Double rainbow over Madrid at the end of the weekend, (C) Peter Savaiano

We were afraid because we’d never done anything like this before, but we chose to take a leap of faith. We’d heard that some Shambhala Training weekend courses were being prepared to be done on Zoom, but it seemed that no one had done so yet.

Jeff Scott from Shambhala International recommended that we not overload the weekend and he asked us to let him know how everything went once we finished. So we decided to spread out  the course from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon, and to do only two joint practice sessions – one on Saturday and one on Sunday – and even for those, to offer everybody the option to practice on their own.

On Friday, April 18th we gathered together: 17 participants of all ages, 4 different nationalities, and from 10 cities. Among them was the coordinator’s grandmother, for whom it was the first time using a computer alone. Her husband kindly helped her to log in to each session. Continue…

Good Society Part II: Feeling the Goodness

Photo by Annie Spratt on Unsplash The second part of a two-part series by Shastri Russell Rodgers. For part one, click here. In Part I of this two-part essay, we looked at the genetics behind the universal human impulse to create good society. The logic was this: everywhere there are humans, we form society. Therefore, it must be in our genes. The first part of this essay was basically a book review of Blueprint: The Evolutionary Origins of a Good Society, by Nicholas Christakis, a Yale professor. Dr. Christakis proposes that encoded in our genes is a “social suite” that is common to all societies that are able to survive the test of time and circumstance. This “suite” includes : good leadership (and respect for that leadership), cooperation, ... continue

Poetry Space, Winter 2019

Moving into winter now, fallen leaves and early snow. In this edition we feature four poems from writers both new to us, and some not so new. As a reminder, for the time being we strive to publish most, if not all, of the work we receive, or at least a selection of work from each writer who submits. Given our space constraints, we have a bit of a bias toward shorter poems and cannot make use of photographs, art work, etc. See the guidelines for submission below… We invite all of our readers to submit their work. To submit, simply email your work to [email protected] Please include your poems in the body of the email (no more than 3 poems per submission please), and please include your ... continue
