Dhamma Friends: Undoing Patriarchy – 3rd Wednesday

The Undoing Patriarchy is a space where male-identified people who have a mindfulness practice can share experiences and come together to better understand the experience of being men. Using the lens of Dhamma, we’ll bring in resources like books and articles to see our familial and cultural conditioning more clearly (patriarchy, etc.). With mindfulness and meditation, we’ll practice meeting our experiences with kind awareness, allowing us to come into a healthier relationship with our maleness, and touching into greater freedom and love for ourselves and for all others. Meetings include both meditation and a dhamma talk/discussion.  

All male-identified people are welcome.

Please return to the calendar to join an online session or learn of any schedule updates.
