Urthona is a unique magazine which explores the world of art and culture from a Buddhist perspective. Published annually, each glossy, 64 page issue contains in depth essays, poetry, reviews and expansive colour features on artists with spiritual values. Each issue has a theme reflecting the need for the arts to foster a contemporary yet mythically resonant, ecological vision of the world.

Current issue, no 26, on theme of Landscapes of the Mind has features on scottish poet of Myth and Landscape, John Burnside, Ginsberg and John Cage as pioneers of a new Renaissance, new Translations of Rilke by Peter Abbs and lanscape paintings by the wonderful scottish colourist Joan Eardley.

Planned themes for the future issues of Urthona include ‘Buddhism, art and ecology’, ‘myth and imagination in the city’, ‘beyond post-modernism’, ‘landscape and the Spirit of Place’.

Contributors to Urthona include Gary Snyder on wilderness and Zen, Robert Bly on poetry and society, Kathleen Raine on art and imagination, nature writer Robert MacFarlane on literature and landscape, Grevel Lindop on paganism, Anne Skea on Ted Hughes as modern Bard, Kenneth White on Geo-poetics.

Each issue features 10 pages of new poetry, full colour arts features and reviews of novels, poetry, photography, non-fiction and music. There is a substantial editorial, plus comment, analysis and thoughtful essays on a wide variety of cultural issues.

Our values are Buddhist in as much as we see the arts as means to revive our culture in ways that go beyond the all pervasive materialism and nihilism of the age but equally to avoid fixed systems of ultimate explanation. We often feature poetry, art and imaginative literature by Buddhists past and present. We also have a huge range of contributions from artists and writers of many different backgrounds who are seeking to renew the imaginal in contemporary culture.
