Refund and Event Policies

This group is on hold until further notice. 


The OC BIPOC & AAPI Mindfulness Group is a community where all ‘self-identified’ black, Indigenous, Asian American Pacific Islanders and people of color are invited to practice in a safe, welcoming space.

Every 1st and 3rd Wednesday, we will gather to meditate and share teachings on love, wisdom, and liberation. 

Our practice is strengthened when we meditate in community. Let’s sit together, breathe together, and share what brings each of us into presence.

There will be a meditation with some guidance, followed by a short talk and dialogue. 

No prior meditation experience is necessary. 

Attendees will have optional time for connection from 8:30-9pm after the formal session finishes.

Allies are also welcome.
