Podcast: Reflections on 21st Century Dharma with Ethan Nichtern, Julia May Jonas and The Buddhist Geeks

posted by Patrick Groneman

BgIDP_Crossover.jpgOne City Bloggers Ethan Nichtern and Julia May Jonas recently teamed up with Buddhist Geeks Vince Horn and Ryan Oelke to discuss the state of the Dharma in the 21st Century.   Some of you may remember Vince’s guest post on this blog Secularizing Buddhism–Making it Accessible or Stripping its Roots stirred up a strong response.

Listen up to hear a great discussion about how Dharma is changing in the West, what challenges we face in the future, the
economics of dharma, and the implications of a generation who are so
interconnected with technology and culture.

Agreed, really interesting conversation, touched on a lot of good points about generational differences, the possible coming deficit of Buddhist teachers that’s happening alongside surging popularity in the dharma, and other neat stuff. Definitely worth the listen.

Mixing technology and practice
There were many more good sessions at the Wisdom 2.0 conference this weekend. The intention of the organizers is to post videos. I'll let you know when. Here are some of my notes from a second panel. How do we use modern, social media technologies — such as this blog — to both further o

Wisdom 2.0
If a zen master were sitting next to the chief technical officer of Twitter, what would they talk about? That sounds like a hypothetical overheared at a bar in San Francisco. But this weekend I saw the very thing at Soren Gordhamer's Wisdom 2.0 conference — named after his book of the same nam
