Art is a Natural Medicine. 
The first time I was exposed to art as a therapy, I was 11 years old and I was resisting to see a psychologist after my mother's worries for the emotional repercussions of my parent's separation on my art. She saw that my paintings became dark and agressive, with only reds and blacks and that my dress code was following the same pattern. 
If nature expresses itself through colour, I was entering adolescence with a profound pain in my heart, without knowing how to express it. 
Then I was introduced to making a collage by taking images of magazines and creating a picture that reflected all my feelings. 
It was incredible. I never knew that I could express myself so safely without needing words. 
Then with time, art remained in the back of my life as I mistreated myself and misused the plant medicines in a city that only teaches to consume. 
Then, when I arrived to the unceded Coast Salish territories, and more specifically, when life took me to I sit in ceremony in this gathering called the Wheel of Life, I realized that indigenous elders don't differentiate between art and ceremony, neither art and medicine. And it has all been coming together like pieces of a puzzle to birth the realization that we are Natural Medicine. 
But this is a choice. Every experience can facilitate a transformation within us, only if we choose. 
Though, today, the so-called "free will" is a fallacy: - when our bellies are filled with chemicals that don't allow our brains to function, and neither think properly, -meanwhile our eyes and ears are stuffed with lies through the mass produced media, -and our health injected with poisons to avoid the discomfort that our bodies express as curative crisis, 
we are not given the opportunity to Be 
So in order to Be, we need to revolt to the invisibilized systems of internal oppresion and self-destruction by decolonizing our interiors and cleansing ourselves by letting go of everything we are not and art is a powerful way to express our true selves.

Walking the Corn Pollen Path
馃尳
Today I rose at the most important time of day, right before dawn, to gather t谩d铆d铆铆n (corn pollen). This little act is so small yet so significant for me as a humxn reclaiming my ancestry, reclaiming my traditions as Din茅. T谩d铆d铆铆n is the source of all living beings in the first, second, and third world, and it reminds us where we are going: the fourth world. After gathering t谩d铆d铆铆n I took a pinch between my thumb and index finger, faced East, placed some t谩d铆d铆铆n on the spiral on top of my head, where we incarnate into our bodies, and then said my rising prayers to the East. I took a deep breath and could feel this ancient knowledge integrate into my body at the molecular level. What was left of the t谩d铆d铆铆n, I put on my tongue and then sprinkled the rest in the direction of the East.
馃尳
I am so grateful for this naad膮虂膮虂 (corn). It is teaching me beyond what I could ever imagine. I am grateful for this opportunity to re)member/reclaim my traditions as a Din茅 womxn. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

The real revolution is caring for ourselves and those in our communities. Not in a capitalist, consumer sense but in spiritual and emotional senses. We have to completely disengage from the system wherever + whenever we can. That means growing our own food if possible, making our own art and media, coming up with solutions for problems that effect our communities (things like homelessness, child abuse etc). We need to build + create a society based on love. The old methods of protesting + violence to start revolutions are outdated. In order to build a new earth we need to use new methods. There's nothing new or revolutionary about black and brown bodies being put on the line and subject to police brutality.

If we all truly started caring for each other, holding space for each other, sharing our resources and voices with each other- well, that would be a revolution! We can make activism and social change fun and enjoyable, filled with art and joy and love. 
Throw out your TV, turn off your radio, stop aspiring to the standards set by our oppressive colonial society. Create your art, your music, your books- publish them all yourselves, share them and watch the world change 馃尰

We back at it and rolling out more of the artists for 鈥淭he Visual Life of Social Affliction鈥 (VLOSA) exhibition opening this Thursday! This Small Axe Project brought out plenty hard hitters, and Florine Demosthene is no exception, but her work is truly exceptional in and of itself. 鈥

The Haitian American artist (born in the US and having grown up between New York and Port au Prince, Demosthene) trained at Parsons the New School for Design in New York for her BFA, and received her MFA from Hunter College at the City University of New York. She has exhibited widely, the US, Caribbean, UK, Europe, and the African continent. She has also been the recipient of a Tulsa Artist Fellowship, Arts Moves Africa Grant, and a Joan Mitchell Foundation grant, as well as participating in residencies in the US, UK, Slovakia, Ghana, and Tanzania. The artist currently works between Accra, New York, and Johannesburg. 鈥

Demosthene鈥檚 work is magic. She brings forth these fleshy, proud, confronting, spectres of women from ink, oil stick and glitter. Making skins for spirits that are familiar and foreign simultaneously, they feel like a meditation on Caribbean womanhood, on soulhood. It gives us some visual language to think around displacement, healing, and histories of loss, for Demosthene, 鈥淚t is like trying to locate yourself in this history and you don鈥檛 even know what this history is鈥. The violence we deal with in the Caribbean, that we see in Demosthene鈥檚 work, is sometimes like this: difficult to place, not always entirely in the present, a ghost out of place in the present. It takes on other forms, like erasure, and as Nijah Cunningham describes Demosthene鈥檚 practice, 鈥渟he puts her creative energies into reimagining the lived experiences of forgotten and discarded black women in history鈥. 鈥

Powerful stuff. 鈥

See this work and more at the opening of VLOSA this Thursday, August 22nd at 7:00pm! All openings are FREE and OPEN to the general public, so have a drink with us, eat, and discuss this magic. 鉁

A reminder as you head out into your day. This is BIPOC, WOC wellness and mental health. 
You do not need validation, permission, anything from the oppressor.

