“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.” -feminist theologian and pastor 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. 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.
