Tricycle Events

The Buddhist website Tricycle, (which accompanies the Tricycle magazine), often some has engaging and interactive on-line events. At the moment they're running two programs that sound really interesting. 

On April 19th, Allan Lokos will be leading members of the Tricycle Community Book Club in an on-line discussion of his book, Pocket Peace: Effective Practices for Enlightened Living. Allan is the founder and guiding teacher of the Community Meditation Center in New York City.

Audio readings from the text will supplement the discussion.  If you want to be part of this, it's free - just head on over to Tricycle and join up with their book club. 

The other event is a four part video 'retreat' with Buddhist writer Stephen Batchelor.  There's an  interview with Stephen in the latest issue of Tricycle. He's a contemporary Buddhist teacher and writer, best known for his secular or agnostic approach to Buddhism. 

To get access to this retreat and other retreats held during the year (as well as a subscription to the  Tricycle Magazine) you have to become a sustaining member of Tricycle.  This costs $30.  (Seems like a very reasonable amount to me - I thought it would be a lot more than that!)

  1. Thanks for this Emma. My husband saw Stephen Batchelor at daylong event in the Bay Area, came home and immediately bought his latest book which is the story of his Buddhist journey. I'm going to check out both of these!
