This past week the healing collective that I am a member of, Harriet’s Apothecary, was invited by the organizers of #Black Lives Matter, Alicia Garza and Patrisse Cullors to facilitate a healing space at their first national BLM retreat at the Allied Media Conference in Detroit, MI.

What we did was call onto the four elements and grounded the healing space with love, we reminded others and ourselves to take breaks, nourish their bodies and hold space for the movement and for healing. We massaged, soothed, calmed, twerked and planted our feet in the earth and conjured our ancestor’s spirits.

I am forever grateful to be involved in this movement while doing work that I love, I am a healer and I get to heal within a community that I fiercely love and appreciate.
