What we're about
Are you a queer woman and a buddhist practitioner, or interested in buddhism and meditation? Are you looking for friends and community?
QueerBuddhist Women is a group for queer, bi, trans, gay, lesbian women who are buddhist practitioners, or are interested in meditation and buddhism.
Find out about our events and sign up! We gather for meditation, teachings, films, outings, and to make friends and socialize. All members can schedule events. Please take a look at some of the things we have done in the past as a rough guide for creating your own event for other QBW members.
Background: This group originated in New York City with the women who attend the QueerDharma (http://queerdharma.org/) meditation group that meets on Sundays in Manhattan.
"Keep this teaching at the heart of your practice. Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, pause from time to time and relax your mind. You don't have to change anything about your experience. You can let thoughts and feelings come and go freely, and leave your senses wide open. Make friends with your experience and see if you can notice the spacious awareness that is with you all the time. Everything you ever wanted is right here in this present moment of awareness." Mingyur Rinpoche
