Is a Cave Necessary? Inspiration from Buddhist Women

Mondays @ 7pm

Following from our course on inspiring Buddhist men, notably Akong Rinpoche, this course will look at the lives and teachings of inspiring Buddhist women. My cast of inspirational women Buddhists includes Tenzin Palmo, Ayya Khema, Martine Bachelor, Pema Chodron and Karen Armstrong (who has written about Buddhism amongst many other religious traditions). As is now the custom in the Monday sessions we meditate for 30-40 minutes, I read from an inspirational text, and we conclude with a lovingkindness visualization.
