Last night King Simon Productions held its 18th anniversary Health Seminar and was a beautifully informative event. A gathering of brilliant minds providing the community with constructive insight to their approach to health as it relates to the whole being. No longer can we look at our health conditions as a physical event separate from the mind-spirit, but rather as a causal effect of some imbalance in lifestyle and karma included. Dr. Judge, one of the featured speakers of the evening gave a beautiful dissertation titled "Womens Health Justice Return to Nature. A Petalwise Perspective." Speaking on the disconnect between the average Western woman and her instinctual experience. An analogy of how woman's experience is like that of the Earth "...it has brought so much damage to us individually and to our collective culture, which suffers from women’s rejection and suppression of our instinctual power. And it has brought terrible destruction to the earth, which needs women’s wisdom for sustenance.”
Upon closing Dr. Judge shed light on exactly what Black Women’s Justice consists of. A national understanding that women of color's health needs are different from that of other women. Efforts to have complete and total autonomy to choose our own methods of care and go to our own practitioners. Access to female sourced information. Be made aware of the dangerous side effects of allopathic drugs and surgeries, and refuse them without question. To release imprisoned mothers of young children, pregnant, and nursing women. Immediate end to involuntary medical experiments and testing on women of color. Freedom to choose our own natural traditional birthing methods without the intervention of White Male dominated intervention,and others.
This was truly an inspiring event as all ages from our elders to our youth occupied the same space in efforts to uplift and educate ourselves. Petalwise is forever thankful to have been a part of this event.
