We’re Nottingham Buddhist Centre’s young Buddhist group. We get together monthly to meditate and practice the dharma together. That means meditation, tea, and talking about life’s biggest questions from a Buddhist perspective, and sometimes vegan cake. We try to approach things like ethics and meditation in ways that are practical but rooted in deep principles.
This month we will be exploring the following -
Would the Buddha have a Facebook account? How do we practice the precepts online? Why do we turn off our phones on retreat?
The internet is an increasingly large part of our lives as 21st century (novice) Bodhisattvas. It offers us a chance to connect with Sangha all over the world, and access to an incredible amount of Dharma texts at our fingertips.
But navigating social media, "fake news", and a general abundance of information and advertising brings new challenges to our practice.
Join us for meditation, tea, and discussion on how to integrate the internet into our lives skilfully.
