Trans faith internship pilot program

Overview of enfleshed

enfleshed creates and facilitates spiritual resources for collective liberation through prayer, liturgies, art, teaching, writing and other meditations. Our work is largely positioned within Christian-adjacent traditions centering the wisdom, experiences, and desires of those on the fringes of dominant institutions, theologies, and politics. 

Our values align with the poets, the healers, the truth-tellers, the tender and fierce, the messy and untidy, the seekers, the queers, and the strange ones across spiritual traditions. With attention to the Sacred in the flesh of the earth and all creaturely forms, we find God in the entangled, fleeting, beautiful, and aching nature of this “one wild and precious life.”
