JOY LINKS for June 2020

June Joy Links – Black Lives Matter

This month’s spotlight is on Heather Salmon – a generous, compassionate, and dynamic leader of consciousness. I’m blessed to call her a dear friend and brilliant business collaborator. (We lead online cleanse retreats together.)  Founder of The Black Swan Mystery School, Heather and her partner Donnie offer teachings of the Essene sevenfold path of peace as well as the ritual magic on the path of Isis and other paths of light and truth. Heather and Donnie offer programming in-person (in Maui) as well as internet-based training and sound healing events and more … check out their site and their new vegan cookbook!

The Black Lives Matter movement is moving me. Moving me to learn, get resourced, take action, and share. This Joy LINKS is dedicated to Black Lives Matter links.

What rings very true to me was articulated by author and historian Ibram X. Kendi who claims there’s no such thing as being 'not racist.' He explains that even inaction (simply being ‘not racist’) in the face of racism is, in fact, a form of racism.

With that, below are Black Lives Matter Joy LINKS for June.

Where Do We Go from Here? is a profoundly thought-provoking documentary with Oprah Winfrey. She speaks directly with Black thought leaders, activists and artists about systematic racism.

Marie Folio posted an anti-racism resource guide that offers ideas for business owners to make a difference at work. Her guide links to more resource pages developed by people of color. It is full of books, donation options, and ways to take action.

Each week, racial healing expert Milagros Phillips guides us through a special topic on racial trauma and healing, offering historical context and practical tools to help you on your healing process. She teaches online every Monday.

And Still I Rise, Maya Angelo’s life story sets context while highlighting a woman of power, foresight, and creativity. Learn more with this trailer.

My friend (and subscriber to this list) Tom McSteen is the founder of Sacred Discourse. He is offering three online courses around racism for shite people.

My husband follows sports news, so he is updating me on the impact of Black Lives Matter in the professional sport’s industry. Emmanuel Chinedum Acho, a former linebacker who played in the National Football League and is currently working as an analyst for Fox Sports 1 started a YouTube series, Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man.

She the People elevates the vision, common, and voice of women of color grounded in love, justice, and belonging. Join women of color across the country in making our voice and votes matter in 2020 and beyond.

 

Warmly,

Joy
