Indigo Days is a resource for black warrior healers remembering ourselves and reclaiming our traditions of magic, love and transformation. Inspired by the black girl healer folklorist gangta, fiddler, revolutionary character Indigo in Ntozake Shange’s 1982 novel Sassafrass, Cypress and Indigo, Indigo Days is a context for every day as sacred space for the sacred task of healing our planetary selves and deepening the meaning of life.
Indigo Days (June 9-15, 2011 in Durham, North Carolina) will be a week of celebration, learning and healing specifically centered on the power of black women and black genderqueer people to be healers, spiritual leaders and transformative warriors in our communities and on the planet.
The week will include:
A Blues Porch Concert
Workshops on black healing traditions
Blues Woman Bible Study (blues as sacred texts in the tradition of black feminist healing)
Sharing family remedies and herbal wisdom
A Blue Lights in the Basement House Party
The gathering is FREE and all participants will be provided with food and housing for the week. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details, and to confirm your participation.
