Jerry has been attending the GBF since 2008. He was an ER doctor for over 20 years and now works in an urgent care setting. In between, he graduated from Pacifica Graduate Institute with a masters in counseling with an emphasis on depth psychology. His thesis looked at resilience among the generations of men who came out together following Stonewall. As an MFT, he has done individual counseling and led groups for HIV-positive men, bereavement and cancer support. Having had a life full of challenges and (mis)adventures, he will speak of his own resilience and how he views this as a part of his Buddhist path.
