This guided meditation group creates a unique space for LGBTQ+ people to foster friendship and practice meditation.

About this event

The sessions will feature a variety of mindfulness, loving-kindness and wisdom meditations. There’ll also be sharing & connecting, poetry and more. Through this, we’ll cultivate a warm awareness of our own experience and go beyond the individual to explore how we can grow and flourish as a community. There’ll also be the option to socialise in the cafe area after.

We’ll run sessions most Sundays, so you can choose to come on a regular or drop-in basis.

No prior meditation experience required. Also suitable for those who are trying to establish a regular practice within a supportive environment.

Sessions are free, with an optional donation towards establishing a permanent LGBTQ+ community centre. Please note that we are unable to refund donations.

During this session, the cafe will be closed.
