“Dharma Seed gathers, preserves, and freely shares recordings of teachers inspired by early Buddhism for the benefit of students, teachers, and dharma centers worldwide.
The talks and meditations available through the Dharma Seed website are largely, although not exclusively, teachings from the Western Insight Meditation tradition, as taught at centers like the Insight Meditation Society (IMS), Spirit Rock Meditation Center, Gaia House and New York Insight.
A growing number of teachers, retreat centers and local meditation groups across the US and around the world make their teachings available here. Over 30,000 talks and guided meditations are currently publicly available. These range from talks given last night at Spirit Rock to talks offered over 30 years ago during the early days of IMS.
Dharma Seed’s origins can be traced back to 1983 in IMS’s basement when Bill Hamilton, then a work retreatant, began making some recordings from the meditation hall teachings available on cassette tapes. Much has changed since then – the number of teachers and centers that we support has grown exponentially and all of our materials are now available through our website.”–https://www.dharmaseed.org/
“By combining algorithms and human curation, we salvage the most thoughtful intellectual output from the ever-mounting great pile of information — most of which is simply rubbish.
The result? An eclectic selection of the best new academic articles, essays, talks, podcasts, books, lectures, and more, produced for you, once a week.
Led by technology critic Evgeny Morozov, The Syllabus method combines algorithmic filtering, categorisation and systematic human curation – across six languages – to power our various syllabi.–https://www.the-syllabus.com/

“In this Webtoon, the story of Persephone and Hades is retold from a new perspective… modern day. This dramatic, somewhat addictive story involves two Greek gods, who meet by chance, and suddenly start questioning their feelings for each other. On top of that, this story features relationship struggles, looking for love, going to school for the first time, abusive situations, futures not chosen by the person it’s for, parties, and MUCH, MUCH more. I really think you will love this webtoon! For all those fans of the Kane Chronicles and the Percy Jackson and Hero of Olympus series. Or, basically anyone who has ever found any form of enjoyment out of fictional shipping and romantic fandoms will find a home in this story.”—”Lore Olympus.” Webtoon Wiki.
