Definition

Pride

LGBT pride (gay pride) promotes the self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people as a social group. Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements.

So you're Out & Proud and living out loud... but have you ever felt deep down that there's more to discover within Yourself in all its queer authenticity? Are you looking for a safe space to find new ways to navigate life through these unpredictable, changing times we're in with higher self-awareness?

Join us on a dive into the deep sea of Universal Love to discover our True, Authentic selves and learn to find ways to live an even more fulfilling, meaningful, and purposeful life!

In this 2-hour workshop, we will explore what it means to be queer, on a spiritual quest for the meaning of life and meeting our true, authentic selves on the road of self-discovery.

Let's spark our minds, light up our hearts, and open our eyes - through a candid heart-to-heart talk filled with honest, profound - even mystical - insights to inspire you on your quest to find and become your true, authentic self.

Discover how living your true self is possible through the power of universal love that unites and transcends all religions and spiritual traditions.

(This workshop is non-denominational and open to LGBTQ+ folks from all faith and non-faith backgrounds)

Let's connect deeper with our beautiful, amazing authentic selves to bring more love, light, and joy into our lives and the world!
