    self-care session

    Qigong is an ancient Chinese practice rooted in Chinese medicine that helps clear, balance, and cultivate energy through gentle movement, breath, sound, and visualization; think of qigong as comprising highly specialized forms of active meditation— and a little bit like tai chi. This event will be a conceptual primer on working with energy will be offered followed by interactive instruction of foundational qigong practices. There will also be time for journaling, group sharing, and conversation to support our practice and enrich our community. An awareness of our personal energy and the innate ability to heal ourselves is a human birthright that many of us have forgotten; as such, one of the primary goals of this workshop is to offer accessible instruction of qigong and basic energy principles to the community.

    Notes for attendees: Please come dressed comfortably in clothes you can move in and be prepared to bare your feet and bring a journal and writing utensil if you have.

    Seher

    Seher is a Brooklyn photographer, writer, and community facilitator with the heart of her work rooted in the inextricable link between art, media, culture, healing, and social change. Her highest intention is to create potent and inspiring medicine — projects, initiatives, works, spaces, movements — to spark creative dialogue and help elevate the way we exist as humans.

    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” 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.
