The Queer Richmond Sangha (QRS) welcomes and serves people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual or otherwise gender or sexuality non-conforming. QRS offers a community for exploring topics of dharma and meditation from and for the
LGBTQIA+ perspective.

Rumi said: “Stay together, friends. Don’t scatter and sleep.
Our friendship is made of being awake.” Bell Hooks said: “Beloved community is formed not by the eradication of difference but by its affirmation.” And Larry Yang said: “Changing the demographics can provide a safer space
for marginalized communities.”

Let’s come together and explore spiritual growth through a felt sense of belonging.

Mindful movement and meditation
Introductions and check-ins
Short dharma talk

Closing metta

We will meet virtually until meeting in person is deemed safe.

Your email address will be shared with the facilitator of this program for purposes of communicating with you about the class.
