Retreat Dharma Talks at Spirit Rock Meditation Center

Spirit Rock - Rainbow Sangha

The Rainbow Sangha is a weekly gathering of self-identified practitioners within marginalized gender and sexuality groups such as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, two-spirit, gender non-conforming, and same-gender loving. Together, we’ll explore the Dharma in ways that welcome our lived experiences and build community that honors our diverse voices.

Program includes meditation, a dharma talk, and a practice-oriented discussion.

All levels of meditation experience welcome!
