    “When people of color are together, there can be healing. We can reclaim parts of ourselves that have been repressed. We can redefine ourselves and support one another in embracing who we are.”

    The opening excerpt comes from the marvelous Kelsey Blackwell, a member of the Berkeley Shambhala Community. Her article, titled “Why People of Color Need Spaces Without White People”, can be read here: https://arrow-journal.org/why-people-of-color-need-spaces-without-white-people/

    Mei (pronoun: they/them) lives K’jipuktuk and is a lifelong learner of politicized somatics and mindfulness. They have an abiding interest in connecting what happens at levels like mind, body and relationship, to what happens at larger levels like collective, culture and land, for the sake of healing and transformation. For this reason, they value spaces created for and by racialized groups and People of Color (POC) and are moved to begin weekly closed-space sittings for POC this January.
