Black Love - Saturday Black Healing Sessions

Black Love - Black Healing Sessions

Medase, especially for all of you who attended and even “liked” the Black Love Day Dinner Celebration. It was fantastic. Photos Here!

I have two Black Love treats for you. Actually, they are two offers. One is a “Nip,” the other is a “Taste.” 

Both elixirs will lead to the kind of 360 degrees of Black Love that we’ve been celebrating - Ancestral Love, Community Love, Revolutionary Love, Building Love, Romantic Love, etc. 

The “Nip” is on the house. The “Taste” will hardly make a dent in your wallet. 

  • The “Nip” is from 10-12Noon. (Free)
  • The “Taste” is from 1pm - 6pm. (3 installments of $15 or $45)

The training will be presented live (ATL) and streamed over the web as well.

Family, 

Love is in need of love today. We’ve been wounded and re-wounded by oppression. Those wounds represent the mortal threat to real Black love and Black power. 

That’s why the media pushes the escapist “just you and me” kind of fantasy-love. It keeps our minds off the tough personal, family and organization healing work needed to form an unconditional love-foundation strong enough and flexible enough to sustain the fight, the building, the further healing we need to succeed.

Black love (unity, communication and cooperation) is sprawled out on the street convulsing from choke-holds and bleeding from the blistering barrage of 16 bullets. When not attacked from the outside, it’s also suffocating from Big Mama’s wounds passed down to protect her from Big Daddy’s misplaced anger, or his leaving never to return. 

Love is in need of love today. Deep, sustained Black love depends on Black healing - 

The “Nip”

Don’t worry; it’s non-alcoholic. Hopefully, it will become habit forming. 

On this Saturday, Wekesa Madzimoyo, AYA’s Co-Founder and others present a two-hour introduction to our Warriors-Healers-Builders (aka Healing Oppressions Wounds) process. 

It’s a nip, cause our full retreat is three days long. It’s a good nip, though. At our BLD celebrations, we can only drop tidbits from the couples. Here, we have time to answer questions or explain our Warriors-Healers-Builders process, how to use it to achieve the kind of success we see in the Black Love Day honorees. We also show how the parts work together to create a foundation for personal, relationship, leadership, and organizational success - in spite of oppression.

On Saturday, from 10am-12noon, we’ll introduce or reacquaint you to the WHB process. 

In an oppressive environment, Black Love requires that we nurture the warrior, healer, and builder in us. Black love requires that we learn how to flip from limiting to engaging. 

C’mon, take a nip. It’s on the house.

The “Taste” (WHB-Mini)

Want more than a “Nip?” Then the “Taste” is for you. Maybe you’ve heard of WHB before, and can’t wait for our next 3-day retreat on April 15-17. Maybe you’ve been inspired by our honorees from last Saturday. Whatever the reason, you want more than an introductory “Nip.”

The “Taste” - a WHB - Mini moves you from “awareness” (in your head) to integrate emotional and behavioral transformation and beginning skill-building. 

This Saturday’s mini (1pm-6pm) will feature our WHB tool combination called - The Blacknificent Seven. BN7 for short. It consists of three skills and 4 steps helping you move through those knots in personal success, relationships, communication or work. 

The Blacknificent Seven can be used anywhere, anytime. Three skills address oppression or the wounds of oppression, and four steps make us authors of our own life story.
With the “Taste” you actually “try-on” the skills and steps. With on-site coaching and practice, you’ll actually leave with things you can do to heal oppressions wounds and  build or rebuild powerful Black relationships - intimate, family, community, organizational and business.

Normally, Black Love alone would be enough. This long in the MAAFA, our love has become contaminated. Because we’re wounded, our love is often wounding. Not meaning to, we wound ourselves and others. Love’s in need of love today.

See you on Saturday.
