A Source of Creative Expression, Deep Connection & Transformation

This Mandala symbolism was first created by Carl Jung a noted psychologist and he began to explore the unconscious.

Creating a Mandala is a way for a person to strengthen the connective bond between themselves and the natural world and bring into the conscious mind that which is hides where it can then be examined.

When we remove ourselves from the busyness to slow down and tune into the natural environment answers emerge.

The Womanist Empowerment Series In Poetry and Prose
PRESENTS…P.E.P. Talks
The Social Status of Women and the problems we face
and the inherent tribulations of following the Status Quo.
The life we live is a direct result of
generations of conditions that have worked together to
make the woman physically weak, mentally narrow and politically powerless.
It happens in the three systems that govern our lives.
Public Education; Criminal Justice and lastly Government.
What is the role Black Women will play?
What are the responsibilities to her community?
And lastly What type of leadership will emerge that will-restore Humanity?
I want you during this series to question the bigger mission for your life. It will help you find happiness and discover peace and tranquility.
During the last twenty-five years in public education, I searched for a way to express myself and contribute to society. What I found as I began to unearth the source of my suffering was a darkness and abyss so bleak that every time I looked in I would quiver and quake. I looked down into the darkness and dove in heart first to find meaning and purpose and quiet my restless heart.
Searching for a PANACEA to solve the deep-seated problems that plagued my happiness, Seven tools were revealed to me in the wee hours of the morning one day.
The Seven tools will awaken the deeper dimension of the self as you discover a more enlightened way of relating to life. We, Black women, are empowered through the feminine aspect of life. Learn to let go and let the life inside you unfold.
Listen with me as the Great Story of Woman is told, We write the history and tell the tale of woman’s rise to her natural state. We are empowered as women and mothers as we guide the world through story writing and conversation. Join me in building a New Human Community,

Feminine Essence

Laying dormant
Below the surface of the earth and the heels of man
Lays an underdeveloped seed.

The pressure of holding the weight
Of the earth has crystallized its’ nectar
And hardened its’ outer shell.

Each century a circular pattern emerge and
With a tremendous surge of power
Breaks through into the bright sunshine.

Life on the surface of the earth
Brings strange but familiar feelings
So she lives in quiet contemplation.

Among…
The trees, the wind, the rain, the snow
She is a part of nature.

An Image of Feminine Leadership Part 4 Understanding the Moral Foundation of Education

Manifest 2017, Virtual Retreat, Womanist Empowerment

Education As a Moral Undertaking

The position of the educator/mother as feminine leader and sovereign obliges you to act in an ethical manner. Not only do women mother and teach, but you also have the moral responsibility to sustain the continuity of human life. As mother/educator, you impose the social norms and values both through formal and informal education.

The Current Focus in Education

The emphasis on testing and learning the ABC’s has pushed to the rear more important courses that young people need to learn. Examination of facts and numbers have shaped the culture in schools. This has led to a decline in the purpose of education and of human life.

Grades and Self-Esteem

Just recently a study was conducted on the correlation between student grades and self-esteem. It was found that a student’s self-esteem is tied to the grades she or he makes. Thus, student’s self-worth becomes measured by a test. A test which oftentimes is biases towards white.

Cultural Images for Children and Society

In the role of cultural keeper, women teach young people how to behave socially in everyday life. In the past the role of mother/educator has been used by the state and women have been willing partners in maintaining the status quo. I want to challenge you to become a believer in young people. Ensuring that their interest and needs come before the demands of the state.

Personal Experience

I had the opportunity to work with a teacher in Florida. I was a Para-professional. I thought I would be a teaching partner, but instead I was a teacher assistant. Roles sometimes become blurred in the classroom.

Granted I am a seasoned teacher and could have provided valuable support to the teacher. I was not utilized as a support but used as someone who carried out the demands of the teacher.

She once told me to run a personal errand for her. I would have, but it was the attitude of this teacher that I could not bear. She once told her students, “if I tell you to walk around the table three times, no matter how ridiculous it may be, just do it.”

Schools Have Become Unsafe

In the elementary school where I taught, fighting was a normal thing. There was violence and bullying, disrespect and fights. School was an extension of the neighborhood children came from. Instead of teachers and the administration shaping the culture in school. It was students who shaped the disruptive climate in the classroom and made it impossible for them to learn.

