The Web Site: La Ville au Roi (Eleusis) is a site for David Brazier and his friends, readers, colleagues, students and interested others to discuss and share news, views and information relating to work and thought on everything from spirituality to cookery, politics to gardening, eastern wisdom to modern relationships, and so on. It also carries news and information of the place in France where he lives.
The Place: La Ville au Roi is the historic name of the property set deep in the French countryside, an area of forests, rivers and villages. The term Eleusis alludes to the spiritual traditions of the classical world. The philosophy here draws upon East and West, remythologising, deepening and broadening our appreciation of the dynamic of life in tune with the natural seasons. La Ville au Roi lies in an area off the beaten track, a refuge, retreat and place of peace and replenishment.
David Brazier is head of the Amida Order of Pureland Buddhism, author of twelve books on Buddhism, psychology and culture as well as many other writings. Here he lives a spiritual life close to nature. His root teachers have been in Japanese Zen and Pureland Buddhism, but, in addition, he has studied with teachers from Thai, Tibetan, Burmese and Vietnamese forms, and also has a deep respect for the mystery paths of other world traditions. In the past he has been involved in many socially engaged initiatives, especially in Britain, Bosnia, and India. He is an international authority on Buddhist psychology and teaches on programmes in Asia and the Americas as well as in Europe.
