Welcome to another episode of A Buddhist Podcast. Tonight we have the chapter on Being Understood from the amazing toolkit book called The Talking Revolution (a great read!). The book written by Eddy Canfor-Dumas and Peter Osborne is a great book that I suspect will be in use for a long time to come.

We play a song, Supermoon by the New York band, Ikebe Shakedown, from their radio program, Live at WFMU for Surface Noise with Joe McGasko. The music is available online The Tribe of Noise and we thank Ikebe Shakedown for giving us permission to play it under the auspices of the Creative Commons license platform.

Have a great week.

Welcome to another episode of A Buddhist Podcast. Tonight we have the chapter on Challenging from the amazing toolkit book called The Talking Revolution (possible one of the greatest contributions to a good discussion meeting since 28th April 1253!). The book written by Eddy Canfor-Dumas and Peter Osborne is invaluable and I hope you are getting a lot out of it!

In order to expedite the delivery a little faster I have decided to forego adding the conversation, although super valuable the effort required to improve the Skype recordings has proven a little arduous to ensure a regular update for you. I hope you don’t mind and don’t feel you are missing anything. 

We play a song, Somebody Like You but the inimitable and irrespressible  James Golding, from his album,  Supernatural Glam. The music is available online and on CD and we thank James for giving us permission to play it.

I send you my best for an amazing week.

Hello Everyone! Our show tonight continues with The Talking Revolution and the subject is Responsibility. A great way to share Buddhist concepts with friends and family as there is no jargon or language to get in the way! Published on Amazon, this book is making more headway in organisations and companies than you would believe.

The music tonight comes from another SGI-UK member, Howard Jones, who wrote and performed Building our own Future. Even this track is packed full of value. 

Suitably inspired, the authors Eddy Canfor-Dumas and Peter Osborne, talk with me about responsibility from a Buddhist perspective. A lot for everyone to relate to. Thank you so much for taking time to listen. Have the best week of your life.

This is a wonderful SGI centre in the South of France.

Happy New Year everyone! On this show we have Peter Osborn and Eddy Canfor-Dumas , back with the second installment of The Talking Revolution. This is a great show to share with those who don’t practice as its completely free of jargon and really helpful! Its called, We are relationships. The book, The Talking Revolution has just been published on Amazon and Eddy and Peter are busy responding to queries about it from across the world. 

In tribute to all the great men out there in the world, who may or may not use Gillette products, I play a great record called Big Hearted Man by my long time friend, Jimmy Golding!

Following the them we have some more conversation on the We are relationships chapter of the book. In an age when sometimes there is so little to rejoice about, it’s great to hear such positive conversation. I’m excited as I’ve heard the next chapters and I can’t wait to share them all with you this year.

Thank you for all your feedback! Keep an eye out, this website should be upgraded very soon! Sending you my best for a wonderful week.

Peace and goodwill to everyone! Tonight we have the introduction to a new book called the Talking Revolution written by two members of the SGI from the UK, Peter Osborn and Eddy Canfor-Dumas , who have almost seventy years of Buddhist practice between them. Its an exciting book that has just been published on Amazon. It is a practical approach to communication. I think one of the biggest challenges in explaining Buddhism to the modern world is the need to explain how to apply it in the way we interact with ourselves and others. This book, although brief, will start a talking revolution. We are going to serialize the book in audio on this podcast over the next few weeks.

As an indulgence to how I felt when I was putting the show together, Jody Gnantwas kind enough to give us permission to play Great Day again on the show.

In the second half of the show we have a recording of a Skype conversation between Jason and the two authors of The Talking Revolution. Let us know what you think about the sound quality as we are working on developing the content for a regular segment! Happy New Year!

Tonights episode is the first of a few lectures on a letter Nichiren Daishonin wrote to Sennichi-Ama known as The Drum at the Gate of Thunder.Â

As the first lecture in some time, Jason talks about Buddhist study and goes into some depth on the background to this letter. He starts to explain some of the first passages and then, realizing he has run out of time, rather abruptly ends. Seriously, he has already started writing the next part! The podcast finishes with a wonderful song by the incredibly talented Jody Gnant, from the album Pivot, Great Day is one of Jasons all time favourite tracks! Check out her Jody’s website!

Thank you so much for listening, have a wonderful week!
