and let newness in in order to rebirth Yourself" 🌿
I’m surrounded, covered, protected and guided by Male Spirits and Male Warrior Guides. They are strong, courageous, heated, hot tempered, machete swinging, loud and yelling, all shades of RED, Fire, cigar smokin, high kickin, raffia wearing folks.
One of the things Vodou has taught me,
and still continues to teach is BALANCE.
I chose to create Dancing Spirits: Female Lwa Embodied through Movement, Song, Writing & Ritual out of the necessity to tap in and CONNECT with the female spirits in Haitian Vodou, the tradition I am called to serve. I NEEDED this medicine. This Wellness + Healing series wasn’t only intended for my benefit, but for my community as well. We need safe, supportive, non-judgmental spaces to heal. As I reflect on the 3 previous workshops (La Sirene, Ezili Freda & Ezili Danto), I am moved to tears with the level of trust, transparency, vulnerability, compassion, commitment, love, respect and GROWTH from each participant. Internal work is necessary within these African Spiritual Traditions that have called us.
WE ARE DOING THE WORK!
HONORING the Spirit within.
"Racine" - ROOTS: reNEWal & reBIRTH!
What a fantastic healing session with these beautiful beings.
Out with the OLD.
Let it go.
Make way for the NEW...because we all deserve that goodness.
We went IN.
Our journeys are deep... thick.
First Manbo in Haitian Vodou. Divine Feminine.
Keeper of Ancestral Knowledge and Keeper of Secrets.
Healer. Nurturer. Priestess.
We all came together to do this internal work. Collectively. What a joy to witness.
This is my offering.
Humbly given with a pure heart.
Ayibobo, Manbo Ayizan!
Ready, Set, Goooo!
The journey continues...
