Often the only Desi immigrant womxn at the spiritual retreat asking "How do I use manifestation to dismantle Racism?" OR the only one at the Gurdwara with family asking "if our religion says we are all equal why do men and women sit on opposite sides of the temple?" Or the only one in my activist circles saying "let's lead with forgiveness not call out culture as we dismantle white supremacy."
I live in the margins. A place where you see things others don't - darkness in "light" places, light in "dark" places the gaps or a new way. On my path towards healing and becoming a healer I ached to find teachers that could help me make sense of how to navigate the deep nuanced edge waters of our world and within myself. The oceanic shelf where familiar turquoise blue waters of privileged self help, tradition or rigid activism fell off into a deep abyss.
HOW DO I TRULY BE A LIGHT IN THIS DARKNESS WITHOUT A GUIDE?
Of course the answer was within me, bigger than me, right beside me in the soils, plants and waters of the marginal world along with magical allies swimming next to me. Each their own Brownswell - of the earth, fire air and water. Together we swam around guided by the beat of our hearts - whispering "I see you" while we stumbled to see ourselves. Over time our heartbeats turned to currents that converged into a swell churning deep below now rising up from the margins to dance with turquoise blue waters and transform our shores.
WHAT IS READY TO SWELL UP INSIDE OF YOU AND JOIN THE CURRENT OF TRANSFORMATION?
What would it be like to walk through life each step guided by the prayer of this truth, with patient purpose, one foot in front of the other? Steps that leave a legacy aligned with the prayers of your heart AND that of our communities and earth. No room for delusional visions of excess. This is the healing our world is needing us to do in these times. To step into our unique imprint as a change-maker.
Yet the impacts of modern day capitalism and colonialism has created a world where, despite our social standing, at any given moment there is the possibility of an impending "something" threatening our sense of "OK-ness" - climate crisis, health issues, anxiety, political upheaval etc. Energetically this has left us with a collective constriction. A hyper-vigilance in our nervous system and the heavy weight of separation in our hearts. At this time, true healing, individually and collectively cannot take root without deeply settling our systems and restoring our ability to connect.
Imagine feeling deep ease in your root along with warmth to remind you - “You are never alone”. IN OUR WORK COME AS YOU ARE. We will settle in with a warm cup of tea. Through conversation, meditation, energy work, time with community and our earth - planting, growing and harvesting in a beautiful outdoor garden - we will awaken our energetics of resilience. You will feel the sensation of your feet firmly planted on the ground. The sweet weight of gravity letting the cells, muscles and bones settle so you can walk with possibility and connection. Foundational ease that lets the heart and mind open. From this place we are able to transform fears, wounds, anxieties and perceived short-comings into medicine. LIFT UP OUR THREADS OF AGENCY, BECOME DEEPLY ROOTED, RESILIENT , CONNECTED AND WHOLE. Rise up to the day because we can feel in our bones I HAVE A PLACE IN THIS DAY. I AM NOT ALONE. WE ARE GOING TO BE OK no matter what comes our way.
This is healing that is of service to something bigger than ourselves; to repairing the connection within to one another and to our earth - allowing you to fold your unique thread into the web of our collective. Our world, our communities, our politics, our spirits and bodies are aching for this revolution. It’s a necessity for being potent in our modern day lives. Join the swell.
