The Free Women’s Collective is established under the auspices of the Universal Compassion Buddhist Congregation in order to serve the following purposes:
- To foster community, fellowship, and sisterhood among the women of the Congregation
- To encourage women’s voices in leadership within the Congregation
- To serve as a guide to maintaining a meaningful, daily practice of the Dharma in our lives as lay practitioners
- To build a stable and enduring organization within our Sangha that can help support the long term continuation and flourishing of the Sangha.
The FWC currently has three major projects :
- The Bookclub
- The Writers’ Group
- The Care Team
We hope you’ll visit one or more of our groups and see it’s a good fit for you.
