  • The World Without Us: An interview with Alan Weisman Paid Member

    If you haven't yet downloaded our 20th anniversary e-book, 20 Years, 20 Teachings, there's still time. It's free to Tricycle Supporting and Sustaining Members. In it you will find many of our most popular writers from the past two decades. Most of the featured articles are from Buddhist teachers, but not all. Award-winning environmental journalist Alan Weisman makes an appearance in our e-book. In an interview with Clark Strand, titled after his best selling book, The World Without Us, Weisman speaks about global warming, population control, and what the world would look like without humans.

  • Tired of hiding? Speak up. Paid Member

    It used to be that, after each issue of Tricycle hit newsstands, we'd receive a great deal of feedback and comments from readers in the form of letters to the editor. Some of these letters would then be published in the following issue. Since the rise of the Tricycle Community online, however, we don't receive as many LTEs as we used to. On tricycle.com, readers can simply leave comments directly on the articles themselves. Due to this change, the "Letters to the Editor" section of every issue is now comprised of both traditional LTEs (snail mail and e-mail) and comments left on tricycle.com. More »
