Mindfulness Meditation Course: PRESENT BEING
This group is for LGBTQ+ Veterans and their Allies.
"Inner Warrior Spirit is a non-profit started by a Navy Veteran and Naropa Undergrad, and serves Veterans in the broader community. In partnership with the Denver Women’s Correctional Facility, we make and sell meditation cushions for the public and give them free to veterans. We are also bringing mindfulness meditation to various groups in our community. Mindfulness has proven time and time again to be one of the most powerful tools in softening life’s daily challenges.
This past year has been an unprecedented year of visibility for the transgender community. Janet Mock started her show on MSNBC, the first in history hosted by a transgender person. We also saw trans people honored by awards, shown in film, portrayed on TV, and we even saw our stories told to the next generation through children's books.
Grateful for this lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community,
Grateful for our volunteers,
Grateful for our community partners,
Grateful for our allies,
Grateful for our board,
And grateful for you!
On October 15, 2015, millions of people across the country will wear purple to take a stand against bullying -- and in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender young people. We are encouraging all Coloradans to wear purple and participate in Spirit Day with One Colorado and GLAAD. Take the Spirit Day Pledge today.

He was on the Out Boulder Board for 5 years (Treasurer for 3 years and President for 1 year). Dave has also been the President of the BCAP Board for 2 years, and still hosts Out Boulder’s yearly Garden Party fundraiser, which has continued to be one of our most important events of the year.
