The Spiritual Community Beyond Borders

Posted by Sadayasihi on Wed, 6 Jun, 2018 - 11:10

As the Mainland Europe Young Buddhist Convention in Valencia draws nearer, three ‘Young Buddhists’ from Valencia share a bit about their inspiration to practice the Dharma and how they have benefitted.

Estela:

“Last year I attended the meeting of Young Buddhists in Berlin. It was an incredible experience! I met young people from other countries, and it surprised me that we could connect really well despite cultural differences.

Saddhanandi on Responsibility Q&A

Posted by Prajnaketu on Mon, 16 Apr, 2018 - 15:19

In this Q&A session with the young facilitators, Saddhanandi explores with great depth and humour the topic of responsibility - How do we learn from mistakes? How do we measure success? When do we act as individuals and when as group members? How does spiritual growth manifest in action? And so many more pithy teachings!

Created by Prajnaketu on Tue, 23 Feb, 2016 - 15:03

Young Facilitators Kula (group)

Created by Prajnaketu on Tue, 23 Feb, 2016 - 15:03

This is the portal for all young facilitators to share resources, ideas and inspirations. It’s envisaged as a knowledge pool for members of the kula to draw on to take their young Buddhist group to the next level, and a way of rejoicing in what’s going well.

So what has worked for you? The sorts of things that you could post are:

  • Ideas for themes
  • Publicity images/strategies
  • Recordings/videos of talks
  • Photos
  • Retreat ideas
  • Quick updates on how your last event went
  • Upcoming plans
  • Questions and challenges
  • Whatever you think will help others and keep a connection within this kula…

Share away!
