Two new episodes are now out at The New Books Network. The latest interview finishes off the Secular Buddhism series with a conversation with a rather fine gentleman, Australian Winton Higgins. But who is Mr Higgins you might ask, well he’s a Bruce for starters, that’s Aussie slang for man. Otherwise, I should inform you that he is a key figure in the Secular Buddhism movement and author of several books including Revamp: Writings on Secular Buddhism, and After Buddhism: a workbook. Winton has been a Buddhist practitioner since 1987, and teacher of insight meditation since 1995. A member of the Tuwhiri editorial board, he has contributed to the development of Secular Buddhism internationally and is a senior teacher for Sydney Insight Meditators.
He is an associate in international studies at the University of Technology Sydney and has been a board member of the Australian Institute of Holocaust and Genocide Studies since its inception in 2000, and teaches a course at the Aquinas Academy on various ethical, social and political topics each year.
Now you know, you can pop on a nice cup of tea, settle down in your cosiest armchair, and give it a whirl.

The second episode is a rather late audio-text from the series on Complex World, Complex Practice. I have written most of it and you’ve likely seen it here at the site, and hopefully enjoyed reading some of it. Each will become an audio-text with time.
