Queer Dharma

Meets twice a month, $10 suggested donation

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 join us. We look forward to seeing you!

Further Information:
We offer brief instruction to those new to meditation, which is beneficial for both beginners and the experienced. No prior meditation experience is required. The group is conducted in a safe, relaxed setting and has a friendly atmosphere.

Before attending this group please check the weekly calendar for any cancellations or rescheduling.


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