We’ve been celebrated by:

Beloved,

In a burning world, our first impulse might be to turn away from it all. However, turning away won’t create a more equitable and exquisite earth. So, what now?

It all begins with the courage to heal.

Ourselves. Our lineage. Our systems. Our earth.

Our personal and collective traumas are entangled with toxic systems of oppression and domination. However, if we look long enough we’ll notice that there’s a global plea to heal deeply. But healing is difficult in a culture that normalizes toxic ways of relating and being. In many ways, we all learn avoid our shadows and the underbelly of things while our conditioning and traumas run the show. In the end we’re left:

  • Swimming in a sea of anxiety, fear, overwhelm, anger, depression and loneliness
  • Undervaluing our gifts and talents
  • Lacking boundaries so we overcompensate and overgive
  • Battling perfection and people pleasing
  • Chasing meaningless markers of success
  • Hiding our whole selves out of fear of being rejected
  • Shaming, disowning, and judging part of ourselves and others
  • Suppressing our true emotions
  • Searching externally for nourishment
  • Embodying identities and trying to fix aspects of ourselves to fit into our dominant culture
  • Settling for less than we desire in life and love
  • Struggling to express our most authentic voice

 

Get Free is a free masterclass where we imagine how to heal intergenerationally beyond systems of oppression to birth a culture that’s a reflection of our deepest expression of love and leadership.

It’s happening live on Tuesday, December 6th!

Today, marks the 3 year anniversary of George Floyd’s murder. May we always say his name and may the most privileged among us do their part in creating a world where we can all be truly free.

I’m grateful that a few members of our community gathered today for a somatics class. It gave us a chance to alchemize the emotions that arose.

The prayer we’ll continue hold in our hearts is simple…
May we all get free.

Rest in power Brother Floyd. 🖤🖤🖤

In 2020, when I learned that Ahmaud Arbery was born on Mother’s Day it broke me.

Later this month, will mark the three year anniversary of the murder of George Floyd whose last words were calling for his mother. Today, let’s say a prayer for Black mothers, the ones who’ve been named here and the names we many never know.

I pray that our humanity and that of our children. May we be protected. May we be free.

A PRAYER FOR BLACK MOTHERS​
​(written May 2020)
Ahmaud Arbery was born on Mother’s Day in 1994.

There are countless Black mothers who’ve had to (and continue to) bury their children due to senseless hatred.

Today…
We pray for Wanda Jones, Ahmaud Arbery’s mother.
We pray for Allison Jean, Botham Jean’s mother.
We pray for Charmaine Edwards, Jordan Edwards’ mother.
We pray for Dominika Stanley, Aiyana Stanley Jones’ mother.
We pray for Geneva Reed-Veal, Sandra Bland’s mother.
We pray for Georgia Ferrell, Jonathan Ferrell’s mother.
We pray for Gwen Carr, Eric Garner’s mother.
We pray for Lesley McSpadden, Mike Brown’s mother.
We pray for Lucy McBath, Jordan Davis’ mother.
We pray for Maria Hamilton, Dontre Hamilton’s mother.
We pray for Kadiatou Diallo, Amadou Diallo’s mother.
We pray for Monica McBride, Renisha McBride’s mother.
We pray for Samaria Rice, Tamir Rice’s mother.
We pray for Se`Quette Clark, Stephon Clark’s mother.
We pray for Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin’s mother.
We pray for Valerie Bell, Sean Bell’s mother.
We pray for Valerie Castile, Philando Castile’s mother.
We pray Yolanda Carr, Atatiana Jefferson’s mother.

We pray for all the Black mothers who have lost children to hatred.
We pray for Black mothers who’s hearts are weary, who are tired, who are afraid, who are grieving and who need comfort now.

May your children who are no longer here be held in our Ancestors’ embrace.
May all of our children who are with us be protected.
May you be granted sweet grace.
May love enter every cell of your being.
May you be comforted.
May you find peace.
May you be made new.

Àṣẹ. Aameen. Amen.

Reflecting on this quote by Audre Lorde today…
“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence. It is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” 🔥🔥🔥
I’ll be sharing more in an upcoming newsletter so if you want to receive it sign up at www.embodiedblackgirl.com link in bio @embodiedblackgirl

If your healing work makes you numb to the injustices of the world it’s not healing it’s colonization. #embodiedblackgirl #healing ...
