Come together in queer community for practices for mindfulness meditation, breath work, chanting and sound healing.
You are invited to gather with us for our monthly Meditation Circles to support & comfort your mind, heart & spirit.
Come together in queer community to be guided in short mindfulness-meditation, breath work and chanting practices. These practices will help to calm your mind and cultivate inner peace.
Our meditation circles are held online via Zoom.
We gather on the first Saturday of each month @ 9:30am PST / 12pm EST for 50-minutes.
Each month TanyaMarck & Nick will create a custom practice for the group. The themes may follow the seasons of the year, the phases of the moon and stars, or a particular spiritual practice or chant. Below is more information about some of the practices you may experience.
Mindfulness & guided meditation:
Mindfulness is a type of meditation in which you focus on being intensely aware of what you’re sensing and feeling in the moment, without interpretation or judgment. Practicing mindfulness involves breathing methods, guided imagery, and other practices to relax the body and mind and help reduce stress.
Breathwork is the mindful connection to your body + systems along with your inhale and exhale, a concept descended from the ancient practice Pranyayama, a Sanskrit word which has been translated as ‘extension of the life force’ or ‘breath control.’ Breathwork is the exploration of inhaling and exhaling techniques. Breathwork is a tool for regulating, releasing, receiving, resetting, and grounding your energy in your body + systems. (from TanyaMarck.com)
