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,...

Die Angst Loslassen

By Centre Team on Tue, 2 Mar, 2021 - 21:08

Vom Buddha heißt es, er sei vollkommen furchtlos gewesen. Was bedeutet das für uns?

Wir alle erleben manchmal Angst. Und Angst hat ihre Vorteile! Sie kann uns aufrütteln und hilft uns Gefahren zu vermeiden. Aber Angst kann auch uns auch gefangen halten und lähmen. Sie kann uns daran hindern, das Leben so zu leben, wie wir es wollen. 

Die Welt ist manchmal ganz schön angsteinflößend. Wie können wir also selbst furchtlos werden?

Dies ist ein schöner Animationsfilm von Aryajit über Angst und wie wir ihr begegnen...

With limited spaces left, avoid disappointment and book onto this online retreat, led by Saddhanandi, Shubhavyuha and team.

Using the words of the Buddha in the Karaniya Metta Sutta as our guide, we will focus on metta, grounding it in ethics, the practice of it in meditation, and the realisation of the fullness of metta in wisdom.

In cultivating metta, we are seeking to do something both ordinary, in developing qualities such as kindness, friendliness, patience, generosity - and something extraordinary, as metta moves...

Bodhilila on 'Nourishing Resilience'

By Sophie_WLBCPublicity on Tue, 23 Feb, 2021 - 12:29

A chance to watch Bodhilila’s contribution from the Buddhists Across Traditions’ Black History USA and LGBTQIA+ Month.

Excerpt from the event blurb to get a sense of some of the themes covered: 


“As activists, people of colour and those living often within marginalized bodies, it is important to take time to nourish ourselves from the daily trauma that we face in our daily lives. Nourishing ourselves is not an indulgence, self-care is a necessity for our survival and a living embodiment of

Highlights from Parinirvana Celebrations

By kusaladevi on Fri, 19 Feb, 2021 - 14:04

Triratna communities around the world have been marking Parinirvana Day, which occurs on 15th February each year, commemorating the physical death and final Nirvana of the Buddha Shakyamuni.

Parinirvana Day is a time to recall the Buddha’s final days and his passing into final Nirvana, as he leaves his physical body. Many centres reflect on this by hearing verses from the Maha-parinibbana Sutta, a beautiful evocation of the Buddha’s generous teachings and acts, even in his final few days. Included in...
