Queer Dharma

CURRENTLY POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR MORE DETAILS. If you’re interested in assisting with supporting Queer Dharma, please reach out to director@seattleshambhala.org. 

Meets twice a month, 1st and 3rd Mondays at 7 PM

Queer Dharma is a meditation group led by and for the queer community and their friends. Join us for open meditation practice followed by conversation.

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.

The aspiration of the Shambhala Meditation Center of Seattle’s Queer Dharma group is to create a safe and welcoming space for queer people of all genders and sexualities to meditate in community and share their experiences authentically. We aim to engage with the queer community through meditation, to support and enrich ourselves and our community.

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