Travel Medicine | Therapy + Mental Health Retreat

 I realized...

touching down, when the wheels hit the pavement safely + the pilot turns off the Fasten Seat Belt sign, then and only then do I feel a sigh of relief. "I made it back to Land!", I think to myself. 

The rest.... well--*SIGH* That feeling of being a foreigner in my humble abode. I couldn't shake it.

Besides my seeing Mother loving face, I can't shake the anxiety of knowing that society carries a prize on my head, waiting to be swiped by Uncle Sam at any given moment, side-eyed or question for my motives in life...the rush and sense of urgency of knowing that time is ticking and my Free Creative + Butterfly Life will soon be out of season all because of my Age. 

Can you believe that? Says, who.

Remember Millennials do it differently.

As fate would have it, I lost my vehicle to a car accident back in the Fall of 2021. It also happened to be the 3rd time, I was moving in a Year, during the Pandemic. I decided to take things for what they were -- and seize the opportunity to forgo my stress of acquiring things and just go do what I love. 

Travel. Research. Renew. Rebuild. And so, I did. 

After a Wellness Experience in the Spice Island of Grenada in January, I planned/coordinated a wedding in Malindi, Kenya in February. By March, I bolted to Port of Spain, Trinidad to spend time with Loved Ones + Friends.

Just the thought of being in a different physical space puts me in a different head + heart space. One, where I am unrecognized and even admired or gaped at because of my foreign status. It's refreshing.

It's Liberating. And during this time of a Mental Health Asylum, I intend to fully enjoy the Adventurous + at times Ignorantly Blissful Expat Life.

  1. Swedish massage of best bar in makati is primarily trained in private schools in Sweden and for some schools there is external quality assurance through national exams. Still there are differences in how the massage is performed. There is no detailed standardization in Sweden on how massage should be.

Yes, Work, Get Your LIFE. Street/Dance Workshop Jacob's Pillow 2020 NYC

My Life at the Pillow..." ~by JR Glover Today was a Pillow Day. As an Alumni, I traveled North to help facilitate and support the Recruitment Tour amidst other beautiful dancing bodies. It's amazing to see how we have all grown through the years as Dancers, Creatives, Choreographers, Directors and lifelong students. Even more, it's inspiring to know that we are all keeping at it--pursuing Excellence and honing our craft day by day. What was meant to be a standby experience turned out to be a Full Dance Day for me. I give thanks to my peers who encouraged me to dance. It was a risk--knowing that I had not danced or taken a technique class proper in several months. However, due to the nature of GYROKINESIS as an instructor, I never lost body awareness, posture, alignment etc. So it was just a matter of tipping over the edge again to see where my body goes....and catching it again. It was a necessary challenge in fact, with the chronic pain of Trigeminal Neuralgia and C

Keeping Dance Alive, St. Croix Arts Community Outreach

 In 2017, I was at home in Washington DC bedridden and removed from everything that I knew.  My life as a Dancer as I knew it....was no longer. I could barely walk, performing menial tasks around the house was a burden for me. I often felt faint and dizzy. My nervous system had taken a hard hit from the brutal cold winter of Chicago. The winds  shook my bones and my days of job hunting, street performing in the Chicago O'Hare Airport for bills and just aimlessly walking in the snow drove my body into a state of shock. PH. D Chenzira Davis Kahina & Ms. Charlita Charlita Schuster,  great friends discussing a paining in the UVI Cultural Center After my last gig as a Broadway Dancer, there was nothing more for me in the Windy City. I'd returned home with question in my mind and heart as to how I would move forward. I was diagnoses with a rare chronic pain condition, Trigeminal Neuralgia.

What is Black Girl Magic?

The Makers arise early this morning to receive a local news reporter in Alberquerque KQRE Channel 13 doing a feature story on the Keshet Center for the Arts. I had the privilege of leading the dancers in a GYROKINESISⓇ seated class. It turned out to be just what we all needed to prepare our minds and bodies for a day of finalizing material and preparing for this evening's tech run. I took more time on my knees to acknowledge Most High and restore my spiritual and mental welfare.  I'm learning the ins and outs of social media marketing--balancing it out with my pursuits in academia, business planning, outreach, work life all while planning a vacation. WHEW! Talk about being a real Woman with real things going on: All At Once.
