this weekend i was part of a BIPoC breathwork immersion and it was three days of deep restlessness. i cried simply because of the deep feelings i had within me and sometimes lack of. my mind continued to wake me up each night in anger. i feared this would be something coming to surface that i couldn't handle.
all that to only rise today feeling clearer than i have in years. gratitude seems to pour out of me. this feels like fulfillment, yet how could i go between two extremes in a matter of hours?
the great storm before the shine is a deep purging. to make space, we must release.
my deep restlessness was a purging i did not know how to name. often we resist these moments as we feel they will be never ending, yet sometimes its just the release we need to make space for fulfillment. as this year comes to a close, purge my friend. purge through movement, purge through deep breath, purge through tears. purge to make space, purge to find center, purge so you can take that breath of fresh air and feel alive again.
let this be the blessing you need to begin anew.
one more time?

i want to thank each and every one of you for making it possible for me to be here today. you have made it possible for me to live and do this work. you have allowed me to witness the power of discovery, opening, and transformation. you have helped me see that being true to myself in this work only offers more resource to the collective opening. thank you for any and every thing you have done. thank you for rockin' with me and allowing me to do this part of life with you. thank you for being a gift.
let this be the blessing you deserve & desire this Winter solstice.
"Standard English… is the language of conquest and domination; in the United States, it is the mask which hides the loss of so many tongues, all those sounds of diverse, native communities we will never hear...we create the ruptured, broken, unruly speech of the vernacular... There, in that location, we make English do what we want it to do. We take the oppressor’s language and turn it against itself. We make our words a counter-hegemonic speech, liberating ourselves in language.” -bell hooks taught me. & more here.
