La Ville au Roi

This site is for discussion and sharing of news relating to the work of Dr. David Brazier and his associates, friends, students and disciples. The subject matter is broad and controversial points are discussed.

La Ville au Roi is the ancient French name of the home and retreat of David Brazier, author of ten books, spiritual teacher, doctor of philosophy, president of the International Zen Therapy Institute (ITZI), and head of the Amida Order. Here he lives, writes, receives guests and reflects upon a full and varied life.

The term Eleusis alludes to the ancient mystery religions. The spirituality of this place draws upon East and West, remythologising, deepening and broadening our appreciation of the mysterious thread of life.

The image of the sunset represents the 'Westward Journey' that in oriental Buddhism signifies the spiritual path leading to the source of all wisdom and awakening.

La Ville au Roi lies in an area off the beaten track, a refuge, retreat and place of peace and spiritual restoration. It is poor land for farming and there is no local industry other than forestry and farming. We are gradually reafforesting the land respecting, observing and being healed by its eternal cycles.

It is possible to visit by prior arrangement.

The love your neighbour campaign in Birmingham came about after the decision to leave the EU. There was an increase in racist attacks and the Church of England hierarchy felt they should take action. What they did was encourage schools and other community venues to put free of charge bright orange banners on fencing etc with the words love your neighbour on them. At the moment funding has been obtained to make more banners to replace any of the 1000 that have gone up already and to encourage… Continue

Lived in a cottage in the mountains all alone.

The only company he had were the animals and the trees.

Though company they were none the less spoke in language only the soul hears.

Songs of days passed they sang just…

Nembutsu morning

Posted by Kaspalita on March 18, 2017 at 9:33 2 Comments

Honen encouraged his followers to set aside special times for intense practice; half a day, or a whole day, or a week. We’ll be continuously chanting nembutsu for three hours this morning. Unlike Honen I don’t manage to recite sixty or seventy thousand nembutsu everyday, as I’m going about ordinary life, so I love these set aside times when I can immerse myself in the presence of the Buddha, in the Buddha-field, in the Pure Land.…
