Queer Leather Meditation

The Queer Leather Meditation group is a peer-led meditation group for those of us who have a meditation practice and are queer and leather/kink-identified.

Our intention is to create a safe space where we can support each other as we practice in our daily lives. This group provides an accepting space where we can include the queer and leather/kinky parts of our identities and experiences when talking about our practices. We meditate together and also have time to check-in about our practices.


When: Fourth Friday of every month*, 7 – 8:30 p.m (Pacific Time)

COVID-19 Schedule Change: At the request of our Sangha, we are trying to hold an additional monthly sit on the second Friday of the month, 7 – 8:30 p.m (Pacific Time).

Where: Online! Due to the current public health emergency and local safety guidelines, our group is currently meeting virtually. Please join one of our online groups or subscribe to our email for updates. (The links are not posted publicly)

  • Note: We meet on the fourth Friday of the month. The fourth Friday is NOT always the last Friday of the month.

When EBMC opens back up, we will return to meeting at in person at East Bay Meditation Center, 285 17th St, Oakland, CA 94612

Our group is run entirely on dana, your generosity. There is no required fee to participate.
