“Collective Imagination: The Art of Healing Part I” Webinar

Over the last several years, healing justice has become a prominent practice within our movement. The recognition that Black people deserve healing and wholeness is transforming our cultures. Healing justice has become a portal for revolutionary visions of Black freedom. We deserve it. We own it. We must have it! Watch our Healing Justice webinars, for a conversation grounded in sacred practice, Black traditions, and radical freedom.

This month, our theme is “Collective Imagination: The Art of Healing.” We turn our conversation to sacred and luminous practices of creativity and imagination in the healing journeys of Black people. Our healers examine practices of collective imagination and the multiple ways to access Spirit and wholeness through the individual and collective body. We affirm that healthy connections hold spaciousness for healing and love. How do we connect through practices of communal imagination and healing arts? What are some of our sacred healing practices? We highlight practices that can support the transformation of individual and collective grief into collective visions, futures, and liberation for cultivating sovereignty and co-sovereignty.
