BIPOC Embodied Refuge Community

BIPOC Embodied Refuge, a sangha (community) for those who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, meets on Sundays 10-11:30a EST online via zoom.

These gatherings are intended to support healing collective and intergenerational trauma alongside cultivating communal and intergenerational resilience and reclamation utilizing My Grandmother’s Hands and other guides. Please sign up here if you would like to be added to the mailing list for this community.

Our meetings are held utilizing the framework of Buddhist principles as an opportunity to find nourishment in community and the dharma. 

Space will be held for all that’s present in a way that supports a trauma-responsive approach, self and collective care, and community and connection. 

The meetings will begin with a guided meditation and will also include experiential exercises, dharma reflections, check in and discussion, and song. Our meetings are facilitated by Lissa and guests. 

Donations are greatly appreciated to support our facilitators and can be sent to @embodiedheartmind via venmo or paypal. Our sangha is freely offered and no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

The Buddha taught that everything we need to awaken is right here in the body. Right here. How blessed that we can be with this dear teacher and friend in sangha? ~ Lissa
