In a recent blog post, “Tired of hiding? Speak up,” I highlighted an exchange between two Tricycle Community Members. This was meant to demonstrate how tricycle.com and Tricycle the print magazine can effectively combine for community building. In his introductory letter to 20 Years, 20 Teachings: The Tricycle 20th Anniversary E-book, Editor & Publisher James Shaheen also writes about how moving online has helped foster a sense of community. He writes:
It is fitting that we deliver these teachings to you via e-book. In recent years, building community has become the focus of our efforts, and the Internet allows us to pursue this in a way never before available to us. Tens of thousands of our online members have joined us in discussions, special events, and retreats. We continue to grow, and we will continue to expand our menu of offerings.
We look forward to your participation in the coming decades. It’s your community and our pleasure to build it with you.
If you haven’t already, you can participate by downloading 20 Years, 20 Teachings: The Tricycle 20th Anniversary E-book. It’s free for all Tricycle Community Supporting and Sustaining Members. Read all of the good stuff in there and then let us know what you think of the articles.
Thank you for subscribing to Tricycle! As a nonprofit, we depend on readers like you to keep Buddhist teachings and practices widely available.
