Circle of the Political Healers program hosted by The Womxn of Michigan United

Circle of the Political Healers program hosted by The Womxn of Michigan United

“If cultural trauma was being erased from public memory, then it was the role of Political Healers to revive those ghosts and have them haunt the public in strategic political ways.” —Arique Aguilar, founding mother of the Political Healers program

The Circle

The Womxn of Michigan United would like to invite you to join us, as we put together our first Circle of the Political Healers program in Detroit.

We assert that a person doesn’t become a political healer; a person uncovers the political healer within themselves. They do this by acknowledging and valuing the emotional labor they invest in their work as a valid and necessary leadership style within our movement. The Political Healers program is centered on womxn of color, but a political healer is NOT only a womxn of color. We believe that anyone can uncover the political healer within themselves.

The Circle is for all healers who want to share their skills and healing with other womxn in the movement for economic and racial justice. It is a healing space, a community-building space, and a space that sustains our souls and the movement. Please join us!

Please contact Elder Leslie Matthews if you have questions. Elder@miunited.org.

To RSVP please see: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdoIOjlhCvIY0rvtqZf5lpr1UuK5sGF-MGj8wWhB7YvLlnp9w/viewform

Book Suey: STORYTELLING SERIES

Book Suey: STORYTELLING SERIES

There is a unique dynamic between the written and spoken
word. In reading aloud what is written down, in its horizontal and linear construction, in expressing verbally what the most basic form of communication is, the speaker becomes more than just a reader, but a Storyteller. Something magical happens when there is a release of words from the page utilizing our voice. In the age of media, of solitary observation of screens and the silent withdrawal of the individual to read, we forsake our common unifying bond, the communal splendor of a campfire. The hearth of human civilization revolves around the fundamental communal gathering and always is the Storyteller in the center.

With each Storytelling Series event, Book Suey will present a local writer/author to speak, to tell us a story, invite us to experience a piece of their world, their vision -- illuminating something we were unable to see before. 


We will have more information here on our upcoming storytellers soon. So check back in

CIVIC ARTS: SELF v. WHOLE? (NOTE NEW DATE!)

In community building, arts work, and life, there are lots of contradictions. Sometimes these seem especially prominent when you realize you are both an individual and a part of a greater whole. How do we take care of ourselves, but also our neighbors, our communities, the cities where we live... the world.  We’ll have a facilitated exercise exploring how we can “move from the overlaps.” Inspired by @vent_diagrams!!

Book Suey: WRITER'S WORKSHOP

During Book Suey regular hours, learn more about the upcoming writer’s workshop hosted by Member-Owner Reynaldo Hinojosa Jr.— He’s looking to create an environment that explores the fundamental spirit of good writing.

————-

Have a passion for writing? Want to explore your unique style and grow as an author, poet, screenwriter or songwriter? Then let's talk. Writer/Book Suey Member-Owner Reynaldo Hinojosa Jr. is looking to create an environment that explores the fundamental spirit of good writing. Having recently received his Master's in Creative Writing from the University of Texas at El Paso, Reynaldo wants to share his experience, knowledge and love of writing with those seeking to expand their abilities as wordsmiths. This is a preliminary gathering to meet with Reynaldo and discuss what you as a writer are looking for and what goals you have for writing. From there, he will discuss ideas for the workshop and schedule a several week block in which you will commit to, participate and have your work critiqued by peers. This is an opportunity to dive into that hobby a bit more, or hop over that wall that's put a halt to your work, or possibly see if you want to pursue the craft as a serious profession. This will be an informal meeting to determine if this is something you want to commit to.
