Healing Our Children through Education: A liberation education to guide and support the Afrikan spirit within each child.

Healing Our Children through Education: A liberation education to guide and support the Afrikan spirit within each child

General Description

Our traditions have taught that our life purpose is agreed upon and assigned to us before we come to this physical plane. Who we are and our purpose here is to serve the wellbeing of the entire community. This must be the foundation upon which the education of the Afrikan child is built. We must provide a nurturing, safe, and liberated space that supports children becoming who they were born to be. These children will be equipped with tools to nurture their spiritual, emotional, mental, social, and physical states for optimal impact on our humanity. In this workshop, Dr. Kwaw and Iya Bashea Imana, and Baba T’Shango Mbilishaka share the necessary mind-set, cultural centering, and resources to provide your child with a liberating educational experience that nurtures and develops the Afrikan Spirit within. Come, learn, experience.
