It was so empowering and beautiful! We used The Circle of Life tool to gauge areas in our lives where we can concentrate on or request additional support during this time of introspection and reflection.
Candace led us in a grounding breathing and movement exercise to help us release any tension and become present in and appreciate the moment and our bodies.
Risikat provided a beautiful backdrop + a basket of roses, lavender and other herbs and spices for us to give as offerings and we released a purple Japanese lantern into the night sky.
The Goddesses trekked to the water in silent meditation and once there planted seeds for the future and were encouraged to release the things no longer serving us. …and en route there and back, and due to my weird foot phobia, Risikat and Ty both carried me on their backs, yes, y’all carried me on their backs across the muddy, standing water otherwise, I’d of missed that part. I know, I know, I need to get my life together.
The night ended with Ayanna and Free blessing us with songs to remind us of our power as women of African descent, that we are the healers, the change-makers, the original mothers, around the bonfire while the moon beamed thru the trees. Trust…you don’t want to miss the next one!
To Ty (@TheGlamtog) for your gift of capturing the magic of the experience for us!
