Karuna Live: Shedding Shame: Growing Compassion for Sexuality and Gender
With Miriam Hall
Saturday, May 27, 2023, from 10 - 11 am Mountain Time
FREE - ONLINE
Why is it that shame arises so quickly for so many when we discuss gender or sexuality? Though there is nothing inherently shameful about either, systemic patriarchy has been rearing its ugly head with extra force recently, aggravating individual and social shame.
Is there wisdom hiding under that shame? If so, how can we shed the shame and grow the wisdom?
In this experiential event, we will spend an hour gently opening up to the shame we each carry around sexuality and gender (regardless of our sexuality or gender) and begin to nurture the wisdom under our worries.
Miriam Hall is a cisgender queer white woman who is the lead teacher at Herspiral Contemplative Arts
(www.herspiral.com) and co-director of Nalanda Miksang Contemplative Photography (www.miksang.org), as well as a senior teacher of Nalanda Miksang.
She is a meditation instructor, an authorized Maitri Space Awareness teacher, and a creativity coach. Her work focuses on the intersection of compassion and perception and unapologetically regards all liberation as inherently tied to social justice. She was a member of the first North American cohort of Karuna Training, both basic and graduate, and has been on the faculty since 2017.
