Saafyr Status Update:
For the last 3 years, I have been pioneering a workshop called Radical Self-Love Letters. This idea began as an activity in an event I co-hosted for singles looking to give themselves love around Valentine’s Day. It was such a powerful experience to help the community who showed up ground in their bodies, ease their mind, and open their hearts to what they really wanted to say about love. I had the attendees stuff and seal the envelopes and hand them to me so that I could mail it to them when they least expected it. This a way to help receive their own love instead of looking for it externally. It was well received! Little did I know, over time, this concept would turn around to become a source of powerful healing medicine during this heavy time of solitude.
Since then, I have hosted 5 online workshops on RSLL with organizations such as Dunamis Boston, Creatives of Color Boston, Survivor Theatre Project (Juneteenth: Letter to Our Ancestors), and D.O.V.E. (Deaf Overcoming Violence Through Empowerment). It has been so rewarding to see people get excited to reconnect with their inner-dialogue with more acceptance. This year, my goal is to not only redesign this workshop to match the in-person experience it once had, but to have it accessible to everyone at anytime!
FIRST, I have been looking at the gaps and flaws of the workshop. The number of attendees dropped down, the access became difficult, and my last workshop in December was canceled. It left me DEVASTATED with shame and guilt for not doing enough. When really, I had not fully embodied what it means to be radical and love myself at the same time. This showed up in my life by way of ending long-term career goals, batting sickness and diseases, and discovering my co-dependency with friends, family, and romantic partnership. I am taking space to heal. Problem solving from the inside out, and not the other way around.
I am ready for permanent changes.
I decided to deepen my study and relationship to the phrase RADICAL ACCEPTANCE. It is putting me on a real good groove of self-care, and I am discovering new ways to approach love from different angles. Embracing serenity has been key. Healing is not linear. My process is like a spiderweb. It is said in Ifa, that there is power in the web-weaving of our joys and pain.
Surrendering attachments is rapidly bringing in abundance of new wisdom. Before I can launch RSLL again, I will continue my daily practice through isolation, shadow work, grief ritual, communing with ancestors, reading Radical Dharma, and of course, WRITING in all my notebooks about how I truly desire to embody my art, my craft, my message.
Radical Acceptance is the path towards least resistance. Sharing my story helps me heal my wounds. The concept of being creative with Radical Acceptance is directly connected to social and psychological healing. I am working to be a better me so I can help you be a better you too. I am beyond grateful to have you all part of my life in this present moment. How can you help?
