Queer Dharma is a group for LGBTQ practitioners to study and practice meditation and Dharma and to discuss personal experiences. The group serves to send a message to new-comers that they are welcome in the Shambhala Buddhist tradition, and to explore (perhaps in ways that may be unintentionally overlooked or excluded in our regular programming) how we as gays, lesbians, bisexuals, trans and gender queer individuals can incorporate the teachings in our everyday lives and in our various social circles. We're scheduled to meet every first Sunday of the month 2-4pm.
Experience your mind as discovered through meditation - instruction is available to you. We practice mindfulness as a group - noticing what arises and constantly coming back to the present moment. We also practice generosity by bringing a small monetary donation (one or two dollars) to each meeting if possible. these funds help to keep the Shambhala Center, our host, operational.
Come as you are - no experience necessary and there are plenty of cushions and chairs.
Continue to socialize over dinner and drinks at Crush afterward!
