ProjectQ Uses Hair as a Form Of Social Justice, by inviting queer youth of color to our Salon and Community Center.

 

There we give haircuts to housing insecure youth of color, the youth “PaY” for their haircuts by taking our free self empowering workshops like financial planning, meditation, and so much more. These workshops are taught by queer professionals of color in order to give our youth the representation they need to see themselves as the main character in their own story.

 

We are partnering with Pieter for their Monday Night Class series, inviting our community members to use their talents as a form of social justice. As a reminder to use everything in our power to make the world a more equitable place.

How I Meditate! A meditation practice for beginners. Facilitated somatic experience… guided breathwork – movement – meditation practice. Using Meditation as a form of social Justice.

 

Excerpt from The Sovereignty of Quiet: Beyond Resistance in Black Culture (2012) by Kevin Quashie

 

 

From the inward furl-curl of our winter-hood to the spoke-like optimism of the new year, Using Meditation as a Form of Social Justice  will offer concentration practices in movement and breath, stillness and writing, that aim to unify our energies and support folx through a journey of buoyant self-inquiry towards the “potent” seat-potency of our individual and collective inner quietudes.

 

Text excerpts, such as that above, will be offered to contextualize how meditation and such inward-looking can be a critical resource for our collective becoming in the tight urgency of this political moment.

 

++ This workshop is but a container for a facilitated experience and is open to all peoples of all levels and curiosities. ++

 

++ This will be a low/no video endeavor so for those who, like myself, are camera shy, you are especially welcome to participate. ++
