Active Allyship: Exploring Feminism through Contemplative Practice
How does contemplative practice intersect with issues of gender? This session will focus on applicable tools to hold both spirituality and feminist practice in your everyday life and will be led by Ouyporn Khuankaew, a Buddhist feminist activist and a workshop facilitator in Asia since 1995. She facilitates workshops on feminist counseling, sexuality and anti-oppression, peacebuilding, and nonviolent direct action with Thai NGO and government workers, and regional and international participants.
