This donation-based offering is a meditation sangha to give queer, transgender, intersex and/or genderfluid/non-binary people of color a space in which to find stillness, solitude, and community during a time when our lives (and particularly the lives of Black and indigenous people) are more overtly in the crosshairs of violence from multiple fronts. The meditation practice will incorporate space for people to share their struggles and their strategies for self-care and community care, and will facilitate relationship building among people seeking to define “healing” and “wellness” in a context in which true safety is not attainable. The circle will use a politic of radical love as a guiding force, and incorporate spiritual teachings from Buddhism, other religious traditions, and QTIPOC activists both living and dead.
Facilitators rotate on a weekly basis
By donation/dāna (no one turned away for lack of funds).
