We’re journeying to Tulum, Mexico for our retreat. You’ll spend 6 glorious days nestled between the Caribbean Ocean and the rainforest unmapping from interpersonal, cultural and colonial wounds and rooting to your most expansive expression of life and leadership. Rooted visioning. Expansive dreaming. Embodied aliveness. Wild devotion.

ROOT DEEP AND RECLAIM

Circle of Reclamation is a year-long course and community where we go deep and do the healing work that impacts the way we show up interpersonally and in our leadership.

In 2020, when I learned that Ahmaud Arbery was born on Mother's Day and what would have been his 26th birthday also landed on Mother's Day I wrote this prayer. It broke me to realize that instead of celebrating this special day with his family Ahmaud was brutally murdered in a act of senseless racism.

I also recognize that later on this month will mark the two year anniversary of the murder of George Floyd who's last words were calling for his deceased mother. I've also added his mother's name and that of Ma'Khia Bryant to the prayer.

This Mother's Day please join me in praying for Black mothers, the ones who are named here and the ones who's names we'll never know.

I pray for the day where the humanity of Black mothers and our children are cherished.

A PRAYER FOR BLACK MOTHERS​

We pray for Wanda Jones, Ahmaud Arbery’s mother.
We pray for Allison Jean, Botham Jean’s mother.

We live in an age of disconnection and disassociation. Through violence, dominant colonial culture has severed our connection to ourselves, one another and to our earth. And yet, this connection is essential to all of life.

CEREMONY is where we cultivate a culture of devotion. We surrender to the sacred and remember who we are. We’ll meet during seasonal portals to honor and mark our individual and collective thresholds.

Our upcoming CEREMONY happens in honor of the Spring Equinox, a time for rebirth like the phoenix rising out of the ashes. A time to plant the seeds that you'll nurture pray to harvest.

During Ceremony we’ll use tools such as breath, guided journeys, journaling, somatics, ritual to come home to our essential selves. Every Ceremony experience is unique and what arises is guided by Spirit and the medicine for sacred moment.

This is a space to explore the landscape of your soul, to release stuck energy and access your wholeness and radiance.

​CEREMONY is for self-identified BIPOC women and femmes.

When: March 21, 2022

Time: 8pm-10pm EDT

When you sign-up your ticket is good for you + those you invite to join you at your physical location (your home/office/community center/park). That means you can invite one friend or many more to join you in-person, it's totally up to you! I know, it's pretty amazing! I can't wait to be together for our global ceremony!

✨EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT ✨
In early January, I led Decolonial Visioning, a workshop to dream into and map out 2022 and it was so beautiful. What emerged from that community space brought so much clarity for many (thank you for the love notes 💖) and it also further crystalized the work I'm meant to bring forth this year.

For the past 4+ years, I've gone deep in my studies around trauma, attachment and the nervous system through a number mentorships and trainings. All of this has deeply informed the work I facilitate and my own healing.

So when I was invited to take part of the first BIPOC cohort of Somatic Experiencing @somaticexperiencingint led by a Black woman elder, it was an immediate heck yes for me!

Sharing space with other BIPOC practitioners from nearly every continent who are also dedicated to bringing healing and bridging the gap of mental health and wellness access in their communities globally has given me so much hope and lit a fire! 🔥🔥🔥

Being among them has been a reclamation of the intelligence and wisdom of our ancestors. Although much was severed and lost due to colonialism, racialized and gendered capitalism and imperialism the medicine lives in our cells and now we get to bring it home.

I know our ancestors conspired for this moment! I’m honored and humbled.

I've already been seeding powerful trauma resolution and resilience work in the spaces I hold and it's been transformative to witness.

All I can say is the goodness is already here. ✨✨✨

This month, I'm hosting two live gatherings in honor of Black History Month to weave deeper healing within the Black community and embodied racial justice into the world. Breathwork and Somatics to Heal Your Heart (open to Black folks) and Breathwork and Somatics for Racial Justice (open to all). I’m honored to continue the work of those who’ve come before me and I’m so excited to gather. 💜

We’re hosting 2 beautiful live gatherings in February in honor of Black History Month! 🙌🏾 Check out the previous post to view our other gathering or visit www.embodiedblackgirl.com ✨

Over the past few years more and more folks have been asking themselves: How do we create a more just and equitable world?

After leading conversations around this topic for now thousands of folks of all backgrounds I can share the work begins in our bodies and it also can’t happen in silos.

Breathwork and Somatics for Racial Justice will explore this how to deepen the work of racial justice through our bodies and through our actions. The gathering will center the lived experiences of BIPOC and will be an opportunity for those in attendance to do the work to expand their resilience so they can show up in more meaningful ways in the spaces they occupy.

You'll be invited to trust in the medicine of your breath and body to unmap from the ways you've supported and have shaped by systems of domination.

This gathering is open to all. ✨

Happy Black History Month!!! 🖤

In honor of Black history there will be two gatherings this month! (The next one will be posted soon or can be found on embodiedblackgirl.com)

The last time I led this gathering it was at a beautiful space in Brooklyn with about 40 folks in attendance. It was a magical evening and I'm thrilled to be offering it virtually for the first time and weaving in somatic practices in service of deeply healing your heart.

Living in a culture that discards racialized folks our hearts can carry an unimaginable amounts of grief both conscious and unconscious. That along with all the heartbreaks we experience we can feel the loss of belonging, of home, of family and so much more.

And yet our hearts are abloom with wisdom and healing.

Oftentimes, to access the wisdom within our hearts we must be able to be with and tend to our grief. As we do, it creates an opening to more possibility.

Breathwork and Somatics to Heal Your Heart is an invitation to be with the wisdom of your heart and trust in the medicine of your breath and body to hold the parts of you that are longing for your care.

This gathering is for self-identified Black folks: women and femmes, gender non-conforming and non-binary people.

Resilience can be a triggering word and yet, so much of the work I facilitate is rooted in expanding our embodied resilience.

When I got the opportunity to do an in-depth interview with for Authority Magazine with Savio C. Clemente I jumped at the opportunity to explore how we can rise in resilience especially during these turbulent times.

The reality is that the word resilience has been weaponized and this is an opportunity to unpack, dismantle and reclaim resilience as a liberatory practice. Link in bio to read @theresecator #embodiedblackgirl #theresecator #authoritymagazine

What I know deep down in my bones…
Community is the antithesis to the colonial capitalist patriarchy.
Community is the antidote. Community is the medicine. 💜 #embodiedblackgirl
