Event Description

Dreaming Awake by the Water with Tyrell Blacquemoss is a ceremony of plant medicine and water to learn to dream with ancestors and deepen rest practices. Dreaming Awake is a practice of dreamworking as divination, rest, meditation, routine, manifestation, activism, rooted in African spiritual technology. We do it because we are experiencing battle #fatigue – needing both #rest and #strategy to continue the work of our ancestors or to begin something new. We will experience #movementmeditation, #lullaby and #visualstorytelling. Dreaming Awake The Body as Ceremony Medicine Preparation. A #howto video combined with movement meditation and landscapes, discussion questions on Afam Nation (African American sovereignty) and #spiritualtechnologies for dreaming with #landscapes – geographies, emotional. I will combine movement, reiki, body and voice to create tools to support rest and #dreaming. Please watch this video before we meet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzNi20vy0rE&t=722s.
