Trans* and Gender Queer/Gender Variant Deep Refuge Group
Fourth Mondays at EBMC
(This is a bi-weekly group. Learn more below.)
Refuge for us means this group is led by Trans* and Gender Queer/Gender Variant facilitators, for people who identify as Trans* and/or Gender Queer/Gender Variant. Our goal is to provide a safe and welcoming space for all folks with these identities/experiences who are interested in practicing and exploring Insight/Vipassana meditation; the observation of one’s mental and physical sensations, in our moment-to-moment life experience. This group is for beginners as well as folks who have been practicing meditation for a while.
Group core leaders are currently Abe Doherty and Fresh! White. We also intend on inviting guest leaders and teachers.
Second Monday Meetings: In addition to meeting on the fourth Mondays at EBMC, we also meet on the second Mondays at an alternative space. You can learn more about these gatherings and other community events by visiting here: https://www.meetup.com/TGQMM-Trans-Genderqueer-Mindfulness-Meetup-Oakland/
*The asterisk on the term Trans(*) means everyone beyond the binary.
