The Dismantled crew is trying some new things in 2018! We're connecting with community to learn more about different paths to realizing wholeness, wellness, and liberation. This week Aja talks with Buddhist practitioner, Unique Holland about some of the misconceptions of Buddhism, and how Unique's personal spiritual practice has helped her with accepting ALL of who she is as a Black woman.
As 2017 comes to a close (deuces heaux!) and we sit in the middle of some astrological intensities the Black Out wants to know what lessons you are taking into the new year, what energies you are casting off, how will you activate your liberation in 2018...starting NOW.
Those seeking their traditional heritage eventually face the spirituality of their ancestors. Listen as we honor the reverence of Sankofa through storytelling, memories, and present day revelations. Our Ancestors are our army, our breath, and most importantly - Love.
"I can feel your energy from two planets away..."
Taking a word from brother Kendrick, the Black Out crew is not here for noboby's energy sucking, extra emotional labor, or vibration lowering. This week we're focusing on self-care/soul care, and how to keep our (emotional & energetic) tanks on full. What sacred soul-care are you doing to stay aligned with your highest self?
The Core Crew is back! Is it just us or does it seem like the world is ending? Clearly the chickens have come home to roost and the universe is showing us that it too has a response to all that has come to a head. We leave you with Aja's three R's: Respite, Relaxation, Remembering.
The Black Out Crew is back with a message of protection - following Charlottesville and continued 45 fuckery. By all and any means necessary - the spirit and our spiritual are our greatest power. There’s always a shadow to what’s great and energies that will deter our birthright of victory. Here us name, define, and navigate that shadow aka COUNTERFORCES.
We work hard to get to a certain place, position, or status in life and then after a while you realize you've submitted to the "Hamster Wheel." When's the last time you checked in with yourself about passion, about your purpose, and about your gifts? Are you in alignment and operating from that truth?
This week the core group deep dives into one of the most vulnerable and powerful parts of the body: the pussy. Yes, we're talking about vaginas. We're over the shame, silence and secrets--let's reclaim our vulvas and nurture the life force, creativity, healing, and power that all resides in the pussy! Get into it.
Loving our bodies is a struggle when our bodies have been the battleground for violence. Our bodies encompass our psyche, our spirit, our ancestry, our physical health, our emotional labor, our oppression, and our liberation. Our bodies are our vessels. What does your vessel say about you? Have you embodied liberation?
