About the event

This Insight meditation group is for those seeking to explore and engage with the liberatory principles of Buddhist teachings and philosophy.

You Can Sit With Us: STL Queer Sangha engages the concept of Spiritual Solidarity, or kalyana mitta, as author Kate Johnson, who is a multiracial meditation teacher, artist, and activist writes about in her book “Radical Friendship”:

“Kalyana mitta is the name for the quality of relationships between members of a community who are collectively committed to liberation.”

Together through Spiritual Solidarity we cultivate:

  • Refuge in our own innate Divinity & capacity for liberation.
  • Refuge in praxis, our own direct experience making the practices alive through active engagement.
  • Refuge in community solidarity, taking interdependence from transactional to reciprocal.

 Every 2nd Tuesday of the month 7-8:30pm. Facilitated by Certified Meditation Teacher and queer Dharma practitioner, Deanna Sophia Danger
