Bring food to share and if you have them lemons, honey and fresh flowers!

Inspired by Ntozake Shange’s brilliant novel Sassafrass, Cypress and Indigo, I present to you INDIGO NIGHT SCHOOL (aka night-time is the right time). We will be convening on the Fridays closest to this season’s new moons into Spring for evening long rituals based on the magical remedies, recipies and rituals of the healer-girl sister in the novel, our beloved Indigo. This is a special sacred space for grown black warrior healers who identify as black women and/or black two-spirit, twinspirit, gatekeeper or genderqueer folks.

Please join me in participating in two more sessions of luxurious, fragrant, nourishing evening rituals where we can set our intentions, support each other and bask in the brilliance of a Black Feminist literary legacy!!!!

This month’s session, during sexual assault awareness month is a specific space of sanctuary for those of us who have survived and co-survived gendered violence structured around 12 year old Indigo’s healing ritual that she invents after someone in her community attempts to assault her.

If you can bring lemons, flowers, or honey, and any food to share, they will be much appreciated!
