Black Bodies Prayer: A 10-Minute Grief Pause

Dear Black Kin,

Please join me in grieving the loss of Tyre Nichols and releasing the riveting and traumatizing impact of his death and the deaths of far too many. We join their families and love ones in a sea of grief and in rivers of prayers for healing. I invite you to get a cup of tea, find a place to be for the next 10 minutes, and light a candle. Take all the time you need to quiet your heart and mind as best you can. Once you feel a shift toward settling, listen and receive this recording, then add your prayers to mine. Once we are done here, sit a little longer in silence to feel the goodness of your intent. Then, dust yourself off, smile a little on the inside, then share your wise light, however dim or bright, near and far, knowing you are not alone. In deep gratitude and fierce love, Ruth

  1. We suffer this in Australia as Indigenous people were we just had also a shooting by police of a young Aboriginal man . So thank you .

  2. Good Evening Dear Ruth, This is sister Hitaji Aziz and this is my first time hearing this. We are still in the same lane and still sitting sacred with stillness. After George Floyed , I had become compleleltley numb by the time this young brother was assasinated by some of those who looked like him (internalized racisim/ trauma ) I am oberving the reality of my oldest son going back to prison this time for murder. I will probably not be on the planet if he makes it back out of a system that locks up mentally ill humans. Without my meditation prictice I would probably be there with him as a mother, as a grandmother to his children and as a African American body:I am still doing the work of mindful justice and whole body healing , generational healing: know that you are in my prayers. P.S. The first book will be finished soon and I have a wonderful writing mentor and editor.

    Peace aned Grace
