Tell us about one exciting project, program, or other offering you are currently working on.
I coordinate an LGBTQIA+ project in my sangha based on the ZPO’s principles. The project was launched on July 28th, 2021, and serves as a safe space for the LGBT community to express their feelings and benefit from Buddhist practices. We are 20 practitioners to date. Our practice is based on the Three Tenets, The Way of Council and zazen, which underpin our discussions about LGBT issues. The project also facilitates professional assistance to people in need of medical and psychological care or legal advice. We intend to provide training in social engagement against violence in our community.
