Queer theorist Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick argued that “coming out” is not a one-time event, but takes place every day in countless interactions. Drawing on insights from his new book Enlightenment by Trial and Error, longtime insight, jhana, and mindfulness teacher Jay Michaelson will talk about how this phenomenon manifests in life and meditation, and how we can work with the insights of the closet to build bonds of solidarity with other targeted groups.
