Please join us for this upcoming free meditation event for the queer community!
Gender and the Absolute & Relative Truths: Buddhist Philosophy for the Gender Creative.
Buddhism teaches the absolute truth of things as they are, and the relative truth of how things appear. Gender is likewise a construct at the playful intersection of emptiness and reality, groundless display. By bringing our practice mind to our gender position, we can clarify our identities and discover new ways of being human. Please join us for a meditation followed by a dharma talk and discussion.
