What we're about
Sawubona! This is a Zulu greeting that means 'We See You,' that has a deeper meaning as well: "an invitation to a deep witnessing and presence. This greeting forms an agreement to affirm and investigate the mutual potential and obligation that is present in a given moment." - Orland Bishop
Welcome! This is a group for people of color to engage in meditation for the purpose of self renewal, clearing and ancestral healing of race-based trauma. The microaggressions that we as black and brown people encounter on a daily basis pile up after a while, resulting in energy blockages, difficulty concentrating, and other emotional injury, now acknowledged by the medical industry as Race Based Trauma. The macro agression, murder and continuous injustices against our men and women and its casual treatment in the media hurts us, and creates internal sorrow and suffering.
This group was formed to gather those with like minds to begin the healing process. Using basic mindfulness practice and ancestral reverance, we can transform this sorrow into energy that heals, uplifts, and supports us on our journey. Even if you are new to meditation, you will find this practice relaxing, healing, and supportive.
It is especially important to have access to a community of care, a safe space to be seen, REALLY seen, for racial storytelling and to be heard, and to heal. The intention of this group is to be that community of care.
