Blackened NVC With Jihan McDonald

In this workshop we’ll cover the core principles of NVC and explore what it means to have NVC consciousness while looking at how to use NVC in ways that are culturally responsive and appropriate for Black folks. Participants will have the chance to have Q & A with the facilitator, reflect personally on how NVC can best serve them, and practice with each other Theater of the Oppressed style. We’ll also be incorporating tools like meditation, visualization, and somatic practices that compliment the development of NVC consciousness.

Protect Your Magic 2.0 With Amira Aro

We’re back! And this time talking about what does it mean to have boundaries as disempowered people navigating power imbalances in interpersonal relationships. How do we protect ourselves as Black MaGes, especially those of us who face the most extreme of oppression in a country that continues to disrespect and harm us? How does it affect our relationships with friends and loved ones even? And how to we assert our needs, personally and beyond?

Day’s Intuitive Group Healing

I will be providing a comprehensive group healing, using remote energy work that is gentle like reiki. Participants will only need to show up, lay down, and be open to receive. For all group healings, a theme or two usually emerges once I begin working the energy of the group. Such themes I have worked with in the past included: supporting the empath with energy tools and strengthening energy protection; clearing ancestral and/or systemic traumas; working on the emotional body and the opening of the heart chakra, etc.

Beginning the Journey to Heal Internalized Anti-Blackness With Denarii Grace

Undoing the damage of white supremacy and colonialism doesn’t happen overnight; it’s a forever-journey.

But it also doesn’t require *decades* to show progress. We, as Black folk, can love ourselves NOW. We can love each other NOW. And we can learn how to do so in revolutionary, liberatory ways. We ain’t gotta wait.

AfroSensualities: An Unapologetically Erotic BHO Showcase

Over the last month, we have cried, laughed, danced, wrote, dreamed, and fallen passionately in love with each other. Now it’s time for a different kind of passion – a hot passion, an erotic passion, an unapologetically wanton passion, a spicy, kinky,, sexy passion. If you miss strip clubs, burlesque shows, play parties, and poetry readings that leave you wet, hard, and panting: this is the event for you.
