Seeking a deeper understanding of Buddhism? Design helps.

Julia’s talk is about our work on, an educational platform for everyone who is interested in Buddhism. Every day we face challenges; and how we react to these defines our overall state of mind. At we share Buddhist methods for dealing with everyday life – in a way that makes us happier, more balanced and more productive. Our challenge as designers here is to respect and transport Buddhist thinking for a modern audience.
