    with Synmia Rosine

    Synmia Rosine is an herbalist living in Idyllwild, CA.  She happened upon the healing powers of herbs 7 years ago.  The pressures of being a youth, along with the loss of her father became all encompassing.  Driving her into a deep illness so great she had to put herself on heavy psychotropic medication.  During these years her health depleted.  She did what was always advised: therapy + your Pills.  But she began to feel her inner fire fade.  In need for change, she detoxed herself from all to start over. Fresh.  Like rising from the mud.  Using Earth's medicine to remedy any of her ailments, mental or physical. Seven years later, she continues to allow the medicine to heal her, and guide her in her healing work.  She has created an Ancestral practice centered around healing through herbs & medical astrology.

    This event is part of Returning Home, a theme that the Black Girl Magik collective explored and invited the community to investigate with us through a practice of communal healing and coalition building.

    Disconnecting to Reconnect

    The Black Girl Magik collective supports each member in her healing journeys through our annual self-care break. During this time we disconnect from social media to the capacity our programming allows, the internet and other distractions to further reconnect with ourselves. Additionally, we take this time to re-engage with the mission of the collective and to return the root of what it means to organize and build collectively. We are now considering what this self-care break can look like when we invite transparency into our restoration process, and engage our community through physical programming.

    The main goal of our residency with Powrplnt is to provide resources for women of color to engage in restoration and healing and to define self-care on their terms. We aim to: 1) conjure the capacity to center the resilience of women of color; 2) provide resources for women of color to engage in restoration and healing with us, and to define self-care on their terms; 3) host programming, open studios and discussions for and with the community.

    Healing is a journey and we are honoring this journey as a collective by disconnecting from social media, the internet and other distractions to further reconnect with ourselves. We invite you to join us and can’t wait to share how you can meet us IRL.

    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” 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.
