Last week, I sent out a newsletter sharing my own fears that have been coming up and asked you, “What do you need right now?”
From the survey, we saw three trends.
First, you’ve said you need specific meditations to work with what is happening in the world. We’re working with several of the teachers on the Liberate app to come up with meditations. We are working with both teachers that identify as Black and/or of the African Diaspora and other POC teachers as well.
Second, you’ve said you need community and connection. Which is why we are launching an experiment. For the next 5 days (March 23rd-28th) , Monday thru Friday, @ 12pm EST for 45 minutes, we’ll come together to meditate, share what came up for each other, and hold space for each other. This is for if you identify as BIPOC only and we will be centering those that identify as Black and apart of the African Diaspora – we ask you respect this – thanks!
We’ll start promptly at 12pm EST so I’d recommend having the zoom app installed on your phone or already setup on your computer/laptop. Have a pair of headphones ready as well as I will be picking a meditation from Liberate and playing the audio directly through zoom so we can all meditate together in sync! This is a test so please give some grace and understanding. There might be some hiccups along the way!
Last, you said you had said you need hope. I’m with you on this which is why it’s so important for us to come together to meditate and be in community. I often find hope in the interactions I have with folks as well as when I get the opportunity to meditate alongside others.
I hope to see you there on the zoom call.
