Very thought provoking talk by Rohan G.. it made me wonder if his "buddhify" mobile app would really revolutionise the awakening industry more than the 10 day retreats have over the years... :thinking:

I am currently involved in the development of a retreat center here in africa and his warning about "sustainability" comes in timely!

Have forwarded the talk to my fellow members. Thanks Mike! :thumbsup:
All beings like yourself are responsible for their own actions. Suffering or happiness is created through one's relationship to experience, not by experience itself. Although I wish only the best for you, I know that your happiness or unhappiness depends on your actions, not on my wishes for you.
May you not be caught in reactivity.

Thanks Wizi, there is certainly a lot of food for thought in that talk for anyone involved in any kind of organisation that may be affected by technological advances (educational institutions are another obvious area). As Rohan says, the music industry made a lot of mistakes that it would be prudent to learn from.
