“Black” women in the Americas (and abroad) carry the heavy burden of historically being intentionally kidnapped, enslaved, dehumanized, stereotyped, oppressed, disparaged, abused (psychology, sexually, physically, spiritually, financially, etc), and silenced, due to, and by, the Karmas of oppression, ignorance, hatred, and injustice within the hearts and mind of those who surround them in society (and by extension, its institutions, made up of the same people who intentionally inflicted, and inflict, these Karmas).
“Black” women in the Americas (of the diaspora and otherwise) have been intentionally targeted and harmed for hundreds of years, both consciously and unconsciously, by both their original kidnappers and enslavers and then by those compelled by greed and shame who were mentally disturbed and influenced by these original perpetrator due to the animal need to maintain social, political, psychological, and economic “advantages” for themselves and people who look like them.
“Black” women have, despite oppression, however, survived, saved themselves, taken care of themselves, and moved forward in the best ways that they know how while taking care of countless others and helping to build better communities and countries for all.
With the support of the power of the Absolute within them as their main foundation, our sisters rise.
“Black” women, however, as human beings existing in physical form, still need safe spaces for body-mind healing and rejuvenation.
Being constantly bombarded with reminders, and repurposed expressions, of the abuses and injustices that they face each and every day in both micro-aggressive, and aggressive-aggressive ways (as “well-intentioned” as some claim to be as “allies”), is retraumatizing and not healthy for psyches or well-being, and, is basically an ongoing psychological/psychic attack that needs to be addressed from within or it will lead to damage and destruction (which is the ultimate intention of aggressors in the first place).
The wounds, scars, and social reverberations of slavery, hundreds of years of forced rape and labor (in more than one way), human experimentation, oppression, disrespect and dehumanization in society and in the media, and so forth, sustained in/by the overall social/political atmosphere and “culture,” and in the collective psyche of those they live amongst and interact with each and every day, those afflicted with the disease of hatred, ignorance, delusion, and greed (among other things) mixed with the general global atmosphere of violence against women, are enough to exhaust just about anyone from time to time, no matter how “strong” she may be.
The Step Forward
This is a four-week Trauma Education and Support Workshop, and a restorative small group environment, that serves as a safe space for conscious “black” women to simply be in all of their beauty and their light without having to dodge the distorted projections of hatred, jealousy, scorn, and hostility that they face on a regular basis (for nothing more than the delusions held and maintained by weak-minded and ignorant people)…as soon as they turn on a media outlet channel or step outside of their front door (and sometimes without even having to leave their homes at all).
This workshop serves as a place of learning and stillness for those who need deep inner rest in order to regain the strength and realignment to continue to preserve in the hostile physical plane of existence in which “black” women, due to nothing other than the historical oppression of their physical manifestation in human form, are often met with violence and hatred from random strangers, co-workers, and people they put their trust in (from doctors to police officers and “spiritual communities” alike).
This is a trauma-informed, Yoga-centric, and Loving space for conscious black women to come back to Self and connect with their liberation beyond limited form.
Here we block out the noise and distortions of the world and connect with who we are fully in order to take our freedom and our power back and extend it into our daily lives while present here on Earth in this lifetime.
I look forward to being together with you in our next group.
