    Black Girl Magik presents the Reclamation Circle, a 3-part monthly sacred circle harnessing the transformational energy of the new moon to reclaim African folk wisdom, divine alchemy, personal liberation and communal care.

    As fall turns to winter and our personal inclination turns to introspection, we will gather collectively to set anew, process old wounds, tend to ancestral healing and manifest our sacred passions for 2020.

    The circle will operate as both a participatory and resource sharing space. More in-depth than traditional BGM meetups, we will engage in grounding meditation, somatic body-work exchanges and intimate readings and dialogue aligned with lunar themes, ancestral connection and healing in real time.

    The circle will be supported by recommended readings and self-reflection journal entries that’ll explore African spiritual practices and personal evolution. We will ceremoniously create a Himalayan Salt Scrub blend infused with herbs and flower essences that support reclamation which everyone will go home with and use during the lunar cycle. Additionally, each session will start and end around a community altar where we’ll actively honor our ancestors and dedicated healing.

    This is an inclusive, safe space for self-identifying Black women, both cis and trans, and black non binary femmes longing for a powerful, supportive community to commune, seek, share and support. Dedicated to deep intimacy, the circle will consist of remain small in numbers.

    Engaging Legacy

    Engaging Legacy is the pursuit of integrating remembrance into our lifestyles to ensure traditions, knowledge and past experiences are protected and preserved. We are here to acknowledge the legacies that came before us. Now is the time to celebrate. We will celebrate the power of the past, the fertility of the present moment and the legacies we are building in real time.

    Transcending Time

    “Transcending Time” is a voyage into a future where Black identity is unfettered by a predetermined architecture. It is a visualization exercise exploring the texture, pattern, sound and rhythm of Black possibility. Who do we become when healing from trauma is decentralized? We are creating a ceremony of self-authorization. We are giving ourselves permission to reimagine what was, what is and what can be.

    Reclaiming Pleasure

    "Reclaiming Pleasure" is the assertion of sexual power, alongside a period of recovery. It is a Black woman finding strength in her sensuality and grounding autonomy in the realms of pleasure and desire. It is the rejection of standards set on our ancestors and the distinction between agency and objectification.

    Returning Home

    Returning Home

    “Returning Home” is an exploration back to lands, rituals and traditions that we have always known. It is voyaging and feeling at home as soon as you step foot on the ground. It is hearing music and your soul perceiving the frequencies. It is seeing a familiar face and knowing that somehow you have met before. “Returning Home” is a return to self.
