Queer Shangha at IDP

Queer Sangha serves the gay, lesbian, bisexual, straight and transgender community by offering Buddhist teachings and meditation practice in a safe and inclusive environment.

We are dedicated to providing you with a diverse and practical experience of the dharma by sharing it in a way that is accessible and relates to our modern day circumstances and unique social position as members of a sexual minority group.

Together we explore issues of queer identity, gender, LGBT civil rights, and how all of this relates to the dharma. Meetings involve meditation practice, dharma talks, experiential exercises, and social events. Both beginners and the Buddhist-curious are very welcome, as are experienced practitioners.

Formed in 2008, Queer Sangha (aka Open Sky) is now a part of IDP and is facilitated by its founder Lawrence Grecco, an ordained Zen priest in the Five Mountain Zen Order and dharma teacher authorized by the Interdependence Project.

$10 ($5 for IDP members) + optional dana/donations for the teacher.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
