A Curated Conversation with A.J. Lowik & Cicely-Belle Blain

Join Yoga Outreach & Modo Yoga East Vancouver for an intimate afternoon of conversation on gender inclusion and it’s intersections. A.J. Lowik and Cicely-Belle Blain will focus the conversation on gender-based inclusion with particular attention to trans-inclusion.

Hosted by Wendy Goldsmith.
