$54.00 Juneteenth Kundalini Yoga Jam 2023
Juneteenth National Independence Day and also known as Jubilee Day, Emancipation Day, Freedom Day, and Black Independence Day, is now a federal holiday celebrated in the United States commemorating the emancipation of kidnapped Africans. African-American's have been acknowledging our ancestors and our culture. Originating in Galveston, Texas, it has been celebrated annually on June 19 in various parts of the United States since 1865. The day was recognized as a federal holiday on June 17, 2021, when President Joe Biden signed the Juneteenth National Independence Day Act into law. Juneteenth's commemoration is on the anniversary date of the June 19, 1865, announcement of General Order No.3 Union Army, Gordon Granger, proclaiming freedom for enslaved people in Texas, which was the last state of the Confederacy with institutional slavery.
As we acknowledge this historic day of "freedom and liberation," let us also re-examine our own liberation of body, mind, and spirit as African-Americans, Indigenous peoples, women, men, non-binary, parents, business owners, marginalized humans; wanting to live full expansive lives that explore indigenous/cultural spirituality, high education, adventure, pleasure, security, and vast options as sovereign beings. There are more ways to be locked up beyond chains of slavery or even prison walls.
Let's come together with the intention of honoring our ancestors, carrying on the tradition of calling their names, pouring libation, prayer, chanting, meditation, and dancing with kundalini yoga. The intention of healing any trauma is a practice, for it isn't performed for a day or a season. It is a daily practice.
Who's invited the AA community and all of our accomplices or "allies". Definition of an accomplice: Anyone who offers themselves to actively put some skin in the "game" of justice, equity, and equality for ALL!
