Join us for an evening of meditation, music, poetry, personal stories, and generosity. Lyla June and Minal Hajratwala will perform. Christine Thuring (from the Vancouver sangha), and Tim Skufca & Marta Meengs (from the Montana sangha) will share their experiences with engaged Buddhism on behalf of the earth. We'll also introduce the Green Sangha's love affair with the rainforest.
Note: There are several events, each with a different start time. This event marks the start of a coming together of all those in Triratna and beyond for whom concern for the environment is an intrinsic part of their Dharma practice. We will be gathering online on Earth Day (April 22nd) for a period of meditation, sitting in solidarity with this beautiful fleeting world. So, wherever you are in the world, please join us.
We're very happy and fortunate that Bodhilila is able to join us on zoom to lead a healing meditation morning.
Curso de 4 semanas - 6 de mayo - 25 de mayo, de 6pm a 8pm
¿Te gustaría vivir la vida más plenamente?
Saturday February 5, 10am to 12 noon
Tejananda invites us to explore the qualities of love and compassion in their depths through meditation, discovering what is readily available to us when we are grounded in our senses and able to "look" at our experience in particular ways.
The morning will include Tonglen compassion meditation.
Courageous Conversations about Race is a series of 3 discussions curated by Vimalasara where members of the Triratna Buddhist Order will be talking about race from their personal experience.
The SFBC is committed to working with Sangha Members and others to share resources and training and take action where we can towards ending the oppression of Black, Indigenous and People of Color in our own communities and around the world.
This list is very much a work in progress.
Triratna BIPOC/BAME events and spaces
Remembering a beautifully long day involving Triratna communities from New Zealand to the West Coast of the USA. You can relive the story of the day on this page.
The day was offered on a dana (donation) basis with all funds offered to our sangha members in India, who face great hardship as the coronavirus crisis disproportionately impacts their lives. The goal is to raise £150,000 – and at time of writing we have nearly £45,000 donated – many thanks!
