The LGBTQIA+ group meets the 2nd Saturday of every month, 4-6 p.m. Please keep an eye on the website calendar for monthly readings and updates.

The IMCW LGBTQIA+ Sangha aspires to:

  • explore our LGBTQIA+ identities in the light of the Buddhist dharma, across multiple and intersecting lines of difference that include, but are not limited to: sexuality, gender, race, ethnicity, socio-economic class, age, and dis/abilities.
  • provide a safe and intimate space where LGBTQIAs can deepen the practice of meditation and mindful dialogue.
  • study the dharma from diverse perspectives and to inspire insightful discussion.
  • cultivate a sense of belonging and community both within the LGBTQIA+ sangha and the larger IMCW sangha.

Format

  • 30-minute sit/walking meditation
  • Welcome/Introductions/Check-ins
  • Short dharma talk
  • Mindful discussion
  • Dedication of Merit/Closing/Announcements
  • Optional dinner at a local restaurant after meeting
