Tricycle: The Buddhist ReviewNing Network Spotlight
Tricycle is the leading English-language journal of Buddhism. Their new social network, Tricycle Community, is a place to discuss all things Buddhism, from beginner meditation tips to staying centered while raising children to Zen art. Members can even pose questions to Tricycle’s teachers in the forum.
The Tricycle Community is currently running The Big Sit, an event in which members pledge to sit in formal meditation for 20 minutes a day for 90 days. The social network has tons of great resources for Big Sit participants, from weekly videos and podcasts to a brief description of the precepts practiced during the Big Sit. Even Tricycle Community’s default avatar, an outline of the Buddha meditating, fits in with the theme.
