C.O.W.S (Concept Of White Supremacy) Radio Show: The Black Steps, Obama and Trump.

Greetings Family,

Here is the recent C.O.W.S (concept of white supremacy) show recording ¬†where I am on the global guest panel every 3rd week of the month. In this session, I am thrilled that Gus chosen to feature my podcast The Black Steps, and I get the opportunity to discuss the link between racism and addiction. We also talk about being abandoned by white ‘friends’ when the subject of racism is raised, along with the Obama’s leaving office and the global reactions to Trump taking over. Click the pic below to listen. It’s dated the 15 January 2017 and the title is the ‘Global Sunday Talk on Racism.’

Peace.

TBS07: Recovery Step 1- Powerlessness And Hope

Step 1. (1)

 

Hey there,

Sidenote…. I admit that I am powerless over the freezing temps out here in London, but have the power to podcast under my heated duvet lol. Sorry, couldn’t resist it. ūüėČ

Now that I’ve got that out of the way, this week I dive into recovery step 1 and adapt the basic principles as they relate to our powerlessness under the system of racism (white supremacy). I love this step because it is the beginning of hope and a new authentic way of being.¬†I also talk about learned helplessness, racial intimacy and the power of scheduling hope into your day.

If I could go back and speak to my former broken self that crawled through my first step one, I would tell her it’s really is going to be OK, and step one is the beginning of the journey to freedom. Things will be a challenge, but I will have an abundance of support, love and blackalicious tools to work the sh*t out of my recovery and thrive. One day at a time.

Enjoy

TBS06:Understanding Racial Pain Pt 2: Attachment And The Family

Weekly show cover

This show is quite a deep one so make yourself a herb tea, take a deep breath and have a seat.

This episode is the second part of a series on 4 layers of racial pain, our internalised white supremacist, the family of origin, our community, and the external collective oppressor.

Last week, the focus was on our internalised white supremacist. Today, I weave the other 3 layers into the connection between slavery, child attachment, and how ‚Äėdisciplining‚Äô our children with violence enables white supremacy‚Äôs mission to kill the souls of our people, and destroys our ability to have healthy adult relationships.

TBS05: Understanding Racial Pain With Mindfulness Part 1

podcast-show-cover-2

Greetings Mindful Yardie’s,¬†I hope the day finds you well.

In today’s show I share on one of four layers of racial pain, the four layers are;

1/ Internalised racism and the relationship with self.

2/ Recycled trauma within our  family of origin

3/ Community pain and the silence, enabling racial codependency which feeds the system.

4/ Oppressive social relationship with the institutions that control and maintain our oppression

Today’s focus is on our internalised white supremacist. I talk openly about the trauma of being black, and the impact this had on my¬†relationships and¬†identity in early recovery with a¬†white sponsor and fellows. There are also lots of tools and nuggets to empower you and help you begin to understand and manage the pain of living under this system. The other 3 layers mentioned will be covered in next week’s show.

In service,

June x

TBS04: Honoring Dr. Welsing and 3 Questions to Recommit To Your Recovery in 2017.

 

podcast-show-cover-2

Happy New Year Mindful Yardie’s! Welcome to 2017!

Today’s show honor’s the 1st anniversary of the death of Dr Francis Cress-Welsing and how her book ‘The Isis Papers’¬†relates to the honesty required for taking the first step in recovery. I also share 3 important questions to ask yourself in order to stay empowered throughout the year, and beyond.

I am so excited about this year because I’ve been working really hard to get my experience, hope and tools out of my brain and into various formats for you to use in your own growth process. As you know I’ve already done a couple of podcasts, but I’m now ready to go much deeper with the content in relation to 12 step recovery. I am conscious of not wanting to just share about racism, but also the steps it takes to understand and maintain racial sobriety. The 12 step recovery process is where I started and continue to live in the solution for well being and counter racist mastery. As a result, I have also renamed the podcast, The Black Steps to reflect this content direction.

Enjoy!
