It is certain, in any case, that ignorance, allied with power, is the most ferocious enemy justice can have.

Hey Friends,

I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the beautiful weather and what is left of summer. Already we are at the end of August, where did the time go??? 

Just before settling in to write my newsletter, I had a great conversion with a dear friend where we shared our feelings about the current temperament surrounding the antiracist movement. The common sentiment that arose from our discussion was that we both felt it was important with this work to keep the momentum going. For those that took part in my summer book club, you will remember us discussing the term “antiracist” as being not fixed. We can be antiracist one moment and racist the next. Which is why it is important for us to affirm our intentions every day.

The above picture which I’ve shared with you is my granddaughter, Reign Mari and one of my many reasons for continuing to provide opportunities to educate ourselves about racism and ensuring that it is dismantled and eliminated for future generations. So without further ado, continue reading to find out what our next steps are! 

One ❤️
I hope you are all as excited as I am to roll up our sleeves and dive into our fall book club selection. Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents,
by Isabel Wilkerson
My interest in reading this book, besides all of the amazing reviews, stemmed from a book suggested to me a few years back called A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry. This was the first time I gained a better understanding of the caste system in India. This book struck an eerily familiar chord that left me wanting to know more. In Caste, Isabel Wilkerson compares racism in America with various aspects of the caste system in India and Nazi Germany. 

You know the drill. Go out and pick up the book today, I wanted to give consideration to those who are managing kids returning to school and/or home schooling schedules, so we will have a little over six weeks to read the book.  We will get together via zoom October 18, 2020 at 7:30 pm EST for some discussion.

In order to hold ourselves accountable with our intentions we must follow up with action.  To register visit or click here. Once registered, you will receive an email with a suggested reading schedule to keep on task and some questions to spark discussion.

There are so many clinical studies and scientific evidence to support the fact that meditation is good for you, so there is no need for me to state the obvious. I will however share that my meditation practice has been a part of my life and my healing for the past ten years and I attribute very much of who I am today to it. I don’t see meditation as a “thing” that you either like or don’t like. It is an opportunity to know yourself better and who wouldn’t want that? 

If you are interested in knowing and exploring more, I will be holding a weekly meditation group on
Thursdays 8:00 - 8:30 pm. 
Cost: $10
*50% of the registration fee will be donated to organizations doing antiracist work. 

Registration Opens Sept. 1, 2020
First Session Sept. 3, 2020

Tomorrow, Thursday August 27th will be my last class at Reverie Farm. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to take your practice outside into the beautiful garden at Reverie. What better way to end your practice than with the view of a beautiful sunset.
