Grounded and Together
The government's response to the protests against police brutality and pandemic are burning down the facade that the US government will keep us from safe from violence and take care of us in times of great crisis.
In reality, it was never designed to do that actually - beginning with its founding in colonization, slavery, white supremacy, patriarchy, and exploitative capitalism.
But many of us had hoped that it was getting better.
And now, whether we want to or not, we are being forced to face the pervasive reality of state violence - and how exploitable and disposable we are to those running this country in the name of profit maximization.
Many of us are turning toward that violent reality and letting its existence sink in on deeper and deeper levels in our body.
This is necessary for us to acknowledge reality and start taking action grounded in what is actually happening - and not in what we would like to be happening.
But turning toward this reality can be so overwhelming, painful, and scary for many of us.
That's understandable - it's an overwhelming, painful, and scary reality we are living in.
So it makes sense if some of us are getting charged up and flailing into action or becoming too confused and exhausted to take action.
But those aren't our only options.
We can also turn toward this violent reality from a sense of groundedness and togetherness.
From there, many possibilities arise - and we have a chance to create a truly different reality for our future.
A more liberating, compassionate, and just future - where human beings and nature are valued over capital and profit maximization.
That's why I wanted to create this gathering for BIPOC.
In this 90-minute Zoom video call, we will:
- Get grounded and into our bodies
- Speak from the heart about what's real for you
- Be witnessed with deep presence and care
- Feel a sense of gentle togetherness and not alone
- Have separate break out rooms for those wanting a Black-only space for group sharing
If we get grounded and come together, we can use these times to burn down our chains - and not our spirit.
We are the ones who can protect each other.
We are the ones who can care for each other.
We are the ones who can stand united together.
If we show up for ourselves and each other.
So let's do this.
I hope to see you there.
With love and in solidarity,
