LGBTQ Community Half-Day Retreat
Saturday September 16th  9:30-1:00

This half-day retreat is open for those in the LGBTQ who might be new to mindfulness and meditation, as well as those who have a longer meditation practice.
The day includes silent meditation, walking practice and short dharma talks.

We’ll explore the teachings of the Buddha in meditation practice and how to integrate mindfulness into our daily lives. We bring a queer perspective on Buddhist practice, viewing the Buddha’s teaching through our LGBTQ experiences to see how this can lead to greater freedom.

The class is offered on a dana/donation basis, the MCC is supported by the practice of shared generosity.
