Dharma Queers & Allies

On alternate Sundays we hold a study group that is open to all people, regardless of gender identity.

Because the study builds on itself over time, the group is best suited to people who are committed to coming every week. If you are interested in joining speak to an Order Member or email the centre for more information.

Programme

Faith, Symbols and the Imagination

In this module we will be entering a very different world from the everyday realm of our commonsense ideas and our surface sensory experience of the world. We will be exploring the world of śraddhā, imagination, archetypal symbols, and myth – related topics that open up a deeper vision of reality, and a different approach to our search for truth and meaning.
