Refund and Event Policies

Join hosts Aleta, Vimalasara, and Arisika every last Sunday of the month to release past losses, and name and claim new blessings.

As African-descended people, we always called on the ancestors when times were difficult – and we are not the first generation to face environmental change, threats of war, or personal loss.

On March 31st, let’s come together and share our fears, our dreams, and our stories of resilience. Let’s call on the ancestors who support us – and who also survived apocalyptic times – bringing stories of resistance, thrivance, hope, and human, animal and spiritual ally-ship that are the key to our survival in these perilous times.

Let’s honor the diversity of our community as we celebrate International Women’s Day, March 8, and the International Transgender Day of Visibility, March 31.

Let’s remember the lives and contributions of the warriors, educators, activists, ecologists, (etc.) … who carved out spaces for our voices, our bodies, our lives and our desires.

Who is this practice group for?

This practice group is for people with one or more parents or grandparents from the Black African Diaspora who self-identify as Black and/or mixed heritage.

We invite African descent people of all genders, sexualities, and abilities to come together to heal and be held in a supportive community.
