About this course

Mr Chance Krempasky and Upāsikā tree are the guest stars for our February 2019 Resource Round Up

We’ll talk with Chance about the “Developing Trans*Competence: A Guide for Meditation and Retreat Centers” resource he developed with the team from trans*buddhists. Upāsikā tree will join in with further reflections on inclusion from her experience. The session will be recorded and available for you to keep as a reference in the future.

We’ll hear how this free PDF resource came to be as well as how it can be used in your local context. You’ll be able to ask any questions you might have and also find out more about what trans*buddhists are working on now.
