“Until we’re resting in the place that doesn’t change, we’ll be afraid of the place that does.” – Ram Dass

Bharat Lindemood joins us in queer fellowship to discuss his path to bhakti & buddhism, and share stories of Ram Dass and Neem Karoli Baba. This session will include meditation, discussion, and opportunities to connect in loving-kindness.

  • Hold a space for exploring being LGBTQ+ from the perspective of consciousness
