Queer Conversation: Open
Jan 20 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Queer Conversation: Open

What does it mean to be queer? What are our unique gifts, struggles and triumphs as queer people? How does queerness impact how we show up in the world?

Queer Conversation is a weekly donation-based group, facilitated by a Queer Asterisk counseling intern. The conversation is fluid, arising from embodied, alive realities of queerness. Topics change weekly and may include anything from culture and family to sexuality and identity, to cultivating mindfulness in everyday life.

Together through conversation and shared presence, we seek to expand our awareness and sense of safety within ourselves, as people who resonate with queer experience. Join us anytime.

Queer Yoga
Jan 25 @ 9:00 am – 10:30 am
Queer Yoga

Queer Yoga is a dynamic space focused on exploring our mind-body connection through yogic practices. These practices originate from a variety of yogic traditions and have been tailored to the unique and varied experiences of the queer community. Whether you are hoping to deepen an existing practice within a queer-informed setting, have never done yoga before, or anything in between; Queer Yoga welcomes you. Though we will be building our practice over the course of several weeks, feel free to drop-in anytime, based on your needs. This is a unique opportunity to explore a deeply personal journey within a container of support and community. We hope to see you!
