Our meditation is for Liberation! Join Queer Black Magik Conjurer, ChE, in this yoga & mindfulness sangha for Queer, Trans, Gender Non-Conforming, Non-binary People-of-Color. POC kin welcome. This contemplative practice circle alternates weekly between meditation and yoga asana. On meditation weeks, we gather to untangle the knot of internalized oppression, touching the silent soul-full place within where we are already Whole. Alternate weeks offer an opportunity to embody this medicine through instruction in Mysore Ashtanga inspired Vinyasa Yoga. All offerings are facilitated through an intersectional justice frame weaving Afro-Indigenous ritual, freedom song ciphers, and Queer Black Feminist scripture. Together we root in ancestral wisdom, so we can rise in our individual and collective Freedom!
