mehfil, a trans/queer collective, is raising money to bring 8 organizers (6 are queer & trans) to Mexico for a heart-healing, profound yoga immersion.
trans people (especially Black & brown folks) have been carrying liberation movements & movements for collective care since the very beginning.
the collective started with the support & guidance of my mentors & friends as a space to fundraise for the emergent care needs of our community.
goal is to center trans folks who are space holders, disrupters, organizers & advocates and fund an immersive experience of self-care for them.
we're always fighting, taking action, on the move.
we can't get free without healing, resting.
Anjali Kamath Rao (she, her), a yoga educator,researcher and activist who uplifts the intersectional lens in integrating yoga philosophy and history, with storytelling from voices often erased & Avery Kalapa (they.them), an Iyengar yoga teacher devoted to queer & trans wellness with over 20 years experience will hold space for us in november.
i want my community to access this care.
be more resourced, nourished & breathe a little easier.
help me make this happen.
