This work centers the voices, art & narratives of Indigenous folks, Black folks, communities of color,

the LGBTQIA community & all those otherwise marginalized, excluded or forgotten.

Your art is sacred.

Your voice is sacred.

Your existence is sacred.

This space is your altar.

Song: Hungry Heart - Alysha Brilla

Deep gratitude to Alysha for allowing the use of her beautiful song!
It helped to seamlessly weave together the message of this video.

My deepest & heart felt love goes to all the bright spirits that shared their essence & unapologetic joy
to make this video possible.

Joy is in our nature & will always be our birthright.
Joy is radical & healing!

when we allow our awareness to open to the beauty in all things

in all moments

within all beings

and within ourselves

our hearts are filled with gratitude for life's many blessings

we recognize that we are our ancestors' dreams & walk with them beside us

we reawaken & reclaim our ancestral wisdom

we work to dismantle systems & cycles of harm

we begin to nurture and share our innate gifts & talents

we approach creation with deep love, reverence & intention

we honor ourselves as reflections of the Divine

we connect more closely to our intuition & to Spirit

we step into our power & weave our dreams into reality

we work in service of community & for the greater good of the collective

 our lives become a conscious sacred creation

Meet Kimberly Rodriguez

our Edición en Español cover artist

"My name is Kimberly Rodriguez. I am first generation and a colonized Indigena occupying the lands of the Ohlone Tribe in California. I am an illustrator and a poet. My work is centralized in crafting words and art for those seeking to awaken to their true magick. My art is a representation of my experiences and my journey as a colonized woman who is focused on decolonizing and representing brown and black bodies in her art. My work is a spiritual approach to art and poetry as that is the medium I am being driven to by my ancestors. I want my art and poetry to serve as the portal of connection to our higher selves, ancestors and spirits for those who may feel unseen. I truly believe that the connection solely lies inside of each and one of us, it is all a matter of awakening and stepping into a space of reclaiming."