Blind Obedience

The days of blind obedience to authority is over. The teacher isn’t always right. Just because of your position you do not have inevitable rights. The teacher must utilize moral guidance when she relates not only with students, but other adults in her classroom.

A Means of Control

Unfortunate, most teachers are on a control trip. In my twenty years in education there were few peers that I could relate to. Most teacher used teaching to an end. Which was a way to exercise personal power and to dominate the lives of children. This is the one problem I see with education that does an enormous disservice to both young people and the world.

Changing the Purpose of Educating Young People

Even though the society that we live in set the standards, women have the power to impart the lessons that are valuable for the full development of young people. In education and as your child’s first teacher you can transform learning into a process of empowerment. A style of coaching that inspires a new generation of young people who want to change the world.

A Heart to Heart Exchange

It is the art of teaching that touches the heart of young people. It is more than a mere passing along of useless facts. You can create the environment that becomes the perfect place to practice democracy. Regrettably, it is only taught, but not actually lived.

Holistic Teaching

When you teach with your whole self-young people get the best of you. Oftentimes because of the nature of teaching, most teachers are stressed. There is a tremendous demand of your time. In addition, parents want you to teach their child and give her the best. Lastly, the city and state want you to produce loyal subjects who can pass a test and not question, but only follow the orders that are given to them.

Teacher Professionalism Integrates Moral Purpose.

There are plenty of opportunities for professional development for teachers within education. Most teacher, in addition to earning a degree can have letters and citations added to their name. This does well for professionalism, but there is a need for personal development.

Personal Development is not offered in educational training. Schools and universities have steered away from the morality of teaching. Oftentimes confusing it with religion values. One’s religion is personal, but on the other hand, there are universal values that we all can ascribe to, such as honesty, integrity and compassion. These values are left out of teacher development schools. I want to propose that teachers seek out Personal Development independently of a formal education.

Personal Purpose are Fundamental to the Future of Society.

A moral purpose keeps mother/educator of children close to the needs of children and youth. A moral purpose for education is key to changing the course of the world. Currently our world is on a trajectory headed toward the edge of a cliff. We educator/mother of children must impart to young people a desire to do good and find meaning and purpose in life.

Morality is also Core to Educational Renewal

You are central to the direction the world will take for the next one hundred years. When can find meaning and purpose and disengage from the state you become an Agent of Change.

Creating a Culture that Empowers Young People

Culture is created in schools and in the home. In the way we women allow young people the freedom to be themselves. It is how we interact with children that must be changed if we want to change the world.

Oftentimes we want young people to conform which puts the woman in charge. We want control. This does not go as planned and young people rebel.

Children’s violence and disrespect reflect the decline of the purpose of education and human life. I propose that the learning environment becomes one of sharing. Both the teacher and student, parent and child learn, develop and grow. It becomes a shared partnership. Where each one has something to give and share.

Feminine Leadership Archetypes

A Seven Step Personal Transformation, Transformational Leadership Project

What archetype type would you model yourself after if you could choose? leave me a comment below.

I have come to the conclusion that at fifty I had better have a lens with which to view my life through.

I never really thought about it much, just who did I emulate myself after when I was growing up.

I think it was my dad even though I do not think it was a conscious choice. I was the little girl that looked up to my parents as if they were Gods and could do no wrong,

But now as a mature woman who can make conscious choices I look to a model of Feminine Leadership that speaks to the greater part of me. I will examine her type tonight.

Archetypes are by their very nature universal and indestructible. They connect with the unconscious mind. That when the time is right will reveal its’ secrets to you.

Female leaders in order to fulfill your role properly you would do best to first find an archetype that represents the best qualities. An example would be, “The Good Queen”.

Her title speaks to the position she holds. Her action would be for the good and prosperity of all.

Her followers welfare and happiness would be her main concern. She would rule and guide from the goodness in her heart. The people who followed her would benefit from her goodness and love.

Her path is one filled with challenges that she faithfully fulfilled to arrive on her throne.

The path of the lover she traveled on brought her happiness and suffering. Not fully satisfied she ran into the arms of lovers trying to find happiness until she realized the source of her insatiable desire. A longing deep in her heart for love she thought was denied to her

She transformed her pain into purpose. Now she is ready to fulfill her mission in society as the Good Queen.
