Often the spiritual teachings that guide us are presented in ways that reflect the dominance of men in our society and do not take into account women’s experiences. Host, Marlena Willis, talks with Buddhist teacher, Pamela Weiss, about her new book, A Bigger Sky, Awakening a Fierce Feminine Buddhism which weaves memoir with stories of early Buddhist women seeking to be included in the Buddha’s community.
