This group meets in a hybrid format on the 1st Tuesday of each month from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. Eastern. Community members may join virtually (via Zoom) or in-person (at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center.) We'll have technology that allows for people online and in-person to interact easily. Live closed captioning is provided. For Zoom access, email [email protected].
“Our spirit is what animates or quickens us. It is what makes us alive. Spirituality is the practice of staying consciously connected with what makes us alive.” - Mona West
Welcome to Breathe, an affirming space based on a shared thirst for community and connection, located at the intersection of queerness and spirituality. Yes, bring your past (tradition or no tradition), your practices (smells, bells, spells), your truth (as you name it or choose not to name it), and your questions. Let’s build a community centered on exploring fulfilling ways to empower each other’s inner strength and peace.
