Please join us for a casual get together at a quiet inexpensive family run Chinese restaurant in Oakland. I can vouch for tofu and vegetable dish, the best I've ever had at a standard Chinese restaurant (lots of great veggies cooked just right.) But, it has lots of food for omnivores, too. The average cost is about $6.50 per person before gratuity and beverage.
I will look forward to hearing about your sangha, center, teacher and practices... and I think others will be interested, too. I think this is a good place to meet where we can hear each other. See you soon!
This first meetup will be an informal getting-to-know you lunch, where women can share more about what our backgrounds are in the Dharma, and discuss what we would like the group to be and do in the future. There will be and no teacher and no formal presentation, and you do not need to bring anything. All lesbians and bisexual women who are committed Buddhists are welcome. The benefit of this group is to gain support for our practice and study of the Dharma and make new friends and connections with lesbians and bi-women from other sanghas. The Meetup will end at 3 pm, and it’s okay to come late.
