For Black, Indigenous & People of Color, our ancestors have always understood themselves as Empaths, Healers & energetic beings. They utilized ritual, meditation, visualization, intention setting (a.k.a. praying), plant allies and literally any tools at their disposal to defend & re-energize against white supremacy & colonization. As modern day descendants of experts at survival, Black, Indigenous & People of Color are gifted Empaths, Healers, Telepaths, Seers, Psychics etc. Learning how to manage your skills benefits your physical health & emotional health through validation that what you're experiencing is 'real' and learning how to communicate using your energetic body, in addition to your physical body. Empath Skills for BIPoC is a workshop where participants will learn about: Energy & Common Traits of Empaths What exactly is an Aura/Energetic Field How Energy Gets Stuck in your Aura How to Cleanse your own Aura How to Maintain Energetic Boundaries Come thru for the after party!
