Insight OUT Refuge: LGBTQI Sangha & Allies
From the (Internalized) Closets to the (Intersectional) Streets
with Jay Michaelson
Monday, November 25th, 2019 | 6:30-8:30pm
This Insight Out LGBTQI Sangha evening sit is open to all.
Queer theorist Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick argued that “coming out” is not a one-time event, but takes place every day in countless interactions. Drawing on insights from his new book Enlightenment by Trial and Error, longtime insight, jhana, and mindfulness teacher Jay Michaelson will talk about how this phenomenon manifests in life and meditation, and how we can work with the insights of the closet to build bonds of solidarity with other targeted groups.
The meditation sit will be led by NYI Practice Leader Katherine Marx from 6:30-7:15pm, followed by a talk and Q&A given by Jay Michaelson at 7:15pm. The new book will be available for purchase.
