Sallie Jiko Tisdale: Women in Buddhism

February 17, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Hybrid Hybrid Event

We meet to share the embodied female experience in our lives and practice. This includes the stories of Buddhist women from the past as well as the women we know today. There are many qualities to this experience: joy, bitterness, transformation, silence, frustration, celebration. This workshop is for people of any and all gender identities. We all carry an aspect of the feminine and Dharma sees gender as completely empty. But we will focus specifically on the embodied female in our relative experience, and how we as women have been both seen and unseen in Buddhist practice.

This event will be in person at the Portland Center as well as on Zoom. The recording will be available for all who register.
