screening of mama bears documentary

How to Register: Registration is not required. All attendees are welcome!

We are proud to offer all attendees a special screening of MAMA BEARS, a film by Daresha Kyi.

MAMA BEARS is an intimate, thought-provoking exploration of the journeys taken by Sara Cunningham and Kimberly Shappley, two “mama bears”—conservative, Christian mothers whose profound love for their LGBTQ+ children has turned them into fierce advocates for the entire queer community—and Tammi Terrell Morris, a young African American lesbian whose struggle for self-acceptance perfectly exemplifies why the mama bears are so vitally important.

MAMA BEARS is the story of women who have allowed nearly every aspect of their lives to be completely reshaped by love. Although they may have grown up as fundamentalist Christians these two mama bears are willing to risk losing friends, family, and faith communities to keep their children safe—even if it challenges their belief systems and rips their worlds apart.

Join community member, Dylan Schiemann, as he leads attendees in restorative or vinyasa flow yoga sessions.

Dylan started practicing yoga more than ten years ago to compensate for his two favorite daily software engineering poses: laptop pose and mobile phone pose. Dylan takes a deliberate and intentional approach when teaching yoga striving to make yoga accessible to everyone. Dylan will lead either “restorative-ish” or a more deliberate vinyasa flow sequence depending on a quick survey of the attendees.

Masks are optional during Community Yoga.
