Dharma Teaching Travels

$950 of $4,500 goal

Raised by 14 people in 3 months
I am traveling back to Brooklyn to teach on November 1-6 and would like to get to Belfast, Northern Ireland again.  I haven't been back there in several years and I would really like a chance to do more there.  I have already spent $450 for the tickets to Brooklyn trip.  I still have to pay about $75 for Megabus (no car rental this time).  Tickets to Belfast are about $2000 or more.

The funds raised will cover my expenses and livelihood while traveling.

I just got back from teaching “Decolonizing Sexuality” in Brooklyn. I also am invited to a conference in April addressing Sexual misconduct in Buddhism. This gathering of those of us working to address issues of abuse, harassment, racism and patriarchy at The Garrison Institute is going to be important, and I need to be able to pay for it. Please help me gather the funds needed for this and more teaching opportunities.

So we are slightly over 10% of the goal in 7 days.

I believe that the Buddha set up the system of the monks relying on the lay community for support as a way to hold the monks accountable. If you weren't doing work that the community was nourished by, and/or your virtue and practice wasn't worthy of the support, they wouldn't support you.

I am considering this as I look at this campaign. Am I living in accord with my vows, and am I doing work that matters to the community? Maybe not. Maybe it's time to change course. I am not making choices about anything quite yet; and I think it is important to constantly stay close to these questions.
