BIPOC Embodied Refuge, a sangha (community) for those who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, facilitated by Lissa Edmond and Guests, meets on Sundays 10-11:30a ET online via zoom. Closed Captioning available.

These gatherings are intended to support studying the dharma together alongside healing collective and intergenerational race-and oppression-based trauma via the body and in community as well as cultivating communal and intergenerational resilience and reclamation.

The meetings will begin with a guided meditation and will also include embodied practices, dharma reflections, check-ins, and song. Space will be held for all that’s present in a way that supports a trauma-responsive approach, self and collective care, and community and connection.

This week’s topic:

How do nature-based practices support us in practicing and understanding the dharma?  How do we connect to the natural elements while living in an urban environment? What is our relationship with our ancestors and how do we connect to them? We will explore nature-based practices and our relationships with ancestors this morning.  These practices could help us connect to a larger presence that we inherently belong to.  

No prior meditation experience necessary.
