The Black Lives Matter Meditation for
Healing Racial Trauma
A 17 minute guided meditation for Black people using mindfulness, affirmation, and metta (loving-kindness)
Racial trauma exacts a psychological and physiological toll on people of color. Guided meditation is one way to assist in calming a heightened state of distress, affirming one’s value and humanity, and recentering with love. This meditation is for Black people who have experienced racism.
The Ally + Accomplice Meditation for
Cultivating an Anti-Racist Mindset
A 17 minute guided meditation for White people who identify as allies and/or accomplices to Black people using mindfulness, affirmation, and metta (loving-kindness)
Partnering allows us reach the goal of healing and liberation in a more loving and unified manner, but to be an ally requires an anti-racist mindset. In our current world, that requires a daily practice of meditation on Whiteness and the value and humanity of Black people. The Ally + Accomplice Meditation maintains a similar format, but the affirmation messages speak to the unique thoughts, feelings, and attitudes White people may experience in their journey toward anti-racism. My intention is to offer an opportunity to mindfully reflect with guidance from a Black person in a way that attends to the cognitive, affective and physiological parts of the person listening. Listening to this meditation does not make you automatically anti-racist. That is a life long journey. It simply points you in the direction through guided practice.
The BLM meditation is freely available; however, if you would like a download of the Ally + Accomplice meditation, please donate below. You may listen to it for free without donating on the website.
