Join us for a walk into the forest of the unknown. Enchantments await. Groves of images. Bridges to the unseen. A path that wanders lost until some deeper magic happens... We are back in the realm of art and the making of images, the making of things, the making of meaning. Nagasiddhi's trainings in technical sculpture, prop design and building, th…
 
To mark our latest Home Retreat, led by Tejananda, an excellent conversation and primer on meditation from a body-focussed perspective. Tejananda's key image is of the dynamic mandala.

For Nothing Is Fixed For nothing is fixed, forever, forever, forever, it is not fixed; the earth is always shifting, the light is always changing, the sea does not cease to grind down rock.

This year's Buddhist Action Month (BAM!) - happening around the world throughout June - is about to kick off.

Shimmering images, and no less shimmering experiences. Today's episode begins a series on beauty, poetry, myth, art and symbol as a response to crisis. Taking our cue from W.H. Auden's poem, September 1st, 1939, and his recognition of the need to "love one another or die", we ask how, in the midst of fear – even of death – we can exercise our agenc…
