About Rainbow Sangha Coffee Chats | LGBTQ+ Gathering
Rainbow Sangha Coffee Chats is a dedicated space for LGBTQ+ identified folks who are interested in meditation, Buddhist study and discussion about LGBTQ+ identity.
Our in-person gatherings for the Rainbow Sangha are a dedicated space for Queer identified or LGBTQ+ identified people who are studying Buddhism or are practicing Buddhists and are interested in sharing experiences with others as part of our affinity group at Jamyang.
Building off the momentum of our initial gatherings last year, this space seeks to affirm and uplift LGBTQ+ members of the Jamyang community. We are creating a place where people can see themselves reflected in the stories of their fellow students and practitioners, while unpacking the nuances of their lived experience in a conducive and supportive setting.
What can I expect?
A short silent mediation, followed by light-hearted conversation on various topics of Buddhist philosophy and practice in the Courtyard Cafe of Jamyang London Buddhist Centre.
The Rainbow Sangha is a dedicated space for Queer identified or LGBTQ+ identified people who are studying Buddhism or are practicing Buddhists. Our café chats are for discussion of Buddhism with no agenda, objectives or themes to discuss the Buddhist teachings and to share ideas and reflections in a fun, informal and friendly setting.
Is this for me?
All are welcome, whether experienced students or completely new to Buddhism.
This session is specifically for LGBTQ+ identified people. Whether you’ve come to our previous gatherings or are new to the community, you are welcome to join us!
How do I join?
We suggest saving your spot ahead of time to help the facilitator to organise the event.
These meetups take place at the Courtyard Cafe at Jamyang London Buddhist Centre.
