Events Calendar 2001


Women-led retreats and teachings

Some of the following listings are taken from Barry Kapke's DharmaNet Buddhist Calendar, still the most comprehensive listing of events and teachings I have found on the Web.   Check there for additional events which are co-led by both women and men.

If you are aware of other women-led or women-only teachings that I have missed, please submit your information using our online form.   I am especially keen to add events outside the United States (i.e. Canada, Europe, and the rest of the world).  Thanks!  (I also recommend that you submit your details to the DharmaNet Calendar via their online form or by e-mail to calendar@dharmanet.org.)
