Event Details

Date: Sunday, November 17, 2019; 10:00am – 4:30pm
Sliding Scale: $40 – 108. Code FR3D19.

Prerequisite: This program is for the Trans community who may invite close ones to attend. We ask that allies only attend as a guest of a trans or gender expansive identified person.

During this month of Transgender Remembrance, we are also drawing closer to the holiday season. How do we hold ourselves compassionately during these times?

There will be guided and walking meditation, discussion, Q&A, and a community-building potluck lunch. Please bring food to share.

This day is for those new to meditation and longtime practitioners.

Led by Trans-identified teachers, and experienced practitioners, we are bringing together All-Gendered folks for an opportunity to explore and practice in support of implementing, complementing and/or expanding our practices with compassion, self-love, and self-care.

A kind reminder, please respect the container: no photography or video recording as always for Spirit Rock programs.
