OMG I am so excited, I have to tell you about this recent win! It’s been confirmed this week that I will now be a regular monthly guest on the global panel for the C.O.W.S Radio show with Gus T. Renegade. I have been invited on for the last few months and I really enjoyed it, so this next step makes complete sense. This is a huge opportunity to serve more and spread the message of hope and racial sobriety. I will also be working with Gus on the Isis Papers book club project which is really exciting. I am humbled to be in a position to do this and I’m intrigued to see how this abundant, empowering adventure from RA will continue to manifest. You can keep track of all the radio programs I attend in the ‘Radio Events’ category.
Thanks for sharing this journey with me.
Greetings! I hope the day finds you well.
I’ve had some lovely messages from some of you on social media, and thought it would be nice to share them here. It’s always great getting feedback because this work is not easy, and I’m always mindful to deliver my best practices with truth and tenderness. When I get the feedback I do, it’s a great reminder that I am on the right track with my vision to serve you. Here are the screen shots, I particularly love the one written in patois. Have a blessed and beautiful day. 😊
Greetings fam, This Is A Yardie First!
I was asked to be part of an international group of callers from outside the US on the Concept of White Supremacy radio show (C.O.W.S) with Gus T. Renegade. It was his monthly Sunday global talk about Racism. I really enjoyed being on the panel and I talked a lot more than I thought I would considering I was so nervous beforehand. I was so conscious of talking too much at one point, I had to shut myself up! We talked about Black History Month, racism and black parenting etc. I also was able to share for the first time about my upcoming book club launch next year honouring Dr Francis Cress- Welsing. You can register your interest at www.theisispapersbookclub.com It is terrifying doing all this stuff for the first time, but I also, absolutely love this process and the transformation I am experiencing being more visible as a black business women. Thank you all for your support and here is the interview recorded on Sunday 16 October 2016. The title of the show ‘Global Sunday Talk on Racism’ here is the replay.
I’ve been going through a lot of content recently and realise I’ve been in my perfectionism around my blog instead of having fun with it and posting more of my journey. There have been so many awesome things that have happened since starting my business in June and I’ve decided to share a lot more of it with you. I’ll be posting the random throwbacks as I dig them out.
This first throwback was a powerful little event hosted by Nadine Dash called ‘I am potential’ There were some amazing young speakers who provoked thought and reminded us that all that negative stereotype we often see in the media is not the truth about our amazing community. It’s always great to connect with those creating positive change. Here I am with motivational speaker DrG aka Gersham Allen.
Hey Mindful Yardies, I hope the day finds you well? I came across this campaign recently which is really close to my heart and had to share it with you to see if you can help?
Training to become a psychotherapist is an incredibly difficult path. Not only because you’re required to bare your soul as part of the process, but as a black person, you also have to navigate the racial dynamics inside a system which still has a long way to go in serving the needs of people of colour.
To address this issue, Eugene Ellis, founded the Black and Asian Therapists Network (BAATN). The project provides mutual support for practicing therapists, along with an amazing platform to meet the therapeutic needs of our community. I have used their services both personally and professionally as part of my ongoing psychotherapy training. It has been an amazing community to safely explore and identify with others regarding the challenges of racism inside these learning institutions.
In building the future of BAATN, the project needs your support today to address the high drop-out rate of students in training by offering an ‘Each One Teach One’ mentorship programme. The project has already been running for a few years but needs a boost and there are only a few days left to pledge!
Please give what you can, our community needs to support these new therapists so we can provide the services you deserve!
