I dream of individual and collective awakening to our majesty; a series of internal revolutions that contribute to sustainable, external liberation in our physical reality.

Event Description

We love our Mommas. And, some of us have experienced some of our deepest hurt from our Mommas, too. Sometimes, this reality makes Momma hard to love, and having a relationship with her difficult or nearly impossible. This workshop is a space for telling it like it is, witnessing, healing ourselves, and supporting the healing process of other Black self-identified womxn as we journey towards a deeper relationship with self. We will practice creative writing through “divine improvisation”–trusting our intuition, stream of consciousness, and ultimately the truth of our lived experiences to guide us to manifest the creative medicine that we need to heal. This workshop will include honoring of our ancestors and the land, movement, meditation, and finally an intentionally curated writing experience that is designed to support you in your healing process. Together, we will practice compassionate listening, the offering of affirmations to one another, and speaking our truths out loud without disclaimer as a part of healing our psyches from the onslaught of generational trauma. The movement and meditation portion of the workshop will be led by Keisha Turner of Earthchild.

  • All writing skill levels welcome!
  • Please bring writing materials, including a journal and pencil/pen or other writing instrument
  • This is a sacred space and is meant to serve the participant’s unique healing process. Participation in each exercise is based on your comfort level and needs. 

Who Is This Event For?

Black self-identified womxn

Event Goals, Hopes, & Outcomes

I want participants to feel seen and heard in a way that they have never experienced before. Ideally, walking away from the workshop, participants will be able to look back at their creative offerings and gain insight into themselves, unlocking another level of possibility for generational healing.

Presenter Bio

I am a Southern girl who headed west to discover the birthright of my ancestral genius. My story on this plane began in a small rural town in North Carolina. Throughout my earlier years, my being was heavily influenced by the seasonal threat of hurricanes, the soft, yet stern crack in my grandmother’s voice, and the “uh hmms” and hands on hips of other Black, Southern (vicariously African) women of my community. I began writing at the age of 5; writing was the first, and for a long time, the only medium through which I could hear my own voice. My creative sensibilities were further developed and expressed through music, and the Free Will Baptist church was where I was first baptized into my Blackness. In recent years, I have brought my Black southern-ness into the foreground of my chosen identity, recognizing it as a foundational pillar on which all of my art, work, and relationships rest. I currently reside in Oakland, California where I have lived for the past 8 years. I am the owner of two creative businesses, Fenyx Consulting LLC and Oh Snap! Photo Experiences. My personal creative projects are focused on the spiritual liberation and ancestral healing of Black people. I collaborate with other Southern-rooted Black women and BIPOC to curate experiences that inspire reflection, connection, healing, and transformation.

“Participating in Black Healing October is important to me because in this moment, I believe that the healing of our psychological, spiritual, and physical being is an indispensable part of our fight for liberation.”
