Due to the ongoing risks surrounding the spread of COVID-19, this retreat will be taking place ONLINE.
This is the 2nd annual Creating Joy in Community Meditation Retreat for the Transgender, Gender Nonconforming, Genderqueer, and Non-binary communities. This 4 day online retreat will be a space, where the grounding of kindness and compassion will support the healing from day to day harms and legacies of injustice.
We will offer meditation, mindful movement and heart-centered practices. These practices will be offered in silence balanced with discussions and community-building group exercises that nurture radical connection, joy and resilience.
Begin Thursday, September 17th 7pm PT
End Sunday, September 20th Noon PT
(Stay tuned for a more detailed daily schedule that will be posted soon.)