Our traditions, our language, our culture, our joy, our peace. Reclaim it all. That is how we achieve wellness. That is how we achieve liberation.

Our ancestors are waiting for you to reconnect & remember. They speak to you, if you listen. They've paved the way for us. They've fought for our freedom. All we have to do is lose is our mental & spiritual chains.

I am here to remind you that you have all you need & you do not need their validation. Show up as your FULL Black, Indigenous self because that is what will set you free.

We are our own sacred medicine.

What approval are you letting go of today?

P. S. You don't need it馃槉馃挅. They conditioned you to feel this way to keep you in control.

Check it out! Our SECOND ad for our Vegan Mexican Food booklet is being advertised in La Prensa Sonoma! We're hoping to reach more of our community to highlight Mexican foods that do not include animal ingredients, while also modeling that it is possible to eat vegan and still incorporate comfort foods. 鉅

I trust in the magical emergence of another way of living on planet earth. One where we center love, care, nurturance, and Spirit. Where our collective story as a species is not one of constant exploitation and violence in order to amass wealth for a select few but where our story is one of sacred interdependence and care for all, human and nonhuman alike. To be quite frank, the collective story that capitalism is telling is pretty fucking bleak and dark. If you're looking for me, I'll be over here with my queer/femme/black/indigenous/brown/nonbinary/gendernonconforming witches soothsaying and visioning new stories with them! Will you join us? .

Many of us are raised to be 鈥減roductive.鈥 How many times have you wondered what this productivity means? What does it mean to you to be productive? What does it mean to you to be an achiever? To have accolades and accomplishments that you can be proud of?
.
So many of us lack pride in our achievements thus far for whatever reason. Perhaps we are always viewing ourselves as just one accomplishment short of being 鈥渆nough.鈥 This contributes to shame within ourselves and shame to the people we perceive we owe something to. After all, we are privileged with the opportunity to be productive achievers while so many other people in the world 鈥渟uffer.鈥
.
Do not fall trapped to this line of thinking. All of us, any of us, who are human beings, and involved with society, are woven into the systems of production in some capacity or the other. All of us are slaves to the capitalistic ventures of the wealthiest profiteers. So long as we participate with money in an economy, we continue to subjugate ourselves into the very system we so laboriously contribute. This is the irony of it all: we voluntarily enslave ourselves. .
My challenge to all of us is to increase our awareness. I challenge us to be mindful of our dollars, mindful of our labor, and mindful of our humanity. I challenge us to honor our energy levels and respect our emotions. This is what grounds us back to our humanity. We are not simply machines or robots. We have souls and minds and personalities!

Namaste. What does half moon pose mean to me? Lately I鈥檓 deeply questioning how to decolonize my body. Which means I am re-parenting myself and recognizing unhealthy mental patterns that have been and continue to be imbued into my psyche, manifesting as spiritual grenades that leave me fragmented. I am compassionately scratching out the roots that an entire society of colonizers left in my rich soil so that I can return to the thing that they could never quite reach: my true Self. Which brings me back to half moon pose. Yoga has also been colonized and I admitted to my yoga teacher trainees last night that all of my senior yoga teachers have been white (I didn鈥檛 have access to or awareness of BIPOC teachers). And now that I have connected with desi yoga teachers I am awakening to the real fact that yoga in the US has also been colonized and strewn with land mines of misinformation like a bad game of telephone stuffed into an ego sandwich. So I鈥檓 making it my business to establish relationships with BIPOC teachers like @curvyyogime @susannabarkataki @lakshmedmad @shantiwithin @yogaisdeadpodcast @tejalyoga @yogawalla and more. I am greeting everything that I think I know with genuine curiosity. I am on an earnest quest of un-learning in an effort to truly honor my body and this beautiful 8 limbed path of yoga.

