QTIPOC Sangha & Meditation Special Event
with Third Root
75.00 minutes
“Without community, there is no liberation.” -Audre Lorde This donation-based offering is a weekly 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 artivists both living and dead. Ideally the group will rotate facilitators, but the space will be held and organized by Amita Swadhin.
