LGBTQIA+ and The Body — Zencare

LGBTQIA+ and The Body


Our bodies tell a story, movement is part of our language.

By sharing and tapping into the impact that discrimination, minority stress, trauma, and societal

norms has on our bodies, we open our ability to express ourselves in new or forgotten ways.

The group will allow members to explore their identities and their histories through verbal

discussion as well as mindfulness & bodyfulness techniques. Members of this group will

experiment with movement, stillness, silence, and verbalization. A focus on self-care, body

image, self-acceptance and forming an allied community will be encouraged. No dance or

movement experience is required. No extra space is required beyond what is available to you

in your home.
