SoulPick Presents: Soulstice Speak Easy Potluck

Photographer Monica Justesen

 

In response to recent events we are coming together to laugh, heal, and discuss a movement towards light through a curated group healing session <3. The session includes a group meditation, tarot readings and henna.

We collaborated with Nilly of SoulPick, @NeyonTree, Tatianna Tarot, Natalia, and Reign Apllm who hosted us at her place. 

We were asked to facilitate a guided meditation. 

Nilly had a line up from 2-5p of henna, a group tarot reading, and guided meditation. Little did we know the introductions alone would dominate the 3 hours, which was amazing actually.

The women were asked to give their names and who they are. But it actually took 3 hours to "introduce" everyone.

The women took that opportunity, during introductions, to share their stories, an experience that was burdening, express their yearning for connection with other women, and simply share themselves. 

The facilitators had one plan while the space demanded something else. And it was a beautiful realization, after the fact of-course. 

Eventually, we did conduct a group meditation, called "Preserving Your Light". The objective  is to Become clear on our role during social pain and how to preserve our light. through a guided meditation on the optimism and happiness of children. Then to apply that wisdom to become more clear on our roles during today’s social pain.  

We guided the women to visualize  a specific time in your childhood, which brought about its own emotions and thoughts, to proocess.

The best part about these spaces is connecting with someone's spirit. You meet them and you see one another's soul. No explanations needed, just an organic meeting. 

We'd like to thank Nilly of @SoulPick for creating a space for women to heal, love on one another, and purge. Especially at a time like this. A special thank you to Reign for opening and sharing your space. It set the perfect tone for the event. And lastly, thank you to all the women who bared their souls and trusted us with your story. You're the reason we all exist.
