Transbuddhist Sit for trans, intersex, GNC, non-binary, and all gender-expansive people. People questioning their gender are welcome and encouraged to join too.
Saturday, January 20 at 2:30 PM – 4:30 PM
Dharma Den, 530 State St, Apt 2, Brooklyn, NY 11217
How can we create spaces that embrace our diverse humanity and are grounded in rich spiritual practice? What insights can we discover together, to bring into other Buddhist spaces and our daily lives? What challenges show up in meditation and community?
We will practice silent sitting and walking meditation, as well as sharing. Buddhists and non-Buddhists welcome, as well as all levels of meditation experience.
Please RSVP here
This will be a lightly facilitated peer-led event, with space held by J and Chance. We are generously hosted by Dharma Den, which is “a space kindly offered by a house of meditators who want to share their space with, basically, rad folks who wanna wake up.”
