How to Find Purpose

Spring Love Notes


Spring is always a self reflection of who I have become mostly because my birthday is in March. Urban gardening is not just a hobby it's a lifestyle that gives me hope, faith and abundance in a world of uncertainty. A seed is potential. Compost is rebirth. The sun and moon connects us all to growth and prosperity. I am a holistic health advocate who aims to help people reconnect with who they are instead of getting lost in illusion. I have gained tremendous insight from traveling. Food sharing and community has broadened my views on migration and the cultures and traditions that have maintained medicinal herbs and their use.
I will be venturing into this topic in the film DiSpell .

Holistic Health: 
Gardening as mindfulness; tune into nature: 
The more you grow, the more you will invite butterflies, ladybugs, praying mantis, lizards, hummingbirds and bees. Gardening is inviting a beautiful atmosphere into your environment and having the pleasure to see how we all coexist organically . This is how we come to understand the ecosystem and our interconnectedness. 
 Gardening is also a form of exercise. We move out of the mind and into the body.  Grounding your feet in the dirt has healing properties. Placing hands in the dirt is an anti depressant. 
When in direct contact with the Earth, your body becomes suffused with negative charged free electrons and equalizes to the same electric energy level as the earth.
Gardening is empowerment:
Radical self love is taking back your health by growing your own food. 
Urban Soul Farmer Workshops going on now.

Sobek Films Fundraiser February 6th


Hello friends,

I am pleased to announce our first pop up film fundraiser is finally here! We will have a fun evening of show and tell, music and live entertainment.

DiSpell is the outcome of my travels to Costa Rica, Louisiana and researching my ancestry. I partnered up with filmmaker Skryb Anu of Earth Realm Comics and we will navigate across country to experience and archive ancient  traditions and cultures that connect people of color on a global scale. Our intention is to empower and rebirth a new way of thinking about the African diaspora. Our intention is to reconnect with who we really are for further innovation.
