Please join us for our second EBMC QT2SPOC and all self-identified LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, “gender-expansive, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual+) Pride Day Long!
In this life, there is suffering – that’s at the core of the Buddha’s teachings. As members of queer communities, we see, and experience, this truth on a regular basis. And at the same time, there lives in us an inclination to reduce suffering, for ourselves and others, through mutual support, radical connection, nurturing, and healing.
We warmly invite all self-identified LGBTQIA+ siblings, (no prior meditation practice necessary,) for an opportunity to engage in an exploration of pride, resiliency, and solidarity. What do these things mean to each of us? What are their shadow sides? How do we live these things individually, and in community? Can we experience joy in the center of it all? – We’ll dig into these questions through silence/inner practice, community shares, music, mindful movement, and dancing with guidance and sharing from our QTPOC teaching team.
All levels of practitioners are welcome!
In preparation for the daylong, please consider preparing your lunch in advance. You might also want to have a beverage, snacks, and perhaps a pen and notebook nearby.
Registered participants will receive a link to join us via Zoom with their EventBrite confirmation email.
