Emergent Community Online (The Dharma Toolkit Daily, Episode 16)
How has the early promise of the Internet held up when it comes to new forms of global community and ways of Buddhist practice? Join us for some wonderful sharing around what community means – at least for today!
Our guests discuss the new online contexts for Buddhist practice, evoking the uses of imagination within transitional, liminal spaces. We riff on new emergent forms of practice and modes of engagement that are bringing our community to life in unexpected ways.
We also look at how surprisingly well the early promise of the Internet seems to have held up – and the potential consequences for how we conceive of and organise communities, especially when also dealing with the grief and the losses involved when the world is re-made through crisis.
Join us for some wonderful sharing around what community means – at least for today!
Check out our Dharma Toolkit space for details of all we have on offer to help you make it through the weirdness and stay inspired.
Come meditate with us any week day!
