This past Friday, Sôl Appétit took part in the healing at Urban Escape Healing’s event, Healing Collective: A Night of Sacred Space.
I have never felt so much love in one space before. The space is laced in teals and blues that nurture your soul and upon entrance, that sage hits your nostrils and immediately forces you to lay your burdens down. There were different healing sessions you could sign up for: acupuncture, massage, Tarot Card reading, meditation, psychotherapy to name just a few. It was beautiful, amazing, wonderful. In a time where there is so much pain and hate in the world, I truly felt like I had stepped into another world that was cloaked in love and peace. J
My beautiful sister, Jasmyne , also my business partner for the night, was with me in the trenches in the kitchen serving up Sôl Appétit’s habichuelas guisadas, pollo guisado, arroz amarrillo and a mixed greens and arugula salad with mango, cilantro, avocado, red onions, cherry tomatoes and citrus vinaigrette, just like your abuela makes it.
I met a bunch of amazing souls, fed lots of people, received lots of love and got to appreciate the beauty that happens when people come together with the sole purpose of making the world a better place.
Thank you to Neale Baldyga at Urban Escape Healing for giving me the opportunity to share my gifts with the crowd. Also, many thanks to those that supported me during and before the event: Khadijah Kysia, my dear friend who is also an acupuncturist, my sister Jasmyne, my Nana and my friend Alana Martin. I couldn’t have done this without any you all’s love and support.
