Catch up with our latest newsletter which has plenty to keep you inspired and connected - there's profiles of inspiring Buddhist women, we catch up with nuns in lockdown and we have a review of a book with a difference.
Sakyadhita International was formed in 1987 in Bodhgaya India under the patronage of HH the Dalai Lama. It seeks to build community to benefit Buddhist women and nuns, to reduce gender injustice and awaken women to their potential.
Every two years Sakyadhita International organises a conference where Buddhists- Sangha and laypeople - come together to share issues affecting Buddhist women and the wider society. The next Conference will be held in Borneo in December 2021.
The Australian branch was formed after the Indonesian Conference in 2015. It has national representation and is affiliated with Sakyadhita International.
We're delighted to announce that our next Webinar will feature Sharon Salzberg, who is a world-renowned teacher and author, and a central figure in the field of meditation. Save the
date: Sunday 14th March 11am AEDT. More details to come.
Sharon is the co-founder of the Insight Meditation Society and author of eleven books, including a classic on Loving Kindness and her most recent, called "Real Change' Mindfulness to heal ourselves and the world - particularly appropriate in this time of a world changing in the face of the Pandemic.
