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.

Running a Course in Korea and Elsewhere

I am currently leading courses on Buddhist psychology here in Seoul, Korea, but as I am putting the course onto this site as we go along, members of La Ville au Roi (Eleusis) are also responding so it is a bit as though the course is going on in several countries at the same time which is nice.

From The Paris Review:

For fifteen years the writer Varlam Shalamov was imprisoned in the Gulag for participating in “counter-revolutionary Trotskyist activities.” He endured six of those years enslaved in the gold mines of Kolyma, one of the coldest and most hostile places on earth. While he was awaiting sentencing, one of his short stories was…

The Buddha, Season 1, Episode 1

Posted by Geeta Chari on June 29, 2018 at 9:21 1 Comment

I have been watching The Buddha on Netflix, and although I came well-prepared to scoff, there is a surprising amount of food for thought from a Pureland perspective. What follows is a review of the Pureland touches in the episode, coloured inevitably by my upbringing in India, although I have now lived in Britain for more than half my life.

The scene opens in the republic of Kapilavastu, depicted as a green and pleasant land, with the Himalayan mountains as a backdrop. (I was…

Nembutsu Question

Posted by Dayamay Dunsby on April 20, 2018 at 8:22 1 Comment

I found this in a book that I'm reading. It has challenged my current "understanding" of the Nembutsu. I tend to think of the name itself as salvation and the bridge to the Pure Land...

"...Nembutsu is not a means to gain salvation but a reflection of it. Shinran acknowledges there is nembutsu without true entrusting because he lived in an environment where nembutsu was recited for benefits and merit. By itself it cannot produce true entrusting. Nevertheless, they are inseparable as…
