 The Queer Dharma LGBTQ-QIA2 Sangha is a community of meditation practice for all people, founded and hosted by LGBTQ people [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer] and sponsors a free meditation open house that caters to Atlanta’s LGBTQ community. While the Dharma is the Dharma no matter who hears it, The  Queer Dharma LGBTQ Sangha provides a safe and sane environment in which the unique concerns and experiences of LGBTQ individuals are addressed and through which the Dharma can be viewed and discussed through the lens of the “Queer” experience.  We are at all levels of experience, from questioning/beginners to long-time practitioners but all are welcome.

If you would like to be on our mailing list you can email Sally Larrick at sally@atlantashambhalacenter.org and ask to be added to our Queer Dharma LGBTQ Sangha email list.

Join us on our Queer Dharma Atlanta LGTBQ Sangha Facebook page for ongoing news and discussions throughout the month.

Stay tuned for announcements about future gatherings! Meditation practice provides a warm, genuine basis for realizing the full potential of our inherent wisdom. Through the practice, we learn to touch in with this wisdom, allowing us to live our lives with a mind that is more present and fully engaged. Waking up to our own inherent goodness has a natural impact on our family members, friends, co-workers, and our world at large.
