After leaving the God is a Brown Girl Too® Retreat, a number of participants stopped by a gas station on their way through Manhattan. Between the excitement of saying good-byes, giving directions and jumping back into cars, someone lost their wallet. She didn't realize it until she got back into her car and was approaching Brooklyn.
Unfortunately, by the time her attention turned to the wallet, she had been maneuvering through traffic on I-95 and the last...Read Full Post »

Tyler Perry's superb resurrection of Ntozake Shange's For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf reminds us that its message is not just for colored girls. It is a lesson for all of us -- that God is not merely in us, but God is the divine energy that keeps co-creating as us, that part of us that continues to be transformed by the Spirit revealing pure possibility as us. No matter what our challenges are, we are not here in this experience that we call "life" to ju...Read Full Post »

In his new book BRAINWASHED: Challenging the Myth of Black Inferiority, marketing and advertising pioneer Tom Burrell has a whole chapter devoted to "crabbin' and backstabbin'." For many black women, the low expectations, intense jealousy and attempts to sabotage their own are even greater -- when it comes to their sisters. These emotions run even deeper between women because there are two layers of contempt -- not only black women hating on each other for accomplishments in the larger societ...Read Full Post »

Paulette Pipe was spirit-led to retreat into the silence for forty days and forty nights. There, she found a healing place in the heart of God that looked like a cabin in a forest, with a small bed, a kitchenette, a bathroom, and a writing desk. The cabin had a screened-in porch that was surrounded by tall trees, which she felt held her "in the womb of silence." This Shantivanam or "Forest of Peace" gave her the space to release, restore and reunite with Spirit. She dreamed prophetic dreams, ...Read Full Post »

The God is Brown Girl Too® Retreat this past weekend was not a "retreat" at all. Rather than a retreat, it was as our spirit sister Oza described -- a "movement forward."
The "Awaken to Love" movement was one of those unforgettable moments in time when all of the forces of the universe are in perfect alignment with an idea whose time has come. Thus, it was in divine order that "Awaken to Love" opened our minds to reach beyond the appearance of physical limitation to t...Read Full Post »

1. We are created in the image and likeness of God.
2. We live and move and have our being in God.
3. We are temples of the living God.
4. It is written in our laws that we are Gods.
5. We are the first and the last, the beginning and the end, the alpha and the omega.
6. If we, whose mother is older as Lucy's bones, have become disembodied from spiritual Oneness, then so has all of her creation.
7. The Kingdom of God is neither here nor there,...Read Full Post »
