The central Buddhist notion of equanimity is very well reflected in cognitive flexibility, if one imagines to take equanimity into practice :-)

visiting Eleusis

Posted on January 16, 2013 at 19:11 0 Comments

Looking back at a wonderful visit at Eleusis the first days of January. Although the weather was grey and the air was cold, it was very nice to be there and to see, discuss, sense and embrace the potential of the place. I am glad to have been of any help on the on going work. It was nice to feel so connected and to meet our very nice neighbour, Tamuly Anette!

I did also very much apreciate the atmosphere to study and the possibility…

Hi Mirjam, thank you, it is nice to catch up and feels good to be part of this.

I hope to see you at Eleusis one of these days when I can get over there!

Warm regards, Mark.

Dear Mirjam

it was nice meeting you at "Oasis of Long Life" the other day. I wish you all the best for your forthcoming exam. We shall certainly meet again since I live so close to Eleusis! A bientôt!

Hi Mirjam, thanks very much for your friend request, much appreciated. I read of your recent car journey with Dharmavidya and Jnanamati and remembered back to my recent time in their company.

I am planning to visit Eleusis around June and July next year, maybe we will meet there or at another gathering somewhere. best wishes  Rob

MY MEDICAL CONDITION

Posted by David Brazier on June 26, 2019 at 18:04 6 Comments

My medical condition continues to be a mystery. It is clear that I do not have any of the big nasty things - brain tumour, cracked skull, stroke, etc - as these have been ruled out by MRI investigation. Nonetheless I continue to have persistent, continuous head pain that varies in intensity and I become exhausted by the least effort so that I am functioning like an invalid incapable of doing very much. There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…

Grace.

Posted by Dayamay Dunsby on June 2, 2019 at 1:02 4 Comments

“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue

This is a short video of a Buddhist monk and his family. 

It raised questions on parenting and Buddhism - does detachment (or perhaps quietism), as practiced here, lead to demotivation and disengagement with the world around one?

His children find the detachment practised by the monk disquieting. They appreciate the irony of detachment, which is supposed to…

I have recently been made aware of a practice known as Ho’ponopono. Ho’ponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing practice, based on universal forgiveness, that was rediscovered and popularised in the 80s. A man called Joe Vitale(Hawaiian I think)  became enchanted by the practice after his daughter was healed from an…
