For women and LGBTIQA+ finding a place to ordain and stay as a lay person or monastic, where they can learn and study, is often a huge challenge, especially in the Tibetan tradition. Ayya Yeshe started a unique project to create a monastery where the four-fold community can stay and learn, aiming for environmental justice, to aid marginalized communities, intersectional feminism that includes and welcomes men who wish to be allies and compatriots of women. Much still needs to be done! If you want to support Ayya Yeshe please consider donating:
