Out now: 'The Burning House' by Shantigarbha

From Windhorse Publications on Mon, 23 Aug, 2021 - 15:15

There have been wildfires in California, Turkey, Italy, Greece and Siberia as well as floods in the UK, Germany, Belgium, India and China.

Chairs' Letter – July 2021

From College of Public Preceptors on Sat, 31 Jul, 2021 - 14:25

Dear Order Members and friends,

Ratnadharini has been encouraging the College deputies to write this monthly letter occasionally, so I agreed to take the plunge this month!

July started with an international, online weekend meeting of the College. Since I became a public preceptor in 2015 the College has met twice a year in March and November so it is a new development to meet in the summer. The meeting worked well and I appreciated connecting with the other public preceptors. Due to the...

Uncontrived Mindfulness: ending suffering through attention, curiosity and wisdom

From The Community Toolkit for Uncertain Times on Thu, 22 Jul, 2021 - 10:30

Led by Vajradevi

I’m running another online meditation retreat from Saturday 25th September to Friday 1st October 2021. The retreat is aimed at Order Members and Mitras and is offered on a Dana basis.

The emphasis will be on a relaxed, open, and attentive quality of ‘knowing’, receptive to whatever is happening within our experience. We will be cultivating mindfulness that is ‘uncontrived’ and natural and looking to bring ‘right view’ – a wisdom perspective - to each moment of awareness.

I’ll be drawing on...
