retreat is for you – it doesn’t matter if you’re brand new to meditation and Buddhism,...

Reflections from Akasajoti and Varadhi - Turning Arrows into Flowers: Day 6

From The Community Toolkit for Uncertain Times on Wed, 20 May, 2020 - 11:01

Here’s a delightful conversation between friends: Akasajoti, based in London, UK and the recently ordained Varadhi, in Melbourne, Australia!

Akasajoti and Varadhi explore their favourite mind-training slogans – ‘of the two witnesses, hold the principal one’ and ‘liberate yourself by examining and analysing’ – looking at how empowering it can be to bring greater honesty and self-awareness into their lives.

Prajnahridaya's Reflections on the slogan “All Dharma agrees at one point” - Turning Arrows into Flowers: Day 5

From The Community Toolkit for Uncertain Times on Tue, 19 May, 2020 - 11:28

Prajnahridaya, living at Padmaloka retreat centre in Norfolk, UK, shares his reflections around this slogan, reflecting on the essence of the Mind Training teachings - a release from Ego Clinging.

⁣⁣⁣He reflects on the dangers of trying to get rid of something and focuses instead on the freedom, inspiration and beauty that can arise when we let go of clinging.
