Black Feminist Breathing Chorus Meditation #4: Black Women Are Inherently Valuable

26 05 2014

Black Women Are Inherently Valuable

Combahee River Collective

On Memorial Day I am remembering the world-reorganizing truth that Black Women Are Inherently Valuable.  Today’s mantra affirms our breathing.   Today’s collage uses the cover of the Combahee River Collective’s 1979 pamphlet in response to the murder of 12 Black women in Boston in 3 months as a centered element for remembering the urgency of love.

If you are not already on the email list to receive the emails daily in your inbox during our 3 week experience join on in here. 

In order to keep the air moving and the energy gathering each meditation is available for three days after it is posted.  If you would like to get eternal access to the meditations streaming and downloaded to use for your personal upliftment or to share with your organization or students you can become a monthly sustainer of the Eternal Summer of Black Feminist Mind at a level that feels generously sustainable to you.

Or if you want to move the meditation magic forward you can make a donation towards the scholarship fund for the Black Feminist Breathing Retreat (see more below).  Donations of $25-100 give you eternal access to the streaming meditations on the site and donations of 101 or more give you access to streaming AND downloads of the meditations as audio files.

If breathing in chorus through this virtual experience feels great, imagine what it would feel like to breathe together in person!!!  On July 4th weekend 2014 we will be gathering for the Black Feminist Breathing Retreat in Magnolia, Mississippi at the Flowering Lotus Meditation Center.

Here is a video that includes some of the power of our breathing together at last year’s Combahee Pilgrimage Retreat:
