What I'm Loving.
Non Fiction: My Grandmother's Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies by Resmaa Menakem. In this book Menakem talks about the impact of racial trauma on the body and brain of all groups impacted. Complete with exercises to support all of us in becoming more connected to our bodies, this book supports the healing of people of color from the impact of racial trauma, while also explaining the impact of the racism on white people and police.
Fiction: Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. What happens when you find your God-given powers? What happens when your powers make others afraid and they demonize you? This is the story of courage, family and the faith to create change born of a vision and with commitment.
Indigenous Mental Health Awareness Network International (IMHANI) - Intro to Indigenous Holistic Health Practices in Bronx, NY January 19th, 2020. Which is free and open to the public.
Sound Therapy - it allows you to connect to emotions that are not conscious so that you can engage with them and process them. I am loving the music of Beautiful Chorus for meditation and sound bowl via youtube to connect to emotions.
Reiki Training: Reiki is an indigenous healing energy practice that has shown to provide benefit from relief of physical and emotional pain. In January I will be completing Reiki 1 and Reiki 2 and this service will be offered to clients beginning February, 2020.
Chakra Healing: In December, I had the pleasure of receiving a chakra consultation with Jesecca E. of In Grace Yoga Therapy in Brooklyn, NY. I highly recommend this service as a compliment to therapy to support understanding of your emotions from a holistic wellness perspective. As a trained clinical social worker and yoga instructor with intuitive gifts, Jesecca is uniquely poised to support clients through various aspects of emotional healing. Her specialty is healing from trauma through the body. She conducts sessions in person or virtually.
