Feeling Here

I will lead select individuals from the black community of UM through a Total Truth Process ritual, a series of reflective prompts delivered in a ceremonial way. The black community of America have not been allotted safe spaces for emotional expression, despite their efforts, for the sake of abstaining from being silenced temporarily in the metaphorical sense or permanently in the realistic sense. By creating a safe space and evaluating the emotions of want, remorse/regret/accountability, and fear, I will use ambiance as a playground for relatability between my audience and I.
