Join us at 7 pm (UK time) on Tuesday, 13th July, when we’ll be hosting a live online event to launch our latest book, I Hear Her Words: An Introduction to Women in Buddhism. Danasamudra, co-founder of the Triratna Women Project and librarian of the Sangharakshita Library at Adhisthana, will be in conversation with the book’s author, Alice Collett.
I Hear Her Words tells the rarely told stories of the many inspiring Buddhist women who ignored or fought against attempted constraint to become devoted disciples, practitioners, and esteemed teachers. It’s an ideal introduction to gender studies in Buddhism and the history of women in the tradition.

Uncontrived Mindfulness soon available from the US
If you live in the Americas, you may be pleased to learn that Vajradevi’s Uncontrived Mindfulness: Ending Suffering through Attention, Curiosity and Wisdom will be available through our US distributors, Consortium, from Tuesday, 6th July.
Uncontrived Mindfulness is a deep dive into the practice of exploring our experience as it happens. The emphasis is on cultivating wisdom, using the tools of attention, curiosity and discernment to recognize and see through the delusion that is causing our suﬀering. Vajradevi is a warm and insightful guide to this exploration, drawing on her intensive and wide-ranging practice of satipaṭṭhāna meditation. Guided meditations are included.
