This year the festival is two days. I'll see you soon!
- Annual Celebration of the Haitian Revolution
I thought I could just quickly post a link about this but I don't see anything about it online! Very interesting... I just wanted to let everyone know that today (Saturday) is the Annual Celebration of the Haitian Revolution in Prospect Park. I'm sure many of you know of the significance of how spirituality was used throughout this struggle. It is all day with workshops and a powerful ceremony in the evening. During last year's ritual I saw (the Lua/Orisa) Ogun and received a beautiful message! This is an all day event from now until 10PM. I'll be there after 6PM- still with my Green and brown head wrap from Back Vegfest! The ritual portion is in the evening, perhaps around 7PM, after a day of talks and workshops. Enter the park on the Southeast corner (Prospect & Ocean Aves.) SEE MAP at . Look at the bottom, right-hand corner of the Park on the map and you'll see a huge lake! When you arrive, just walk in diagonally, veering left and you'll soon see a lake. If you walk along the lake you'll you'll see folks in white and a huge altar and you'll probably hear drumming. I hope to see you there. This is a truly powerful event.

- Tantric Sex/Healing and Divine Love
In alignment with Black Love Day, we will explore methods to awaken and enhance your sexuality and teachings about the power of divine love. Do you want to learn how to use energy/spiritual technologies to deepen your sensual abilities and experiences? Did you know that the best teachers of sensuality can be found in the Ancestral Realms? To learn more join us for our upcoming workshop on Tantric Sex and Healing! Indeed, the highest teachings about sensuality can only be gleaned by journeying to other dimensions as Dr. Seshat has done for many years. Learn techniques to strengthen the organs connected to pleasure giving and receiving. You will also learn to move the energies within the body and open your heart more to unleash deeper avenues of pleasure, self-knowledge, and an expanded consciousness. In the spirit of divine love, this workshop is basically a gift to the community where high teachings are being imparted for a nominal fee. I also want to encourage you to register in advance to receive a discount. Registering now will also help to align your energies and help you to prepare for this experience. Get ready to transform your erotic life and your ways of loving... Investment in yourself: $20 in advance ($25 at the door). Purchase tickets at http://www.sakhu.com/events.html
- Meet and Greet Plus Meditation Circle
Greetings family! I hope that you all enjoyed the sunny day today (Feb 5th)! I wanted to announce that we are now 100 members strong! One hundred melanated people who value traditional African spirituality! A group of us have also been meeting weekly since December to engage in more in-depth work with the ancestors. Meet and greet: I wanted to invite you all to another meet and greet so that we can begin to get to know one another and build community. Even if you cannot attend, be sure to reach out to me (Ekenchole Seshat) and affirm your interest in the group and future events. There will be some yummy vegan African-infused snacks. Feel free to add to the bounty if so inspired. Meditation circle: For those of you who are looking to learn how to meditate or strengthen your meditation skills we will also be holding a meditation circle. We will practice several forms of meditation and those who wish to receive an energy cleansing can partake! There will also be a chance to experience a sound healing bath! Feel free to bring an altar item to place beside you as you meditate. If possible, please wear white or brighter colors or traditional clothing. I look forward to seeing you all! -Ekenchole Seshat
- Ancestral Winter/Dry Season Ceremony
Greetings family, I hope that you are all adjusting to these cold, winter months! In the spirit of this time of hibernation and reflection, I'd like to invite you all to a ceremony to align with the energies of winter. Clearly winter is a time to go within, conserve our energies, and take stock. And so we gather to mark these times in our traditional fashion, receiving guidance from the Ancestral Realms regarding the road ahead. Please join us as Dr. Seshat brings down messages from the Ancestral Realms! Align with this divine wisdom and the energies of the season, and strengthen your daily practices. Experience the power of living a life guided by spirit! Please wear white or as much traditional clothing as possible and bring a vegan snack or beverage if you are inspired. This event is also an introduction to a collective of sons and daughters of the African Diaspora who are looking to be a part of a circle/community that receives messages from the ancestors and seeks to follow their guidance. Some gather weekly, others monthly or for certain events to celebrate our spiritual legacy and receive healing and guidance. Some of you will choose to get a reading with Dr. Seshat to reveal the soul's mission or remove obstacles. And while we hear of Orisas for the different seasons, ie. Oya for the fall, we should be aware that in Yorubaland, for example, there is no “winter”. In that region including parts of Cameroon and Nigeria, there is only the dry season and the rainy season! In fact, now would be the hotter, dry season! Just some food for thought... See you all soon! Dr. Ekenchole Seshat El
- Meet and greet for Spiritual Advisors
Join us for a meet and greet of Spiritual Advisors and holistic healers! Let us swap information concerning resources and share our experiences as healers of our illustrious community! We can plan future collaborations on many levels such as open houses and ceremonies, and even events where we can swap healing sessions/readings (this was a big hit in the past!). I look forward to meeting you all! Be sure to RSVP and please keep your RSVP updated. Thank you!
- Intro to the Ancestral Realms - meet and greet
Join us for a meet and greet to share about our spiritual paths and some of our experiences in the Spirit Realms. We will also explore some of the basic teachings of the Ancestral Realms. And, as we do each week at Sakhu, we will cleanse the space and Dr. Seshat will align with the ancestors and the god realms to receive messages. This guidance will inspire us to continue the practices of our ancestors and seek their guidance for strength and clarity. There will also be an opportunity for those who wish to share some of their past experiences with the Ancestral realms. Try to wear white or traditional clothing if possible- but no pressure re. attire this time... I look forward to meeting you all! Please be sure to RSVP for you and guests and as always, please keep your RSVP updated! Thank you.
