October 17th, 2006

Some of you will know that recently we were invited to the BBC World Service to give an interview for a programme they produce called Heart & Soul. We have so far been treated with great respect and kindness by Caroline Donne and Dan Damon of the BBC. The programme is about religion and podcasting and will be broadcast this weekend of 21, 22, 23rd October.  It can be heard  on the programme’s web page (Heart and Soul) from midnight on Saturday 21st onwards. You can hear it on the radio in the UK on Sunday 22nd October on Medium Wave 648 KH, 0730 and 1730 GMT and on digital radio.

Also we submitted audio comments from Dash, Donna and Vittoria and we think they have taken snippets from A Buddhist Podcast to play on the show as well.

I confess to feeling a little anxious as you don’t know how these things will go until they’ve gone…and seeing as its gone being anxious about it won’t bring an editing suite et al!

South Downs District is a new and flourishing district of SGI-UK. It is situated on the South Downs of Sussex in the UK. The two main towns in the district are Haywards Heath and Burgess Hill.

On Wednesday 22nd November 2006, they will be having their first public lecture at the Burgess Hill Theatre Club (opposite St. John’s Church). Jason will be giving a short talk on The Human Revolution and the Youth Division members are going to give some personal experiences.

The district are getting together to chant to make this activity an incredible success. Please let us know if you would like more information on where it is. If you would like to come or want to bring a guest it would be great to see you!
