Refund and Event Policies

Perhaps one of the most challenging aspects of spiritual practice is the embracing of our sexuality and sexual expressions. Many of us have deeply internalized shame of our sexual selves. So much of our sexual selves is connected to the physical body. What we discover is a poignant fear of our own bodies as vessels of our sexual expression. How do we interrogate this shame through practices of mindfulness, lovingkindness, and self-compassion? Yet beyond that, how can we practice wisdom and make intelligent choices to enjoy our bodies and the bodies of others in ways that do not reproduce psychic harm for ourselves or others? Being “Spiritual” does not mean we give up sex or cruising our favorite apps like Tinder or Grindr. Nor do we have to depart from communities of transgressive sexual practices that for many of us have been liberating. What being a spiritual person means is that our choices and practices are rooted in love and compassion. This is an open, frank, and hopefully shame-free exploration of exploring the sexual divine.

The People of Color Sangha Practice Group meets every Friday 7-9pm.
