    Queer Dharma is an open community of meditation practitioners led by and for LGBTQI (lesbian, gay bisexual, transgender, intersex) people and their friends. Join us for meditation practice followed by conversation. The vision of the Seattle Shambhala Center's Queer Dharma group is to cultivate a space that is open and safe for all gender identities and expressions, sexual orientations, and sexuality to connect through meditative and contemplative practice.

    Please note: There is no dedicated facilitator for this group. The space is open on 1st and 3rd Mondays at 7 PM for those who wish to practice together. Meditation and following conversation will be guided by the wisdom of the group. 

    Please join us. We look forward to seeing you!

    Further Information:

    The group is conducted in a safe, relaxed setting and has a friendly atmosphere.

    Location: Seattle Shambhala Center, 3107 E Harrison St, Seattle.
