Community Program Updates

NEW GROUP! Polyamorous Peers is meeting 2nd and 4th Tuesdays at the Pacific Center from 6:15-8:00pm. This group is for people who are interested in discussing the emotional aspects of non-monogamy. It is designed to provide each other support as we navigate polyamorous relationships (those who develop emotional relationships with multiple people concurrently). If you’re interested in joining drop-in or contact for more info. 


The center will be offering peer groups in a hybrid/in-person model.


Mental Health at the Intersections (MHTI) is a FREE day-long conference for mental health providers and community workers that centers care & support for those who sit at the intersections of race, gender, and sexuality. This year we are focusing on the mental health and wellbeing of LGBTQIA+ BIPOC youth. There will be workshops for youth ages 11+ and workshops for adults who work with youth. 

Registration will become available soon. Please follow us on social media and visit our website for updates and to learn when registration opens. Please reach out to our Training Program Manager, Glo Rodriguez at glo@pacificcenter.orgwith any questions. We hope you are able to join us.


Pacific Center has partnered with the West Berkeley Family Wellness Center for a series of workshops on mindfulness, wellness, and healing through art that will run throughout the spring. Our current series Mindfulness and the Science of the Mind runs through March 8th. Click the link to join (space is limited). And look out for the next session, Designing a Medicine Bag, starting March 25th!
