We invite our QPOC community members to join us for this meditation on spiritual wellness.

Radical simply means 'grasping things at the root'. — Angela Davis

Breathe, relax, and root down! Join us for a combination of guided meditation, body listening, and breath work with healing oils. We'll reconnect with the ground beneath our feet. Get rooted in our bodies. Connect with ancestor wisdom. If you could use some grounding, this circle is for you. Take away tools for everyday grounding plus a playlist.

To maintain a trauma-informed + intentional space, doors will close at 6:30 PM.

Feel free to bring an item for the altar that helps you feel grounded (you can take it home with you). No meditation experience necessary.

What to expect + wear:
We're decolonizing meditation! Inspired by old ways, you can expect stillness and drumming. You can expect awareness of the trauma and joy we can carry in our bodies as people of color. Wear clothing that's relaxing for you and allows for some gentle, small movements to open up our bodies.
