Welcome to Black Healing October

Family!!!!

We love you! Welcome to Reclaim UGLY Presents Black Healing October!

We have collaborated with over 55 diverse Black Healers, Artists, Activists, & Educators to create a magical month full of Black love, Black revelry, Black (he)art, Black vulnerability, Black intimacy, Black healing, and so much Black joy planned just for you!

We have events every single day of the week, sometimes two to three times a day – each one offering something unique and special for Black people of all ages, identities, genders, and sexual orientations. All events will include ASL interpretation by the amazing organization, Pro Bono ASL, and offer automated live captioning.

Family, whoever you are, wherever you come from, whatever your experiences are, YOU ARE WELCOME HERE! You are home and you are safe. Join us to connect, heal, grow, scream, wail, cry, laugh, love, learn, imagine, relax, and hopefully fall in deep and sustained love/friendship/familyship with each other. This is a shame free, judgement free, JOY centered, sacred space.

We love you. Let’s Uplift Glorify and Love Ourselves Together – And Create A World Where All Other Black People Can As Well! Thank you SO much for joining us for this gentle, loving, fun, and deeply melanated revolution!!!!!!

Erotic Breathwork for Black Resilience & Black Joy With M’kali-Hashiki

In this workshop, we will take some time separating the sexual, the sensual, and the erotic so that we can understand the infinite possibilities and potential that lie in the realm of the erotic. You’ll learn breathing techniques that will allow you to access your erotic energy & circulate it, deepening your relationship to Self, and to The Divine. We’ll discuss how these deepened relationships shore us up providing fuel for & rest from the struggle for justice we are engaged in by our very existence. You’ll learn how to expand your energetic container to inhabit all of the space that is yours by your Divine Birthright that we are often prevented from occupying in order to survive White Supremacy & the kyriarchy.

Soulutionary With Amber Walker

Soulutionary was created to support us in a gentle and compassionate way to advocate the importance of self care during the pandemic. It is a highly stressful time for many so it is important to make ourselves aware of keeping our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health intact. Soulutionary is a safe and judgement free space to fellowship, vocalize frustrations, express vulnerability and create healing energy. Soulutionary’s aim is to help gently guide to find solutions and come to a resolution.
