Lets Sit: LGBTQ+ Pride Mindfulness

(at Makom: Creative Downtown Judaism, 402 College Street)

Jun 02 2024, 4:30PM to 6:00PM in the Off - Site.
NOTE: This event has already occurred.

There are many ways to mark this month of Pride. Let’s begin the celebrations together, with this second annual community sit. This gathering will celebrate through connection in a warm, loving and playful environment. 

Join facilitator, Beth Tzedec Spiritual Leader and Artist-in-Residence and neySHEV Jewish Meditation Community founder Aviva Chernick, together with fellow community members for this opportunity to rest in loving attention through meditation, reflection and song in a Jewish Queer and Trans positive space. 

While we honour our allies, this particular event is for those who identify as part of the LBGTQ+ community. There will also be an opportunity to view the exhibition in the adjacent FENTSTER window gallery, by Meichen Waxer. 

Chairs, blankets and bolsters will be provided. No previous experience with meditation required. There will be snacks and schmoozing following the event, of course. 

Makom welcomes participants of all abilities. Makom's main space is wheelchair accessible, but the washroom is down a flight of stairs. There is a Starbucks with wheelchair accessible washrooms one block away. If you have an accessibility need or require any accommodations, please reach out to achernick@beth-tzedec.org

There is no charge but RSVPs are required. To register, click HERE.

Let's Sit is sponsored by the Beth Tzedec Centre for Spiritual Well-Being together with partners neySHEV, Makom, Annex Shul, FENTSTER and the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre.
