I had the gratest weekend, reading, writing, listening, talking and more writing, feeling inspired, thankful and so many feelings difficult to describe yet but I felt it with my body and soul. Because it was also very painful to realize how much silences, all the unspoken words that get stuck and hides in my, our bodies. Today I feel more brave and more alive than yesterday.  Thank you! ❤️ "My silences had not protected me. Your silence will not protect you. But for every real word spoken, for every attempt I had ever made to speak those truths for which I am still seeking, I had made contact with other women while we examined the words to fit a world in which we all believed, bridging our differences."

I get pulled into stories of moving fast, making everyine else happy and end of self sacrificing myself for others. #nottoday Audre Lorde is BAE. “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” -Audre Lorde

Put yourself first than others. Protect your soul and heart. Mark your limits. Let them know who you are and that you are not going to allow them to do what they want with you. Don't stay silent because it would not solve anything and you are the only one who has the power to change that. 
And please hear me...
LOVE YOURSELF! ❤️

SELF CARE SUNDAY! Self care is ESSENTIAL to loving a healthy life! Comment below and tell me how YOU are practicing self care today! 💙☀️🐻 #selfcaresunday #selfcare #audrelorde #quotes
"we have been socialized to respect fear more than our own needs for language and definition, and while we wait in silence for that final luxury of fearlessness, the weight of silence will choke us... it is not difference which immobilizes us, but silence. And there are so many silences to be broken." #audrelorde

When we speak, we are afraid our words will not be heard or welcomed. But when we are silent, we are still afraid. So it is better to speak. - Audre Lorde

"The learning process is something you can incite, literally incite, like a riot." Audre Lorde #formentera #ibiza #eivissa #riot #weekend #audrelorde #🌞
"Poetry is the way we help give name to the nameless so it can be thought. The farthest external horizons of our hopes and fears are cobbled by our poems, carved from the rock experiences of our daily lives."

Women of Nashville:Come join our intro evening on Wednesday 9/27 and get a taste of WomanSpeak. WomanSpeak is a regular gathering where women learn the art and soul of public speaking. 
A Women's Circle where you feel so deeply celebrated that the freedom to share your voice inevitably emerges with grace and without having to force your way through anything. 
Imagine being part of a women's group where you are supported and celebrated so deeply that your soul's message is magnetized out of you. 
A safe community where you learn what it’s like to feel free to tap into your deepest wisdom and inner knowing. 
And where you develop the courage and confidence to speak up anywhere in your life – in front of audiences, in work meetings, at dinner parties, in all of your relationships! 
I'll be leading a WomanSpeak Circle right here in Nashville! 
If you have a desire to be in community with women where you get to feel seen, supported and celebrated and where you discover the full freedom to share your voice on stage and anywhere in your life, I would love to invite you to come get a taste of WomanSpeak.

Today I presented on a topic that is close to my heart and fuels the passion I have for the work I do.  In this #breakthesilence #endtheviolence presentation I talked about how violence causes homelessness and that it's systems of silence that perpetuate violence and allow it thrive.  We must break these silences and speak our truths.  It won't be with the master's tools, it will be with #love and #empathy that we end #violence.  Empathy is the antidote.  As a group we held space for each other to talk about times in our lives we have felt silenced.  And we wrote on prayer flags to those who have been silenced and who do the silencing.  I was brought to tears reading these flags from staff, residents, clients, survivors...all people coming together.  Here are just a few of them.

Hey! Just checking back in. I took out my twists and my hair is feeling luscious and loved and I'm loving it. Definitely going to continue to treat myself to improved hair treatment.

It's ONE MONTH AWAY. 😆😆😆I am actually going to be able to see you, talk to you, and have you for TWO WHOLE hours to indulge in engaging, stimulating, and inspirational journaling activities! Where they do that at?!! No, really...where, because I think THE RADIANCE SERIES is THE ONLY one rocking the boat FOR US in a way that encompasses celebrating a practice that for SOME WOMEN:
.
➡feel is too complex to attempt
.
.
➡seems too intimate because she fears  the thoughts that may arise should she be too honest with herself.
.
.
➡they have never seen the WOMEN IN their family journal OR have ancestors who were forbidden to READ OR WRITE, far less take the time to nurture WTF is going on in her mind, soul, or the external world in which she lives.
.
.
We not doing that over here. The Radiance Series is also my gift back to the women who came BEFORE me, globally, who were discouraged, not allowed, or physically hurt for attempting to understand themselves. Your struggle was not in vain, my foremothers...not in vain at all. .

It's ONE MONTH AWAY. 😆😆😆I am actually going to be able to see you, talk to you, and have you for TWO WHOLE hours to indulge in engaging, stimulating, and inspirational journaling activities! Where they do that at?!! No, really...where, because I think THE RADIANCE SERIES is THE ONLY one rocking the boat FOR US in a way that encompasses celebrating a practice that for SOME WOMEN: . ➡feel is too complex to attempt . . ➡seems too intimate because she fears the thoughts that may arise should she be too honest with herself. . . ➡they have never seen the WOMEN IN their family journal OR have ancestors who were forbidden to READ OR WRITE, far less take the time to nurture WTF is going on in her mind, soul, or the external world in which she lives. . . We not doing that over here. The Radiance Series is also my gift back to the women who came BEFORE me, globally, who were discouraged, not allowed, or physically hurt for attempting to understand themselves. Your struggle was not in vain, my foremothers...not in vain at all. . . Carrying this torch like ☝☝☝🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥📔✒📔✒📔✒👑👑👑👑 . .

Legendary black, feminist, lesbian, socialist, warrior poet #AudreLorde always embraced her "outsider status" and always wore it like a badge of honour. But her life changed when she found the first lump in her breast, and she realized a new "outsider" status- one of mortality. Audre documents her fight with cancer and her new how facing her own mortality made her even more self-aware. We definitely recommend checking out this (and every) Audre Lorde book. #TheCancerJournals #Autobiography #ReadDisInstead

When the mint sautéing in the background won't let you be great and talk about The Radiance Series because it's low-key jealous of the multidimensional, fly women who will be journaling in Livingston, NJ on October 21! .

FYI, lightly sautée fresh mint, basil, and tomato and add it to brown rice...it's quite Mediterranean and happy-making! Not registered for The Radiance Series yet? Space is limited as we countdown one month until our workshop! The link in my bio will take you to registration where you can purchase your ticket. .

One of my daily affirmations is this beautiful quote by Audre Lorde. Define yourself for yourself!✨ #audrelorde #inspiration #affirmations
"What are the words you do not yet have? What do you need to say? What are the tyrannies you swallow day by day and attempt to make your own, until you will sicken and die of them, still in silence." New birthday reads 🤗🤗🤗

"I write for those women who do not speak, for those who do not have a voice because they were so terrified, because we are taught to respect fear more than ourselves. We've been taught that silence would save us, but it won't." -Audre Lorde
