Visiting Wellington from Sydney at the end of April 2017, Winton Higgins has a busy week ahead of him.
Noel Cheer interviewed Winton Higgins for his ‘In Conversation’ programme on FaceTV in February 2013 during Winton’s visit to New Zealand. They had both just arrived in Auckland from the Sea of Faith conference in Hastings. Well worth watching, you can see this on the video page.
If you weren’t able to make it to St Andrew’s on The Terrace in Wellington on Friday 15 February, you can watch Lloyd Geering and Winton Higgins’ conversation live in the comfort of your own home.
Making the Most of Being Human A weekend workshop led by Winton Higgins Secular Buddhism is an emerging movement that takes a fresh look at the core teachings the Buddha gave twenty-five centuries ago, and translates them into practices and terms that address westerners today. Although secular Buddhism has some affinity with Buddhist schools […]
This time it’s in Sydney and organised by Sydney Insight Meditators. Taking place on the weekend of 22 and 23 June, it will be at the Well-Aware-Ness Centre at 14 Ridge Street, North Sydney.
It will be wonderful to welcome Winton to Wellington one week from now. He’ll be in conversation with Lloyd Geering at St Andrew’s on The Terrace on the Friday evening and leading a secular Buddhist weekend workshop at 31 Hobson Crescent in Wellington which has the title ‘Making the Most of Being Human’.
Last month, I was invited to a Re~Collective online meeting, “…discussing the conversation that took place during the October 28th Sydney Insight Meditators meeting in which the focus was building, renewing and sustaining community.” I was able to review the SIM meeting minutes and a related article, Sanghas R Us, by Winton Higgins – and even to attend despite time zone confusion on my part.
The workshop Awakening Community which will be taking place in Sydney on November 12 & 13 will look at the contemporary relevance of Buddhist practice. The SIM newsletter editor spoke with Winton Higgins, one of the workshop teachers, to find out how he sees the relevance of the dharma in our current context.
So did you believe that secular Buddhism originated in the USA, or perhaps in the southwest of France where Stephen Batchelor writes his books? Winton Higgins, in a brand new article, proposes some German roots of secular Buddhism. Accepted for publication in the journal Buddhismus aktuell, immediately before publication date major changes were requested which couldn’t be made in time.
The title of Winton Higgins’ most recent dharma talk is likely to attract few beyond the curious: ‘The dharmic foundations of the recollective awareness approach’. Experienced meditators, especially those who find meditation can be a frustrating process (most of us, I suspect), will find it well worth the read, though.
