Wise Livelihood for the BIPOC Community

As we gather in beloved community, we will meditate, rejoice, relate, and explore the Buddhist teachings of wise livelihood and how we can apply these teachings to the act of living fully with peace, abundance, and freedom. Wise livelihood is one of the factors of the Noble Eightfold Path, and these teachings can profoundly transform our lives and the ways we relate to our work, ourselves, our interpersonal relationships, and to the world at large.

Pride: A Celebration of Wondrous Endurance Beyond Survival and Tolerance

Open to all self-identified LGBTQIA+. The important work of the "rainbow" (or LGBTQIA2S+) community is to abandon the shadows reserved for outlaws and outcasts. During our time together, we will bring mindfulness to our capacity and courage to step out of silhouette and we will collectively acknowledge the special gift of nonconformity that we offer to the world. Join this “celebration of endurance” as we uplift our rainbow community and share in the liberatory practices of the Dhamma.
