BGIO Holistic: Bringing Light to Our Darkness — November 30, 2018

35.00

At Black Girl In Om, we create space for women of color to breathe easy. BGIO Holistic is our newest wellness gathering connected to the expansive definition of wellbeing and we’re proud to be in year three of holding safe, sacred space for all of us to connect, heal, and love individually and collectively. With varying themes and programs, we invite you to venture deeper into your wellness journey with an affirming community and guide. At BGIO Holistic: Bringing Light to Our Darkness with Chetna Mehta, we’ll expand awareness of parts of ourselves that we might leave in the dark, that we hide or forget; parts of ourselves that long for us and our loving attention. With tools in expressive drawing, embodiment & mindfulness, we’ll bring light to a shadow, give it space to show its face, allow some safe release, and embrace ourselves together.

This workshop includes:

  • Psycho-education on the practice of shadow work as a channel for self-awareness, acceptance and wellness

  • A safe place to show up, share and be non-judgmentally seen by others in community

  • Art supplies for expressive drawing

  • Guidance for radical self-reflection in meditation and embodiment

  • A visually affirmative art piece to take home with you

The gathering begins promptly at 6:30 p.m, and ends at 8:30 p.m. This gathering is led by Chetna. She is a folk mixed media artist and mystic, mental wellness consultant, and creator of mosaiceye.
