PoC Meditation for Turbulent Times
One of our members, Malcolm, hosts a weekly meditation and is opening it up to GAPP members. This will be $15 suggested donation and location will be shared closer to the date. Here's what Malcolm has to say about meditation and its benefits for PoCs: Our media culture bombards us with an unending stream of human suffering. We are assaulted by a barrage of heartbreaking images of violence, misery and injustice. When the world is seen as threatening, our feelings of insecurity cause us to worry about all the things that undermine our wellbeing and stability. Fortunately, mediation offers time honored ways to restore an inner sense of harmony. In this ongoing class we explore new ways to work with the body, breath, thought and emotion to maintain balance in turbulent times. When we reorient our attention in specific ways, our inner resources become activated to face our difficulties artfully. Rather than destroying us or robing us of hope, turbulent times can teach us about living a world of unprecedented flux and disorientation.

What we're about

This group is for people of color who live and/or work in San Francisco and want to build a wider, more diverse community of peers. All bodies, genders and sexual orientations are welcome. We will host happy hours, networking/co-working events as well as "takeovers" in spaces where we don't see people who look like us, like yoga & fitness classes, restaurants and coffee shops.
