Transcending: Gender and Trans Experiences in Buddhism
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Celebrate Pride Month with Songtsen Gampo and join us for our newest class! Transcending: Gender and Trans Experiences in Buddhism will meet on Tuesdays from 6:30pm-8:00pm, May 28 to July 2, on Zoom and in person at our Center in Lakewood. All are welcome!

This six-week course will explore connections between the teachings of the Dharma and what it means to be trans, genderqueer, and/or nonbinary. Ani Palmo Rybicki, ordained Buddhist nun and Director of Songtsen Gampo, will co-teach this class with Em Munson, a nonbinary LGBTQ+ educator and student of Buddhism. We will discuss excerpts from Transcending: Trans Buddhist Voices, in addition to practicing meditation together.

This course is open to everyone. Buddhist, non-Buddhist, LGBTQ+ or straight—all are welcome! The course will offer new perspectives and opportunities to learn from our teachers and fellow classmates as we journey toward a more understanding and compassionate world.
