Mindful Self-Compassion, 8-Week Series Class at Spirit Rock
Weekly Series beginning 9/6, facilitated by Jane Baraz, MA and Linda Graham, MFT. An exploration into Mindful Self-Compassion, as developed by Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer, is a powerful 8-week training in empirically-supported that enables participants to respond to difficult moments in their lives with kindness, care, understanding and wise action. Practices in loving-kindness and compassion allow us to keep our hearts open in moments of struggle and suffering. Practices in mindfulness allow us to see our experiences and our reactions to our experiences (and to see ourselves as the experiencer) more clearly, discern options, and make wise choices.

What we're about

A social group for lesbians (or bi women, whatever) who are seriously committed to a traditional Buddhist path. The Bay Area is rich with wonderful Buddhist groups in virtually all traditions. While there may only be a few lesbians in any one group, presumably there would be a bunch of us if we all got together. Doesn't that sound nice? Just to hang out for lunch or perhaps discuss a book of mutual interest. This group is for women who are already established Buddhist practitioners, and feel very positive about the Dharma, not so much a place to learn about basic Buddhism or practice with others. Honk if you are a lesbian who loves the Buddha Dharma. Honk! Honk!
