Event Description

Four afternoon sessions with David Brazier in Milan
(English with translation into Italian)
18 & 25 January + 1 & 8 February 2018

What do we need to be mindful of in relationships and, when we are in a relationship, what is our mind (and heart) actually full of? Love is not governed by logic. In this course, building upon our own experiences, we shall go deeper into the hidden dynamics that play out as we try to get closer to one another: the fear, the joy, the hurt, the longing, the ways in which we seek to love one another and cope with the difficulties and disappointments that inevitably arise. This course is suitable for anybody who has experience of life and especially for therapists and spiritual practitioners who may have the role of helping couples and of dealing with the stresses aroused in themselves in the course of their attempts to do so. This is an experiential course rather than a theoretical one. The theory behind it is largely drawn from Buddhist psychology that sees all intentional action as consequential and all intentions as conditioned in a variety of ways, and prescribes routes to liberation through compassion and insight. Whether you are interested from a professional or personal perspective, the personal dimension cannot be avoided and we shall, as far as possible, work with actual experience rather than abstract ideas.

Johnny Hallyday died just after midnight this morning.

A vous autres, hommes faibles et merveilleux

Qui mettez tant de grâce a vous retirer du jeu

Il faut qu'une main posée sur votre épaule

Vous pousse vers la vie, cette main tendre et légère

On a tous quelque chose en nous de Tennessee

Cette volonté de prolonger la nuit

Ce désir fou de vivre une autre vie

Ce rêve en nous avec ses mots à lui

Quelque chose de Tennessee

Cette force qui nous…

i have been attending a parent and toddler group at the Steiner school in Kings Langley for a little while. I first started going there with Selena and then started taking Dorian there in September. It’s a lovely place with a different outlook and philosophy, and where I have learned about the Rubicon stage, but unfortunately the regulatory body Ofsted had rated it badly and so it had to introduce radical measures in order to stay open. 

But these changes have made things worse for…


By sheer power of aspiration

Ever since my ordination back in Dec 2003 I have always loved being involved in or being a witness to someone taking a step onto the Buddhist path. The aspirant or candidate taking on the Amida precepts always appears solemn, and sincere, and as I listen to the vows and see how willing they are to aspire to live an ideal life they become even bigger with a certain amount of gravitas and I find myself shrinking and becoming less Significant. It is a wonderfully moving experience and so I always… Continue

letter to Father Christmas

Dear Father Christmas,

Please can I have a light up Christmas tree and the prettiest baubles in your workshop. Love Selena

My daughter is 5 and loves decorations. She would love to have a garden with lots of flowers and fruit trees and plants but we live in a flat with a balcony so she spends time enjoying other people’s garden whenever she can. So maybe this Christmas we will try and create a mini Pureland garden on our balcony.

This Bodhi retreat she and her… Continue
