Juneteenth Freedom Jam
June 18 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
This joyful retreat, facilitated by Dr. Kamilah Majied, will be a relaxing space to recover from racism and rejoice in Blackness. Dr. Michelle Chatman, chair of the CMind board and Founder of the Black Mindfulness Summit, cites the Yoruba expression “suffering ends today.” This wise adage reminds us that we can, using our masterfully creative, meditative, prayerful, playful minds, release suffering at any moment and decide to attend to enjoying our lives whenever and however we please. This is a truth that is known and enacted by Black people everywhere, every day, all day. We celebrate Black Excellence taking center stage in every realm from academics to gymnastics, from poetry to politics. Blackcellence is within us and all around us! Come celebrate it with us!
Guest teachers: Dr. Marisela B. Gomez, Dr. Sará King, Dr. Larry Ward
