The Journey to Rena's Moan
DOCUMENTARY SCREENING AND DISCUSSION
Sankofa is a West African principle that says it is not taboo revisit your past, fetch something that was lost or forgotten and bring it forward into the present to guide your future. Join artist InnaRae, for a short screening of her documentary, The Journey to Rena’s Moan. Watch, listen, and hear as she gives an intimate and inspiring account of her journey inward, back through the womb and directly to the heart of her late grandmother, Irene.
This work starts the conversation and compels women who struggle with sexual shame and generational wounds to start the healing journey toward inner peace and allow their authentic gifts shine.
This outreach program is created from the inspiration of my late grandmother, Irene Johnson, who, by the age of 14 forsook her dream to write and perform to work for her family. It is designed to recognize, promote, and establish a link between inner healing, wellbeing and creative expression among girls ages 10-18. Aiming to fill what gaps may exist from lack of support and nurturing of these gifts, InnaRae also challenges negative thought patterns found in today’s mainstream musical/ written/spoken expression and inspires young ladies to identify and share what creative gifts they’ve inherited from their grandmothers, their beauty and their authentic voices with the world around them!
Naked Confidence Workshops
AS INSPIRED BY TONYA K. FREEMAN'S WORK WITH WOMEN
Sankofa and Christianity
Sankofa is a word derived from the West African Culture, which means “go back and take”. It implores us to see that it is never too late to go back to the past to reclaim something lost or forgotten. This 1-month/4-day remote workshop takes a close look at InnaRae’s book on the topic. It is designed to encourage participants to take courage, write, and reflect upon their spiritual lineage with regard for how it affects their lives today.
Looking for the Father Within
This workshop is for women who have grown up without their natural fathers. This 1 month/4-day remote workshop allows for a small intimate journal through some of the residual, unprocessed emotions carried around this issue. Taking the time to process, write, reflect and share their feelings is sure to bring balance within.
