A Retreat for the LGBTQI Gender-Fluid Community

This retreat is now in progress.

Retreat Description:
How do we open to the challenges and uncertainties of our lives and the worlds we live in without being imprisoned in hatred, passivity or grief. The Buddha’s teaching of liberation offers us a practice to build the capacities of faith, kindness and wisdom and to orient towards building peace.

In the blessings of our queer community, we will explore ourselves through guided meditations, dharma talks, and group and individual inquiry.

Spirit Rock extends a special invitation to young adults (age 18-26) who wish to attend this retreat at a rate of $35 per night, on a first come, first serve basis. A limited number of special rates are available, please apply early.
