Willing to Heal

Hello Loves,

Everyone deserves healing.

I hope you are doing well and that you are taking care of yourself. I pray that the pain and trauma being unearthed in each of us is bringing us to a better tomorrow. I pray that any pain you are experiencing at this moment will bring yourself and all beings to liberation.

Healing isn’t easy. In this time it feels like generations of ancestors are rising up asking for the healing they didn't receive. They say when we get on the spiritual path many generations before us and many generations after us benefit from the work we do. Spiritual work is not selfish. Healing work is not selfish. It benefits everyone, those close to us, and those not even close to us. 

When we are willing to do the work, miracles can happen. We’re being asked to heal a lot right now, all people, all colors, I see you digging into your histories, your hidden psyches, uncovering the wounded parts, the ugly parts, the parts we wish didn’t exist. This is an important part of the healing process. It’s a big part of healing: going in, seeing the ugly parts, releasing them, shifting the patterns. We’re doing it collectively and individually. 

There is work and healing that white people must do together. There is healing that black people can only do with other black people. Different wounds are healed in different ways. Different people heal in different ways. Some types of healing we need to go within our groups, with others who share our histories, traumas or patterns. Women’s work, men’s work, queer work, the work of the addict. We do work with those who understand our wounds and patterns.

It takes a lot to do any of this. Praying for our collective awakening.

Simone Small, Morgan Murray and I are working closely together and with our community of healers to bring you more healing for these times on earth. We will be rolling out more curated programming, scholarships and community programs as this year unfolds. Please stay tuned. We’re excited and hopeful for what’s to come.

If you're able please join us this evening for The Roots of Our Practice, led by Baba Ifasanami Erwin Thomas, Sunder Ashni, and Jordan Pagan on decolonizing wellness. The Maha Rose portion of the proceeds of this event will go to The Association for Black Economic Power.
