There is so much happening in the Buddhist, meditation, and mindfulness communities, and we want to make sure you know about it! Here’s the latest from the online community.

  • The Buddhist Peace Fellowship explores: what is nonviolence?
  • How Much is an Opinion Really Worth? When do our opinions get in the way of fully experiencing reality? Dharma practitioner and teacher Matt Bieber shares his thoughts.
  • Are you in or near New York City? Buddhist Art News has a schedule of guided tours for the exhibit “Hindu and Buddhist Vision in Indian and Southeast Asian Art,” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, “an extraordinary array of masterworks dating from 3000 BC to the mid-nineteenth century AD.”
  • Wan Hing Cheung at Elephant Journal presents A Case for Traveling Solo. She writes: “We all reach a tipping-point in our lives, when we are on the verge of something grand. We feel it in our bones. Placing ourselves in foreign places that feel new and uncomfortable disrupts our zone of familiarity. It causes our mind to be hyper-focused, to look at life’s issues from angles that may often surprise us.”
  • The Jizo Chronicles invite us to explore Random Acts of Generosity.
