Group Description

The Gay Buddhist Fellowship exists to support Buddhist practice in the gay men's community. Our understanding of practice includes, but is not limited to, traditional Buddhist practices such as meditation and mindfulness, individual forms of practice, compassionate service in the community, and relationships with teachers and spiritual friends. GBF is a forum in which all of the distinct Buddhist traditions can be brought together to address the spiritual concerns of gay men.

We respect and care for each other in a compassionate way as an expression of the full realization of the Dharma. We recognize that every aspect of our lives is practice. We cultivate a social environment that is accepting, open, inclusive, and caring. We acknowledge and support the growing network of gay practitioners in the United States and around the world. In addition, we intend to create programs that contribute to the well being of the larger community.

Every Sunday at 10:30am we meditate together for 30 minutes, followed by a talk or discussion till 12 noon.
Everyone is then welcome to stay and socialize over refreshments till approximately 12:30, after which those
who are interested usually go somewhere local for lunch.

Our sittings are held at the San Francisco Buddhist Center, 37 Bartlett Street.
(Look for the red door near 21st St between Mission and Valencia Streets).
MUNI: 14 Mission or 49 Van Ness-Mission, alight at 21st St, walk 1/2 block.
BART: 24th and Mission, walk 3 1/2 blocks.
PARKING: on street (meters free on Sundays) or in adjacent New Mission Bartlett Garage.
The Center is handicapped accessible.
