Self Care Sunday x Healing Session with Tobi Nicole Adebajo

Collective healing is a language of conversation that is infinite and urgent. When black and brown folx come together with honest intentions, for whatever reason/s – the results can be beautiful and transformative. This is why we invite you to Self-care Sunday – because caring for the self does not have to mean isolation.
Spiritual and emotional health is not enough a part of our daily considerations as it should be – especially as BiPOC – This space aims to unpack this. Serving as a preparatory time that can help us consider the many ways we can make our spiritual practices symbiotic with our ever evolving lives.

Formulating answers to questions such as what does blessings mean to each of us? and how we can manifest that through our varying routines?
We will gather with the clear intention of creating practical, useful, decolonial and ancestrally rooted approaches to guide us on our journey/s towards healing & existing intentionally.

You are invited to bring along with you (optionally) a piece of writing that you would like to share in a safe space with like minded folx, a white item, some shells, an item that holds a lot of meaning to / for you

Writing materials will be provided – although it is welcomed and perfectly understandable if you already have your individual journals/books for ritualistic introspection.
