Mindfulness Training for Trans & Queer Students

About the Workshops | There is a tool out there for every emotional and mental experience and stressors that often feel unsolvable, especially when we carry multiple identities that bring in what feels like an endless amount of problems to work with. These tools often exist within us and can be easily accessible, we just need to be aware of it. Contemplative practices give us the skills to contemplate our inner experiences, and as a result, get better clarity in how we can best respond. Contemplative practices do include mindfulness, but not limited to it.

About the Facilitator | Atlas Tan (they/them) works as a facilitator, educator, spiritual care provider, death worker, and counselor. They have a Masters of Divinity in History of Buddhism and spent time studying the intersections of Queer Theory and Buddhist Liberation Theology. They have a goal of making spiritual care more accessible to those healing from religious trauma. Atlas is currently learning about contemplative practices that are engaged and center the relationship with the land they currently live on. Atlas is currently based on the unceded land of the Coastal Salish People, also known as Olympia, Washington. They work as a crisis counselor serving lgbt+ youth ages 10+, and in their free time, they like to be farming, hunting, and training martial arts
