Sex, Gender, Power: The Study Guide
Get your copy of the third volume of The System Stinks, where we investigate systemic sexual misconduct and paths to liberation from sexism and gender oppression.
What you’ll find inside:
An introduction that grapples with the paradox of gender essentialism, the tricky balance of holding both the form and emptiness of concepts like sex and gender. Sometimes it seems like identifying a shared “essence” (of women, or LGBTQ people, or transgender people) is foundational to solidarity in overcoming gender oppression. But does this shared essence really exist? How do we unite without oversimplifying difference, or glossing over power?
A beautiful and moving practice offering by East Bay Meditation Center teacher Mushim (Patricia) Ikeda, “Entering the Realm of Reality through Our Children”
A collection of Trans* Dharma resources by Susan Marine, reflecting Buddhism beyond the gender binary of female and male.
Unorthodox questions that we can study together, approaching dharma from a perspective rarely explored in mainstream meditation teachings.
