We cannot as a company claim to promote Sacred Sovereignty or Ecstatic Embodiment or living in the Beauty of one’s purpose without addressing the violence of systemic racism that plagues all of us.
Unlearning racism is a process and a practice and it is beautiful. It benefits us all. If violence or oppression is happening to someone, it can happen to anyone.
It is my deepest hope that this list will be a starting place and resource to listen, learn, and reconsider choices. Lives immediately depend on non-BIPOC people learning this information and acting accordingly.
Like many, I too am but a student and evolving practitioner of anti-racism. So please feel free to offer feedback or recommendations in the form at the bottom of this post.
With Love & Solidarity.....
PS I’d like to extend a big juicy thank you to Dena, David, Jess, Jess, Laura, Destinie, Linda, Julie, and Taylor for your love and support and guidance in making this list possible. Love you.
