Here’s some more about it:
* Conversations – Every month we’ll post a conversation hosted by an Order member with guests such as: Iain McGilchrist (the divided brain), Paul Gilbert (Compassion-Focussed Therapy), Penny Sartori (near-death experiences), Bernardo Kastrup (metaphysical idealism), and Carol Bowman (past life memories).
* We’ll also be in conversation with Padmavajra about the Shepherd’s Search for Mind and Subhuti about Buddhist vision of the nature of mind.
* Interactive Seminars. The conversations will be followed by monthly interactive zoom seminars exploring our guests’ work – including Q&As, break-out rooms, and clips of the YouTube conversations.
* Online Morning Meditations. We’ll follow this with a week of online morning meditations, with guidance from Sona, Vidyamala, Vajradevi, and others.
* Retreats – We’ll be hosting in-person and online retreats at Adhisthana, and an Order-only retreat
