Talk Description

Not all communities have equal access to learning and participating in meditative practices. Similarly, the meditative practices of many historically marginalized communities have been stripped from them, leaving large swaths of the population without the care they both desire and deserve. 

In this installment of C.A.F.E. 229, we are honored to welcome Grant Jones. Founder of the Black Lotus Collective, he has discovered a way to incorporate music and meditation into the healing and liberation of people with historically marginalized identities.

Join us for an episode dedicated to life, love, and liberation for all.