I鈥檓 an archaeologist by training, something that is often met with 鈥渙ohs鈥 and 鈥渁aahs鈥. It鈥檚 a cool job, one that reconnects me to Mexico often. But archaeology, particularly its touristic side, is a colonialist and capitalist endeavor. One that has seen the erasure and dismissal of the living descendants of ancient cultures we are so enamored with. Murders of whole towns, of parties opposed to the money making expansion of sites. It鈥檚 a frequent government tactic.  One that led to the recent murder of Carmela Parral. And before you jump to ideas of corrupt Mexican governments, know that Canada and the US have got their fingerprints alllll over this money game. Remember this, when you take your next vacation selfie at Tikal, or Chichen Itz谩, or fuck, even Macchu Picchu now.

Colonization is a real and present monster who benefits from people thinking it lives only in history books. Colonization is alive and still trying to destroy Indigenous people and their land. .
We are not only mad about the past. We have righteous anger about the future they are continuing to try to steal from us. Colonization is here and now. Hawai'i, Puerto Rico, the Indigenous people being held in ICE facilities, and every Nation on Turtle Island are fighting an active, current, and present battle. 鈥

Opposite the system is still the system.

Transformation within binary and duality is merely rebellion. It's not out of the box. It exists on the same continuum. To truly generate shift, we have to realize there is no box. When we can do that, we outcreate the system.

Private land is a funny thing; an alien and distasteful concept for #indigenous people. That someone would draw lines around God鈥檚 gift to creation and say 鈥渢his is mine and no one else鈥檚鈥 was viewed as the poster child of #colonizer arrogance, insanity, and godlessness - no matter how many bibles they beat us with
.
In 17th century #Maryland, the Calvert family detailed in trans-oceanic correspondence an explicit plan to wrest every acre of Yagaokanhagaree from its #Piscataway inhabitants, my ancestors. They armed our northern enemies on the one hand while offering us fortifications and protections on English manors; we found our lands occupied by Europeans upon returning to them, walled off as private property and protected by laws that didn鈥檛 apply to us
.
Today, you鈥檒l find @visitmaryland celebrating #whitewashed history as a 鈥渃radle of religious freedom,鈥 replete with a Religious Freedom Trail that, if honesty prevailed, would called The Highway of Stolen Nations; continental Europe offered safer, easier places for White folks to wax Papist
.
Private property has been one of the most ironically effective tools employed by the powerful to dispossess Red and Black alike of desirable lands: reservations, allotments, heirs property. Land held in common is difficult to pry away. But Native people forced onto faraway, privately and individually-owned allotments - 鈥渉ome鈥 to them as an acre on the Moon could be 鈥渉ome鈥 to you - were easy targets. Many would sell their moon rocks for a handful of dollars and a pile of whiskey to dull the pain of having lost everything, everyone that mattered to them
.
It鈥檚 that history of individual vulnerability that informs our rejection of colonizer farm ethic: solitude, grit, independence, privacy, individualism. There鈥檚 no need to repeat the mistakes of the past
.
Our Kickstarter is less than 10% away from putting a slice of American agriculture back on the road toward collective strength. Have a look at the link in our bio to learn more. And as always, please share

Yes, back in the 90s one of the greatest leaders of Native resistance was reduced to a brand of malt liquor. It was ultimately banned in some states (from protests led by AIM) but I couldn't find any information as to it's current status.

Im Veranstaltungskalender und auf den Stra脽en der Stadt Hannover wird YAKARI gro脽 beworben. Die Pferde-Show f眉r die ganze Familie findet vom 22.08. bis zum 01.09. auf dem Sch眉tzenfest statt, danach in weiteren deutschen St盲dten. Auch bei euch?

Welche Veranstaltungen werden von @hannoverwaltung beworben, und erhalten damit eine gro脽e Reichweite und welche nicht? Geh枚rt und gesehen werden 鈥 das ist @yakari_pferdeshow nun sicher. Dass es sich hierbei um die Ausschlachtung eines V枚lkermordes handelt, bleibt ungesagt! 鈥濿as ist das Problem, die Kinder sollen doch auch etwas 眉ber andere 'V枚lker' lernen?鈥
Eine diversit盲tssensible Bildung finden wir nat眉rlich super, aber bitte keine kolonialistischen L眉gen! DIE 鈥濱nd*aner鈥 gab es so schlie脽lich nie, sie sind eine rein europ盲ische Erfindung.

Die Indigene Bev枚lkerung der Amerikas war nie eine gro脽e Gruppe, teilte nie Kultur, Sprache oder Selbst- und Weltbild. Von nomadischen bis sesshaften Lebensweisen, von Ackerbau bis saisonalen Jagdgebieten, von kleinen Dorfgemeinschaften bis riesigen Reichen die sich 眉ber die Fl盲che mehrerer heutiger L盲nder erstreckten, das menschliche Leben auf den Amerikanischen Kontinenten war so vielf盲ltig organisiert wie 眉berall auf der Welt.

