Since the 1980s, Western convert Buddhist communities have been the site of repeated cases of sexual violation and abuse. Cutting across Buddhist lineages, offenders have included many prominent first and second generation Asian and American teachers. This presentation will consider how practitioners are combining Buddhist and non-Buddhist frameworks to understand and respond to these crises. It will identify emerging forms of Buddhist community, leadership, and practice that have been generated in the wake of abuse.
