When we look around the world we see that same sex love had a place in every continent around the world until European colonists imposed their own value systems. This workshop looks at the forgotten history of Queer people from around the world. We’ll look at:

  • How same sex love has played a part in cultures across the world throughout history
  • The role queer people have always had in their societies that was often healing, nurturing and important for the survival of the tribe.
  • Some of the most influential individuals across history that were Queer.

From the African tribes that used the term 'two eyed ones' to describe people who could see with both the masculine and feminine eye to the Samoan islands where gay uncles held a central role in helping to raise their nieces and nephews and ensure their safe passage into adulthood. We will look at how societies around the world valued and embraced individuals who loved people of the same sex.

What customers say...

“I never thought an LGBTQ group meditating together would be something I need - but I was blown away by the experience. The sense of connection, the talking and shared experience we felt was so amazing.”