Das YAKARI Spektakel, so die Veranstaltenden, finde im 鈥瀏r枚脽ten Ind*anerzelt der Welt鈥 statt! Europas Dominanz- und Herrschaftsphantasien werden bereits in solchen kleinen Erw盲hnungen deutlich. Diese romantische Vorstellung der 'naturnahen' und 'primitiv-gl眉cklichen' Indigenen verschleiert nicht nur die diversen Geschichten der Kontinente sondern verharmlost und legitimiert auch die Gewalt und die Genozide die von den Kolonialisten ver眉bt wurden.

Sehr makaber ist daher auch, dass die Veranstaltung in Hannover auf dem SCH脺TZENfest stattfindet. Es waren die Sch眉sse europ盲ischer Sch眉tzen, die 1890 mit dem 鈥歁assaker am Wounded Knee鈥 endg眉ltig den Widerstand der Indigenen Bev枚lkerungen brachen 鈥 ein Zeichen brutaler Verdr盲ngung, eines V枚lkermordes!

Slow down this week. Start now if you can. Focus on the rhythmic nature of your breath in and out, in and out. The deliciousness of a full belly inhale...exhale...and pause. Inhale...exhale...and pause.
...
What sacredness do you find in this space? May you find some, however you know it to be.

Repeat it until it starts to feel true.

If we live our life according to the standards of the white supremacist colonial patriarchy, we will never be enough. But, the good news is we don't need the colonizer's validation.

Stop looking for permission and validation from those who benefit from your shackles.

You are meant to be free.

You are meant to be whole.

You are worthy as you are.

You are enough.

I hope you can settle into this ancestral truth.

Ancestors rejoice when you remember you are as you are meant to be.

Why is that so hard for some of us to grasp? if you don鈥檛 know who you are, how can you know where you鈥檙e going? That just means you鈥檙e going along with the colonized program.

This land 馃嚠馃嚦 has contributed so much to humanity. Pictured here is Dhamek Stupa which marks the site where Buddha taught for the first time after enlightenment. But ahimsa (nonviolence) is not just a value we mention as part of our indigenous Dharmic legacy, it is an action. Democracy is not just a label either; it鈥檚 system upheld by every member of society. Independence Day isn鈥檛 just a holiday, it is a call to action.  #decolonize #india #independence #kashmir #feminisminindia #buddhism #buddha #sarnath #uttarpradesh #independenceday

Stage 2 (Nepantla): You are catapulted into nepantla as you are jerked from your familiar and safe terrain. In this liminal, transitional space, suspended between shifts, you are two people, split between before and after. Nepantla, where the outer boundaries of the mind's inner life meet the outer world of reality, is a zone of possibility. you experience reality as fluid, expanding and contracting. In nepantla you are exposed, open to other perspectives, more readily able to access knowledge derived from inner feelings, imaginal states, and outer events, and to "see through" them with a mindful, holistic awareness. Seeing through human acts both individual and collective allows you to examine the ways you construct knowledge, identity, and reality, and explore how some of your/other's constructions violate other people's ways of knowing and living. - 7 Stages of Conocimiento--Gloria Anzaldua http://areasontokeepgoing.blogspot.com/2011/11/7-stages-of-conocimiento.html (Art by @andonella)

I guess sometimes these things need to be said. In two instances today, I've been sent material from white women, in the holistic mental health and spirituality/mystic worlds, that are choosing to ignore the voices oclf Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC). Not only are they choosing to ignore the ways in which they are causing harm, but they become more stubborn & adamant about their stance.

Wow!

All I can say to this is that this is a colonizer mentality, when you believe you are superior to & know better than BIPOC.

I've been thinking about whether decolonial work needs to involve White people & today Spirit gave me my answer. The answer is yes. White folx need to undo the mentality that they know best, that their view is most important, that their experience & opinions are more important than ours. That their profit, their comfort, their life is more important than ours.

I didn't plan to write this today, but sometimes you just have to go with what Spirit & ancestors show you for our collective healing and liberation. I always remain open to Spirit. It is in this flow, fluidity that the real work happens not in set, fixed plans. So, I hope this inspires you to do the same. Flow, not force. And, honor the experiences
of BIPOC. 
For my BIPOC, don't get your healing, your spirituality, your education from white folx refusing to validate your experiences. You are worth so much more than that. You shouldn't have to fight so hard to have to have your healers center your experiences as BIPOC. You shouldn't have to convince your healers of all the ways they are upholding white supremacy. That is harm not healing.

You're either for us or you're not. Some white folx are doing the hard internal work & I so appreciate them bc we need all of us for collective liberation. Some white folx stay denying our reality. Decolonizing also means not wasting your time & energy with those white folx insistent on denying your humanity. Dije lo que dije.

Try to educate, but don't allow them to steal your peace. That's part of the work of colonialism & oppression. 馃挴

Tell me how you've encountered this colonizer mentality, sharing experiences helps to liberate us.
