I stand in solidarity with Black Lives.
I want to be a part of the change and the deep healing that needs to happen globally, but especially within in the US's oppressive culture. If you are interested in this deep inner work and want to gently look inside to where you may be holding trauma related to racism whether you're white, black, brown, blue or a combo like me, I invite you to simply start by looking inside yourself and your own body. This is deeply personal work AND collective work.
There is so much education available and I've been quite moved by these powerful resources:
My Grandmother's Hands by Resmaa Menakem and White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo and this electric podcast ON BEING.
Experiences within racism are NOT healed by the mind, or thinking differently, but deeply healed when we find and heal the memory/pain in the body. Our BODIES hold our stories and even the stories 7+ generations back. And we can heal.
Isn't that amazing.
