Please Note: This retreat is offered online only. We invite you to try this creative form of practice as we take care of one another and respond skillfully to COVID-19.

All who self-identify as womxn are welcome!

This silent meditation retreat will offer myths, stories, and archetypes of Buddhist womxn, past and present, as inspiration to illuminate and embrace all aspects of our wisdom, compassion, and desire for freedom. We will weave diverse expressions of feminine energies and the innate ways womxn know and understand into the fabric of the retreat, community, and practice.

We will explore feminine and transfeminine archetypes including: Prajñāpāramitā, the mother of all Buddhas; Kālī, the divine protector; and Quan Yin and Avalokiteśvara, the one who hears the cries of the world. We will journey through the stories of womxn who surrounded the historical Buddha, and follow the feminine lineage of the Dharma through present-day Buddhist nuns, teachers, and practitioners across the cultural spectrum.

Our time together will include silent sitting and walking, meditation instruction, daily embodied movement, Dharma talks, meetings with teachers, and creative expression.

All are welcome! No one will be turned away for lack of funds as space allows. For more information, please email
