END OF SUMMER: Looking forward

The year is turning, the leaves are going yellow, wind and rain break up the sunnier times.My trip to Korea proved to be a great success. Last year I was unable to go due to illness, so it was good to get back into the swing of the work and the programme and to see many of my students again. We had a very good three weeks which is all written up on the site here. Then I was back for a week or so, harvesting tomatoes, of which…See More

One of the best of things is good breakfast conversation and after long deep sleep what better to discuss than the dreams of the night before? Dreams are both mysterious and revealing and the many different systems of interpretation can each throw some light or trigger us into reminiscences or sharing of hopes, fears and experiences. Eleusis is an excellent place for dream work as the closeness to nature induces good sleep and the magical atmosphere inspires imagery.

A Special Weekend

Posted on June 26, 2017 at 23:52 4 Comments

I have spent the past weekend at meetings of the Amida Order in Malvern in UK. Apart from approving the advancement of a number of good people there was not a lot of "business" so we were able to concentrate upon our relationships with each other and with life and upon practising together. The whole thing turned out very well. The temple in Malvern is very comfortable and the location superb. It is difficult to convey the quality of interaction between people to those who were not there -…

I have a good friend Lin, who would very much like accompany me on a visit to France. A later Autumn/Winter/Spring visit may be on the cards......

"Everyday has been a miracle for all of us in the 2017 Korean Workshop."

This is a special time for all of us: The participants' level of aspiration to learn and practice as they learn from you is higher than previous years; and your teaching is profound and I feel like we are a chosen few who are blessed. I can not think of any other better cultivation of mind and Buddhist training.

Thank you very much and enjoy being in Korea this summer.

Found this on a Chogyam Trungpa video…

''The relationship between student and teacher is like a dance…

In relating with the teacher, your critical input and your surrendering work together. They’re not working against each other. The more input you get from the teacher and the phenomenal world and the more you develop, at the same time, the more you question. So there is a kind of dance taking place between the teacher and yourself. You are not particularly trying to switch off…


Reflections on Foolishness.

Posted by Adam Dunsby on September 5, 2017 at 11:50 1 Comment

I sometimes can’t believe how defective I am!! Whilst despairing of myself the other day I remembered a Shinran teaching that I found some time ago. It really made me think and reinforced my resolve to practice.

It is a Pureland teaching about the depth of our sin preventing us from being genuinely good. Our efforts to be decent, caring beings are always based in and therefore contaminated by our self centredness, greed hatred and delusion. This is due to the…

Great Intentions.

Posted by Adam Dunsby on August 3, 2017 at 22:42 0 Comments

  • The power of intentions is a topic that comes up regularly for me and always provides me with food for thought. In a recent service I was struck by the gravity of the Bodhisattva vows that we sing as part of our liturgy. ”Innumerable…
