My dreams for Black Healing & Black Liberation is for ALL Black people to be thriving and honoring each other’s wholeness, ancestry, spirituality and beauty. I see a future that is built on healthy relationships of trust, safety and sweetness. When we decenter whiteness and decolonize from white supremacy we will let go the grip of misogynoir, homophobia, transphobia etc and begin to celebrate our complexities within our Black identity. We will work towards ending violence and cycles of harm in order to embody love, power and elevated consciousness.

Event Description

Meditation & Relaxation is a workshop led by Dominique Cowling. As we cope with many of the stressors that 2020 has brought and highlighted, this is an opportunity to slow down to soothe the nervous system with gentle movement, mindfulness meditation and breathwork to support your health and wellness. No experience necessary for this introductory workshop.

Who Is This Event For?

This event is open to all genders, sexual orientations, ages, immigration status etc. If you have an interest in expanding your self care toolkit this would be perfect for you. It is probably not ideal for anybody who does not feel curious about exploring mindfulness meditation for an hour.

Event Goals, Hopes, & Outcomes

The workshop goals are to provide tools that may increase a sense of ease in participants’ mind, body and spirit. My hope is that each person discovers many moments of emotional intimacy and balance that build a foundation of resilience. I also believe that witnessing each other in (online) community will give a boost of hope that we need at this time.

Event Length

1 hour

Event Date and Time

Presenter Bio

Dominique (she,her) is a healing practitioner that supports survivors by transforming trauma and violence into opportunities of liberation. She is honored to share tools of trauma-informed yoga, mindfulness & ecotherapy to communities of color and folks who identify as lgbtqi+. She is currently working as the Healing Justice Program Manager at Community United Against Violence (CUAV) in San Francisco, Ca. In addition, she provides 1: 1 nature based mindfulness sessions for people of Black / African descent in Oakland.

“It’s important to provide offerings that prioritize our healing, pleasure, joy and dreams. As we continue to see increased violence against our bodies, I believe Black Healing October shows our communities that we are worthy and deserving of so much more. For the past several years, I’ve offered my workshops to BIPOC folks but my heart has always known that my energy needs to be focused strictly on the healing of Black people.”
