Spit It Out - The Essence Of Buddhist Desire

by Daniel Williams, Huffington Post UK, July 31, 2017

London, UK -- I have been away for a while. Away from civilisation (to an extent), technology, work, and news - all the stuff that tends to come with civilisation. Last year I ordained as a Buddhist monk for about six months and until the beginning of the year have been living in forests in small Kutis in Thailand. I think I learned a lot. Or maybe not.

INEB to organize "Awakening Leadership Training Program"

The Buddhist Channel, June 16, 2017

"Education needs to be re-envisioned to include the cultivation
of wisdom, as well as learning to live in society and overcoming oppression and exploitation. For education to be more effective, it has to be dialogical, inclusive, and compassionate, and needs to heal the rift between body and mind... Buddhist education begins with humanity’s ultimate questions: What is the meaning of  life?  What  is  our  own  deepest  nature?  What  is  our  responsibility  to  others?  Buddhism  does  not  separate  life  from education" -- Sulak Sivaraksa

Bangkok, Thailand
-- The INEB Institute in collaboration with Ecovillage Transition Asia will be organizing a 5-month "Awakening Leadership Training Program" program for committed social change workers.
