Many queer and trans folks find that our experiences don't fit the standard container of language—and yet, it's true for most humans that our inner lives are more complex than words can express. The intention for this session is to provide a healing space for queer and trans people to cocoon ourselves in Jewish melodies that transcend language: nigunim. Straight and cis-gender co-conspirators are welcome too. Maybe you’re looking to heal your relationship with Judaism, singing, yourself, or existence more broadly. This circle won’t do all that, but it may nurture some brave baby-steps forward! In the midst of singing, we will explore meditations to invite in all the parts of ourselves, practicing self-compassion as a foundation for showing up with love in our lives and the broader world. Off-key voices are maximally invited, even if you're convinced that singing is not your thing. You’re welcome as you are!
