MLK, LGBT and “The Beauty of Our Lives”

LGBT speakers-120The Institute has been conducting a series of mindfulness retreats for LGBT people that have attracted hundreds in the past two years. April 17 – 20, 2014 we’ll present our third annual retreat for LGBT communities, entitled “The Beauty of Our Lives,” led by Larry Yang, Maddy Klein and La Sarmiento. “We do not have many chances,” Lang writes, “to support our social, cultural and political work with our spiritual journey. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. taught that ‘As you press for justice, be sure to move with dignity and discipline, using only the instruments of Love.’ Our intentions are to invite our communities into the spiritual supports from which social transformation can benefit.” Yang reflects on his own experience as a gay man of color and a meditation practitioner and teacher in this video interview by the Garrison Institute.
