Our NYC meditations are held at metaDEN in Bushwick/Ridgewood. The DEN is a bipoc-only space that highlights queer trans/gender non-conforming creatives of color. In their words, “We are a gathering place centered on the healing, joy, and growth of our qtpoc community.”

Large pink lotus blossoms appear on either side of the person who's meditating. Their shirt has a glowing gold heart on their chest, and there's a faint halo of light around their head. By Weiwei
