A Laying On of Hands: A Black Healer’s Guide to Individual and Collective Healing With LaTasha Monique

This workshop places Black Healing at the center and invites you to get cozy with self and others as we re-remember ancient ways of healing. During our time together we will share already known ways of healing as well as explore healing techniques that we lost during the diaspora. This workshop use existing ancestral knowledge to blend chakra work, chanting, color therapy, meditation, and self-reiki as a way to heal self and others. While colonizers have re-branded these healing techniques and put a price tag on them, they are all very much inherent to and in all of us. Come on, let’s explore and bring all our expertise to the table. The only requirement is to come as you are – just the way the ancestors like it.

On Becoming Emotionally Well With Joshua Young #1

This offering invites you to explore how meditation supports becoming emotionally conscientious. We create a foundational practice using meditation techniques designed to have us connect deeper to breathing, and to be aware of the body and its desire to surrender. Next, we move into understanding the impact emotions have on the body, and how our response can shape our experience of them. We finish by exploring some of the most common emotions happiness, anger, sadness, and anxiety. We finally create through this course and within the body, resilience. The sessions offered will be paired; part 1 is about building meditation practice and part 2 is to explore the emotions more deeply.
