Leidene’s Racial Autobiography as published in Courageous Conversations About Race 2nd Edition

Healing The Racial Divide: Leidene Begins at 1:36
Brennan Energy Medicine practitioner and seasoned Racial Consciousness coach Leidene King offers this space for those experiencing grief. Upon her Mom’s passing, Leidene found few were equipped to meaningfully support her in and through grief. All were well meaning but most wanted her to just feel better, move on, get back to “normal.”
She knew however that healing requires presence – being with what is. This is essential to transformation. So, in this space we offer you what Leidene desired more of during her grief journey – a space in which to show up, be with your grief and be received in it. No pushing, pulling, prodding or advising – just being with self and others, and one’s experience of grief so it can be received and in time transformed. This is not counseling or therapy, but rather an energetic container in which to be received and ultimately heal. This is sacred space open to all faiths and spiritual paths, and will include prayer, setting of intention, healing music, meditation and whole group sharing. Upcoming dates/times will be shared as they come forth. Thank you for your interest.
