Set up in 2018 by secular dharma practitioners in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand, The Tuwhiri Project is a dharma publishing imprint which produces educational resources for secular dharma practitioners and communities, helping people find meaning in a difficult world.
From November 2020 to February 2021 a Tuwhiri dharma book reading group will go through What is this? Ancient questions for modern minds by Martine and Stephen Batchelor together on Zoom.
Limited to 12 participants, the group will be anchored by Tuwhiri publisher and co-editor of Creative Dharma, a newsletter, Ramsey Margolis in Wellington, New Zealand, and Suzanne Franzway, a dharma practitioner and researcher in sociology in Adelaide, South Australia.
Coming together on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month, meetings are timed so that people from Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific can take part.
Those of you in the Americas are likely to be sleeping when this group meets, but do get in touch if you’d like to be part of a second dharma book reading group. With enough interest, a group will run at a different time of day to suit people in other time zones.
NZD $40 (approx. AUD $38 / 22 Euros / USD $24.50 / CAD $34 / GBP £20) is asked from those who take part; you can deposit NZD $40 through paypal.com for firstname.lastname@example.org using PayPal/VISA/Mastercard. In New Zealand, deposit NZD $40 directly into this Cooperative Bank account – 02-1246-0675192-054.
At the end of the course, participants will have the opportunity to offer dana to Martine and Stephen Batchelor.
