Women Living the Dharma Conference


Dear Friends in the Dharma,


The Buddhist Council of the Midwest and DePaul University are
co-sponsoring a Buddhist Women's Conference o! n March 11, 2006 at the
De Paul University Student Center, 2250 N. Sheffield, Chicago IL 60614.


The Buddhist Women's Conference, the first of its kind in the Midwest,
offers an opportunity for Buddhists women of all traditions, both lay
and ordained, to look at their lives as women in the context of the
Dharma, share their experiences and cultures, and further deepen their
spiritual lives. Anyone who is interested in learning more about women
and Buddhism is welcome to attend. 



Rita Gross, Ph.D., author of Buddhism after Patriarchy: A Feminist
History, and Professor Emeritus of Religion at the University of
Wisconsin Eau Claire, will deliver the keynote speech. In addition,
three fully ordained women from the different Buddhist traditions will
join together in a special plenary session to discuss Buddhist women and
spiritual practice in the 21st century. They are Venerable Sudhamma
Bhikkhuni (Theravada), Abbess of the Carolina Buddhist Vihara,
Greenville, SC, Reverend Kyoki Roberts (Mahayana) of the Zen Center of
Pittsburgh and the Board of Soto Zen, and Khenmo Nyima Drolma
(Vajrayana), Abbess of the Vajra Dakini Nunnery, Bristol, VT. Buddhist
authors, nuns, priests, and lay practitioners will offer a variety of
workshops and discussion groups.
