Next Meetup

Trans* & Genderqueer Mindfulness Deep Refuge Group at EBMC
Refuge for us means this group is led by Trans* and Gender Queer/Gender Variant facilitators, for people who identify as Trans* and/or Gender Queer/Gender Variant. Our goal is to provide a safe and welcoming space for all folks with these identities/experiences who are interested in practicing and exploring Insight/Vipassana meditation; the observation of one’s mental and physical sensations, in our moment-to-moment life experience. This group is for beginners as well as folks who have been practicing meditation for a while. Group core leaders are currently Abe Doherty, Fresh! White and Renè Rivera. We also intend on inviting guest leaders and teachers.

What we're about

Welcome to the Bay Are's first Trans* and GenderQueer Meditation Meetup.

Refuge for us means this group is Trans* and GQ/GV Lead for Trans* identified folks in our Bay Area Communities. Our goal is to provide a safe and welcoming space for all folks under the Trans* umbrella who are interested in practicing and exploring Insight/Vipassana meditation (the observation of your thoughts and body). This group is for beginners as well as folks who have been practicing for awhile. You're facilitator is Fresh! White. Fresh! is a student in Spirit Rock's Dharma Leadership Program and has been practicing seriously for over 5 years. For diversity, I will be inviting other T&GQ folks here from EBMC and other Center's to take the lead sometime. If you are interested, please get in touch with me directly.

It is my hope, and as expressed by some of the folks showing up already, to - together, deepen our mindfulness meditation practice, discuss some of the issues that may be up for us as Trans* & GQ Folks and build a mindful community.

Wishing you Love, Peace, Safety and Happiness,

Fresh!
