Mission Statement

The Free Women’s Collective is established under the auspices of the Universal Compassion Buddhist Congregation in order to serve the following purposes:

  1. To foster community, fellowship, and sisterhood among the women of the Congregation
  2. To encourage women’s voices in leadership within the Congregation
  3. To serve as a guide to maintaining a meaningful, daily practice of the Dharma in our lives as lay practitioners
  4. 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.
