for LGBTQ2IA people of color
Join us at Reclaiming Your Energy on Thursday, July 19, at Miranda Kuo Gallery (136 Eldridge St, NYC).
Living in a busy society pushes us in so many different directions – but never towards the path of caring for ourselves. In order to practice self-care, it’s important to challenge those pressures and find ways to make space in your life for you.
During this evening together, we’ll explore how we use our time and energy using three different lenses. But don’t worry: this won’t feel like a math class! Guided meditations will help you tap into intuition to discern where your resources are going – and where else you can direct energy to align with your life purpose and goals.
Join us, and you’ll leave with a deeper understanding of how you are moving through the world and what actions can be shifted to bring about powerful change, both in your life and in the world at large. By finding ways to give energy back to ourselves, we’re not only dismantling the status quo, but also creating new possibilities of how to move through the world.
$10 suggested donation. Nobody turned away or shamed for lack of funds.
This event is in conjunction with FREE SPACE month-long programming. FREE SPACE is interested in what possibilities can emerge from granting the disempowered and disenfranchised a "Free Space" – to think, gather, and create.

Meditate with us once a month in the NYC area. We are now meeting at The Interdependence Project.
Our next one will be:
Friday, July 20
7 to 9 pm
The Interdependence Project is a secular space. We may refer to various spiritual teachings in our meditation group, but do not expect anyone to hold particular beliefs or to see the world in any one way.
Please note the bathrooms are NOT wheelchair-accessible. We apologize for this major inconvenience and are seeking information about an accessible restroom nearby. We ask that you do not wear scents to keep the space as scent-free as possible, although the building itself does not have such a policy.
QTPoC Meditation is always free to attend.
Consider contributing to Rest for Resistance to help us pay our meditation leaders. We are also in the process of creating guided meditations so you can rest in your vulnerability anywhere, anytime, with affirming mind-body awareness and metta (loving-kindness) practices.

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
