Mindful Transitions for the Transgender Community
November 3 @ 15:30 - 17:30 PST
An event every month that begins at 3:30pm on day First of the month, repeating until 31. December 2019
This is an opportunity for people who identify as transgender to practice meditation together, build community and explore the experience of transition.
Transition means something different for everyone and can involve a whole range of possible steps, including social, medical and legal changes. Whether you are just beginning your transition or if you began your transition decades ago, your experience is relevant and welcome.
This is an opportunity to be mindful of our inner sense of who we are, how we understand our gender, and how we wish to be seen. We will also explore ways to offer tenderness and compassion to ourselves, both for the ways we may have internalized transphobia and for the difficulty of living in a cis-normative world.
The format will include a lightly guided meditation, opportunities to share your experience of transition, both the challenges and the celebrations, in larger group discussion and/or in small groups.
All people under the trans umbrella are welcome to attend regardless of where you exist along the gender spectrum. This includes but not limited to people who identify as trans women, trans men, men and women of trans experience, non-binary, genderqueer, gender non-conforming, genderfluid and those who are questioning their gender identity.
Regardless of where you are in your gender journey, this is a place to let go and just be!
