If you have a copy of our May 2009 issue, you know that in it, Joan Sutherland reviews A Garland of Feminist Reflections: Forty Years of Religious Exploration, the new anthology of writings by Buddhist and feminist icon and scholar, Rita M. Gross. Well, I’m thrilled to let you know that Rita recently joined me for a talk in which she discussed her work, what she might do next, and what we each can do to make sure that the dharma is more inclusive of women, more harmonious, and that “when the rubber meets the road” in our practice, we’ve got a firmer grip on the wheel.
PLUS: in the following Shambhala Sun Audio clip, Rita sets the most welcoming of tones for a Q&A about Buddhism, women, and gender here on SunSpace. Just click the player below to listen:
To communicate with Rita, just leave a comment here. She’ll be responding to questions ongoingly for the next few days.
Thanks, as always, for listening to Shambhala Sun Audio.
