Yemoya Artist Residency

The last two weeks have been groundbreaking and life changing. Along with three other phenomenal women, I just completed an intensive international artist residency under the helm of international dubpoet, mono-dramatist and educator, D’bi Young Anitafrika. The residency took place in Nassau, Bahamas and combined physical wellness, meditation, spiritual grounding and self-knowledge as a foundation for creating art. This meant waking up at 5am to meditate, then do yoga, then jogging, then swimming in the ocean and then we would begin our classes for the day! I cannot begin to describe in words how important this residency was for me and how much I learned about myself and my art. What I will say is that I feel more alive than I ever have before… awake, grounded, grateful and deeply committed to the practice of self-love and, as my fellow resident artist Maryam would say, “DOING THE MOST!”
