What We Do
The Song Remedy is both a healing circle and a place in which we use our HE(ART) to transform our pain into medicine. We honor our ancestors by pouring libations for those that have come before us, we honor all the wisdom they have to bestow upon us. We remember their ways, their practices, their love and we connect with them, for they are us and we are them.
Music has always been my healing place and I feel my ancestors have guided me to share that passion with our community. In our collective healing we dive deeper and learn new things from one another as we let spirit guide. It is my calling to see this type of healing accessible and available to all our people. I believe like black love, healing our community is a revolutionary act.
To uplift the power of The Remedy -- an opportunity to support Brittany Tanner of BE-IMAGINATIVE Collective. As the goals of The Remedy are in direct connection with the goals of BE. BE is centering the work of individual collective members hoping to pour back into them what they have poured into BE. All while co-creating spaces to continue including mothers, families and collective members of BE-IMAGINATIVE. I want to go far, together with all of you.
Cultivating sacred spaces for ourselves to feel seen, heard, held, loved and valued by our community is the remedy to heal our collective pain. When we are not at ease then we manifest (dis)ease and we deserve longevity. This is why we organize spaces to heal and we heal in order to organize, so that we can center our full humanity as we disrupt all systems of oppression that have robbed us of our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual wellness.
The Remedy, for me, is about processing the weight of intergenerational trauma and opening ourselves up to intergenerational healing. It is about naming the wounds that get passed down across every generation of our lineage, and leaning deeper into the possibilities for restoring the fractured bonds within our families. It is about doing this ancestral recovery work in community with other women of color, other families of color, who are equally invested in wholeness, in wellness, in healing. And what makes The Remedy so special is that we explore alternative tools for creative communal care that make it safe to do this heavy work, so we know we are not alone in it.
In the spirit of cycle breaking, we are co-creating a space for us to come and heal, grieve, and just BE in order to resist systems of oppression that consistently attack our mind, body, and spirit. We are breaking cycles of toxic family culture, generational harm, and ancestral trauma that no longer serve our healing and purpose.
