Los Angeles Women’s Group
Our intention is to be a regular gathering and a place of practice and friendship. We are offering this for women to support and get to know each other and build community. Join us for sitting and walking meditation, discussion and sharing. This group is open to all who self-identify as women and with any meditative experience. We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people who are significantly female-identified. Attenders only need to identify as women in a way that’s significant to them. You are welcome regardless of belief. Come rest the mind and heart in a guided meditation and share in community.
Facilitated by Eileen Ybarra.
Meets the second Saturday of every month at Melrose at 10am.
San Francisco Women’s Meditation Sangha
Since the time of the Buddha, women have been walking the path, committed to waking up. While their voices have not always been placed front and center, an unbroken thread– the sacred feminine– has woven itself into all corners of the Dharma since the first Buddhist nun, Maha Pajapati, firmly requested ordination from the Buddha. Join us for a monthly women’s sangha where we can share our practice, celebrate our feminine lineage, and create a space for inquiry, support, and exploration of what it means at this time to be a woman on the path. This group will be held as a practice circle, with co-facilitators holding space for practice and plenty of room for all to share their voices and wisdom. This group is open to all who self-identify as women.
Meets the last Thursday of the month at 5:30pm
