  • Workshop with Advayasiddhi: Introduction to Buddhism
    New to Buddhism? Want to find out more what it's about after being at this lovely festival? This is for you!. Hear about the amazxing vision of freedom and happiness and how you can easily put some of its teachings into practice in your own life.
  • Dhivan: The Buddha Broke my Heart...
    The Buddha taught love as freedom of heart. But what if we get burned in love's fire? A talk on love, betrayal and broken-heartedness.
  • Kulamitra: Warm our Hearts - Let the Rain Come In!
    To develop loving kindness takes sustained effort at frequent intervals. Paradoxically this means spontanteous opening to all around us. Discover and practise our capacity to love rather than create new emotions.
  • Maitridevi: The Tender Gravity of Kindness
    How to find depth in a superficial world - a talk about love and longing and the way that they pull us deeper into life.
  • Shantigarbha: The Empathic Buddha
    How did the Buddha embody empathy? How did he make it the basis of compassion?
  • Christopher Titmuss: Seeing Emptiness is True Love
    Emptiness is the abiding home of the wise. The realisation of emptiness allows the natural movement of love. Love only expresses through Emptiness. Are you empty? Are you willing to be empty?
  • Christopher Titmuss: Does Mindfulness Inhibit Love?
    Mindfulness has become an industry for stress reduction. It is defined as being in the moment without judging the moment. When love emerges from the depth of our being, it expresses as action. One has then made a judgement to respond to a situation. So what is the connection between mindfulness and love?
