Event Details

Do you have any idea of how important you are?!

Of how much impact your presence is influencing the very fabric of society and the whole of life itself?

 

LGBT folks have made significant contributions – not only through what we have done – but through something radically simple – our very being. Many of us have found that by listening to who we really are as gay people, and acting with integrity in our lives, others have become more open to sexual orientation diversity, same-gender marriage, and many other pretty fabulous things. And in the process, we can feel more authentic, connected, and whole.

 

Now, what if you paid even MORE attention to your being-ness? The possibilities become exponential.

 

Spiritual practices from around the globe tend to have two universal features: helping us concentrate, and helping us be present to the field of unconditional acceptance around us at all times.

 

In this teleconference, we'll reflect on the contributions we've made simply through our presence use mindfulness to build concentration, and our ability to be present to body, mind and heart. Learn practical tools you can use in daily life to feel more connected to yourself and others.

 

We’ll also also explore questions like:

  • What influence does the presence of your body, mind, and heart have on the world around you?
  • How have LGBT people influenced the world simply through our being?
  • How can we be even more present to our life experience, and what influence will that have on us and others?

 

Join us for this hour of dance between practice and discussion of something radically simple, and infinitely powerful: our presence.


About the Facilitator

Bob PileggiBob Pileggi facilitates our whole-hearted presence to the gifts of life and each other.  We can easily get caught in the world’s fast pace and drama, leading us to feel anxious, overwhelmed, disconnected or poorly about ourselves. Experiences with Bob foster our innate capacity to nurture our own ease of well-being - empowering self-awareness, authentic self-expression, and compassionate connection with others. Bob offers us the skills of mindfulness, meditation, and yoga to help us reclaim and fully experience life through our whole being - body, mind, heart, spirit and relationships.

 

Bob has facilitated numerous workshops, rituals and retreats. He brings to his work 20 years of experience with LGBT, HIV/AIDS and women's civil rights organizing and public education at local and national organizations. His photography, focusing on related topics, has been published nationally, including The New York Times.

 

In Bob’s 15 year journey of learning how to show up fully, gratefully and powerfully in this gift of life (while learning to navigate anxiety and body image issues), he has trained to become a facilitator, mindfulness instructor, spiritual practice coach, ordained interfaith minister, certified yoga instructor and breathwork practitioner, and licensed bodyworker.
