Saturday, October 20th -- Yoni Healing: A Multi-Dimensional Experience
With The Brujas of Brooklyn (Griselda & Miguelina)
6 pm - 8 pm
In Sanskirt, yoni means divine creative energy; it also means vulva. Yoni is a womb. Yoni, for Brujas of Brooklyn, is a multi-dimensional experience of womb healing. Kundalini yoga, guided meditation and twerking are all combined to activate stagnant energy that lies in wombs.
The Brujas take you on a ride into the depths of your being. You'll then ascend with tools that help transmute pain into purpose. You will sweat, you will most likely cry, and in the end you’ll thank yourself for saying yes to you. Your yoni will thank you.
The Brujas of Brooklyn are Afro-Dominican identical twins, born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. They believe in the power of Spirit to cast spells that aid in collective healing. Their craft is specifically dedicated to womb-healing; they do so by creating safe spaces for women to share, grow and release generations of pent up trauma. Brujas of Brooklyn do more than help women heal from a heartbreak or financial distress. They are healing generational traumas, which women often hold in wombs, or yonis. They are Brujas, Witches, practical magic Makers. The work that they do is inspired by the 7th generation principle among Native Americans in the United States: the healing that takes place today will help to heal 7 generations before us and 7 generations after us. This is their wish. Dr. Griselda Rodriguez-Solomon (Dr. G.) is one half of Brujas of Brooklyn. She is a professor, doula and Kundalini yogi. She earned a PhD in Sociology with an emphasis on Gender Studies from Syracuse University. Dr. G. teaches courses related to Racism and Birthing (In) Justice in the US. She is a published author and Board member for the IMAGE Initiative, dedicated to empowering young women of color. The home-birth of her sun Talib changed her life forever. Dr. Miguelina Rodriguez is unapologetic critic of Gentrification with 8 years of teaching experience as an Urban Studies professor at LaGuardia Community College. She holds a PhD in Public Policy from Rutgers University; her dissertation was a critical ethnographic study on the Gentrification in Washington Heights and its effects on 2nd generation Dominicans. Dr. Rodriguez thanks her Saturn’s Return for shaping her life as a Yoni priestess. Womb wellness is her life’s work.
