The Black Woman Is God: The Paradox of identity

The East Bay Meditation Center's 'People of Color Sangha': Thursday Night Meditation Sit and Dharma Talk. Dharma Teacher, Amana Brembry will lead the Meditation and Dharma talk, highlighting 'The Black Woman is GOD: The Assembly of GODS' exhibition.

SUMMARY: East Bay Meditation Center's Dharma Teacher, Amana Brembry will lead the Meditation and Dharma talk, highlighting The Black Woman is God exhibition. Amana Brembry will lead a 30-minute meditation and a 20 minute Dharma Talk, highlighting in honor for the East Bay Meditation Center's 'People of Color Sangha' Thursday night sit.

Every being seeks to have a life filled with well being, free of fear, and resonate with a sense of belonging and self worth.  Inherent within the lived experience of People of Color and Black Women in particular, is a pervasive conditioning towards dehumanization that impedes this personal fulfillment.  Self identity is essential in healing the wounds of oppression.  During this talk we will dive into the internal healing that takes place when Black Women reconnect with their essential benevolence through radical self identification and identify the internal barriers to liberation that arise when definitions of self are not fully embodied with the ethics of one's innate goodness.  The paradox of identity lies in the question of how can internal vitality strengthen and flourish in ways that do not construct masks and barriers that block personal and collective liberation.

Sistas Wellness by Uppity Edutainment

These sessions are to hold space for Black women, to allow room to process and talk, to breathe and to simply be. Each session will begin with a general check in with light plant based pre-workout nutrition. Discussions will take place on the floor with stretching. Topics will focus on areas of anxiety for African American women. An hour will be dedicated to the group topic. We will then follow with self defense classes taught by a certified instructor.
