Spirit Boats

I made origami boats out of paper, scrim, tea and coffee paper, bones, moss, lichen and other natural materials and launched them on a river as a sort of ritual offering. I repeated the ritual on 30th November - Remembrance Day for Lost Species - to highlight…See More

The Incantation of Frida K.

I'm about halfway through The Incantation of Frida K. by Kate Braverman. I was a little reluctant to read about the life of Frida Kahlo again - there seems to be a lot about her. I'm struggling with the book because of this but what makes it a very good read for me is the original writing, the language - beautiful and unusual. I often like a book for the lyrical writing, the imagery, metaphors etc as much as the story.The other similar book in the voice of Frida Kahlo that I've read is "Love…See More

Relationship.

Posted by Adam Dunsby on September 9, 2017 at 20:56 0 Comments

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…

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…
