Monthly MBB Community Conversations are open to anyone hoping to deepen their commitment to building bridges with mindfulness and personal clarity. Community Conversations are held every 3rd Friday of each month for two hours.

The Community Conversations are a gathering of fellow ‘bridge builders’ to support one another in their efforts to convey love and acceptance to LGBTQI+ people. The Conversations follow the same contemplative practice employed in the MBB Contemplative Retreats held twice a year in April and October; including a guided group discussion, introspection exercise, and individual journaling time (plus snacks!) Each Community Conversation addresses a different issue or question – so you are invited to attend as often as you like.

Community Conversations are designed to help you contemplatively manage the myriad questions and concerns many people experience between LDS Church teachings and the realities of LGBTQ+ people’s lives. These Conversations help us address the most pressing questions that we commonly ask ourselves, examine our thoughts and feelings safely, and remind us how to maintain healthy interpersonal boundaries. Ultimately, they are an invitation to stillness and peace in order to listen to wisdom found within.
