Event description

Description

Religion and spirituality are loaded topics for a lot of trans and queer folks. For many of us, church or other religious communities were our first sense of community and belonging. But often there is conflict between one’s queer and/or trans identity and the religion they were brought up in or have been a part of.

Living in a society that has used religion to condemn queer and trans folks is traumatizing in and of itself, and many of us have had our own experiences with being excommunicated, kicked out, or told there was no room for us in our religious or spiritual communities.

Because of who we are.

Many of the messages we received were stronger than that.

Maybe we lost family. Maybe we lost faith. Maybe we lost any relationship with god, the Divine, Spirit, the Universe, or whatever you choose to call it.

Many of us are searching for that sense of community and belonging we once had.
Many of us are searching for that connection to the Divine we once felt.
Many of us are searching.

Although more and more churches have open and affirming congregations, churches and other formal religious communities and structures can feel like threatening and unsafe places to be. But that doesn’t mean the yearning for spirituality and a relationship with god doesn’t still exist.

Join other queer and trans folks for this 2-day weekend intensive where we will explore our spirituality, including our relationship with ourselves, community, and the Divine.

In this 2-day weekend intensive, we’ll:
- Explore our relationship with spirituality and religion: the good, the bad, and the ugly
- Reflect on our relationship with ourselves around spirituality and personal growth
- Reflect on our relationship with the Divine, god, the Universe, etc.
- Identify ways we’d like to grow our spiritual practice
- Examine any blocks or barriers to our spiritual practice
- Connect with other queer and trans folks exploring their spirituality

Elements of the course include:
- A pre-workshop meditation sent to you via email
- Writing and journaling
- Self-reflection
- Small group discussion
- Ongoing meditations throughout the weekend
- Coming up with grounding rituals to use after the course is over
- Activities and worksheets to help explore and process topics

This workshop is for you if you:
- Have struggled to find a spiritual community or space where all of your identities are seen and held
- Are yearning for a connection with something larger than yourself, even if that is community
- Don’t have a spiritual practice but want one
- Want a stronger spiritual practice
- Want to share space with like-minded and like-hearted seekers
- Folks at all levels of spiritual practice and knowledge welcome.

Only prerequisites are that you’re curious, open, and willing to try something new.

Please bring a notebook and something to write with.
