Meditation as a Tool for Collective Liberation for LGBTQ Minorities
For pride month, Unapologetic Yoga offers you a non-mixed space, where LGBTQ+ folx from minority and marginalised ethnic groups can come together and collectively be sensitive to our traumas. Being able to resource ourselves, to have resources that we can apply to our lives, is a crucial skill and one that is especially needed among marginalised people. It is my belief that we can work together, across divisions, to take steps towards our collective liberation.
We will explore techniques in meditation and how they relate to our collective consciousness and identity. This practice is trauma-informed, gentle, and conducted with respect for every person partaking of it. There is no need for prior experience. You can join from a mat, a chair or in bed. In our time together, there will be a workshop-style short lecture, a gentle movement practice, guided meditation, space to reflect and journal, as well as ways to come into community with each other. It is my goal that you will leave with resources and tools that you will be able to use on a daily basis. Together, I hope we can resource ourselves to aid our collective liberation.
If you feel meditation isn’t for you, or if you have felt excluded from a yoga or meditation space that was supposed to be welcoming, I hear you. I see you. And I invite you to consider this space and whether or not it resonates with you.
This session is pay-what-you-can, and no one will be turned away for lack of funds. It will be conducted online via Google Hangouts, and you will receive the link to the class one day before.
