On this Eve of Transgender Day of Remembrance, we will be offering guidance through the Buddhist practice of Metta. Led by Trans-identified teachers and experienced practitioners, we are bringing together All-Gendered folks for an opportunity to explore and practice meditation and movements in support of implementing, complementing and/or expanding our experiences with self-love and self-care.

During this day, we will have the opportunity to practice opening our hearts to ourselves through sitting, movement meditation and brief writing exercises.

In creating a safe space for all who identify under the Transgender umbrella, aka Beyond or Between the Binary, we request that all allies are accompanied by a Trans individual.

Our team of Trans* teachers, are offering this Daylong to those new to meditation and longtime practitioners. The scent-free space is wheelchair accessible throughout. Please arrive on time, as the class will begin promptly.

Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited income) are invited to attend this day for $20.
