Moments of Mindfulness: And Nothing Less; Truth is of No Color

Moments of Mindfulness: And Nothing Less; Truth is of No Color

 “The 19th Amendment had first been introduced in Congress in 1871. But Congress’ unwillingness to pass it meant women could only vote in states that had passed woman’s suffrage laws. By 1919 that had come to include 27 states, but not New Hampshire. Granite state women would have to wait for the state of Tennessee to become the 36th state to pass the 19th Amendment before they could vote for President in 1920.”[1]And there is so much more to do! Join me in a fascinating, energizing, educational, and empowering discussion about how African American women participated in the battle to…

Moments of Mindfulness: Pandemic Myth Busting with Dr. Valda Crowder

Moments of Mindfulness: Pandemic Myth Busting with Dr. Valda Crowder

“You can call it a germ, you can call it the flu, you can call it a virus. You know, you can call it many different names. I’m not sure anybody even knows what it is.” – President Trump- Why do some people get really sick, but others do not? Are the models too optimistic or too pessimistic? Exactly how transmissible and deadly is the virus? How many people have actually been infected? How long must social restrictions go on for? Why are so many questions still unanswered?[1] The confusion partly arises from the pandemic’s scale and pace. Worldwide, at least 3.1 million people have been infected in less…

Moments of Mindfulness: An audio meditation experience with Sherrell Moore-Tucker

Moments of Mindfulness: An audio meditation experience with Sherrell Moore-Tucker

During the pandemic, have you been feeling intimate with physical, mental, emotional uncertainty and unrest? It seems that everything that can be shaken is shaking, where noise, angry noise appears to be drowning out laughter and love. I found I have been grieving the loss of power over my thoughts, my movements, my expectations, my finances, my future, my everything. So, I created Moments of Mindfulness as an emotional and spiritual band-aide for the hurt we are collectively feeling. All of us at the table have permission to find the stillness that allows authenticity and vulnerability to rise above the noise. We are going…

Moments of Mindfulness: “Love in Action” with the late Congressman John Lewis and NPR’s Krista Tippett

Moments of Mindfulness: "Love in Action" with the late Congressman John Lewis and NPR's Krista Tippett

First  Corinthians 13: 4-8 says “Love is patient and kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing but rejoices in the truth. … Love never ends”. Wikipedia says, “Love is considered to be a positive and negative: with its virtue representing human kindness, compassion, and affection, as “the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another”; and its vice representing human moral flaw, akin to vanity, selfishness, and egotism, Author Glennon Doyle Melton expresses love as a message from God, and I quote:  “When you were born, I put a piece of me in…

Moments of Mindfulness: Daddy, where are you?

Moments of Mindfulness: Daddy, where are you?

Did you look under PROTECTION,  adjacent to PROVIDER, close to KEEPER OF THE REMOTE CONTROL, disguised as  SANTA CLAUS, within YOUR HEART? However, sometimes Daddy can only be found in a WARM, LOVING, and SPECIAL MEMORY. He moves around a lot. He has a lot to do when he is about his work. He hurts when you hurt, finds joy in your laughter, and wishes you all the blessings you deserve. He will answer to Daddy, Poppo, Pops, Dad, Papa, and even “Bald Mommy”. Whoever plays the role and earns the title of a father in your life is a…

Moments of Mindfulness: What About the Children?

Moments of Mindfulness: What About the Children?

You love, you marry, you have children. Mothers are children’s first teachers from the womb. Yet, at some point, parents realize that the multiple intelligences of their children need enhanced nurturing. Their minds and spirits need challenge and encouragement and outlets to creativity.  The subtle byproducts of healthy educational systems are critical life skills to include confidence, embracing diversity, good communication, high ethical standards, honesty, teamwork, the ability to listen, authenticity, selflessness, understanding, and empowerment. Children are unlimited possibilities waiting to be born. And yet, we pay those we trust with their advancement approximately 20% less than similar professions.[1] Enter,…

Moments of Mindfulness: Everybody has one, many of us are.

Moments of Mindfulness: Everybody has one, many of us are.

Although motherhood related celebrations have existed for thousands of years, it was President Woodrow Wilson in 1914 who officially designated the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day in the United States. Mother is our first intimate relationship, first friend, and teacher. She is created with special powers. She has eyes in the back of her head, can hear through walls, and can catch us before we fall. Her love is the launchpad for all kinds of promise. “Super-her-o” mother understands what her children do not say, makes a scraped knee better with a kiss, and gives hugs that last…

Moments of Mindfulness: Be Encouraged!

Moments of Mindfulness:  Be Encouraged!

I went to sleep one night and woke up to a different world. It’s been easy to maintain the ordered physical distance during my daily walks because my only companion is my reflection in the darkened windows of offices and shops. However, it’s been tough to watch the usually frisky neighborhood dogs walking their humans with gloomy, subdued steps. It’s like this mean old “invisible virus enemy” has stolen their spirits as it tries to take away our lives. But wait! This is a time where our memories can become useful weapons. Remember the fight of your life, the second…

Hope Reflected, Restored, and Repositoned with Meesh Peters and Tijani Musa.

Rob Bell in his 2016 book How to Be Here reflects, “That question the blinking line in your mind or on your mobile device asks is: Who are you to do this? can keep you locked up for years, living in fear and doubt, looking over your fence or your shoulder, comparing yourself with the people around you. But the first word about you is a gift, and you’re here and you’re breathing, and you get to take part in the ongoing and creation of the world. Creation is exhausting and exhilarating and draining and invigorating and it’s also a mystery…

She Believes in Me: Encourage, Empower, Inspire with Founder Rene Gorman and Michelle Galliano

Contrary to the belief that this is a male-dominated world, women provide the foundation of power, grace, wisdom, justice, creativity, and hope. Throughout history, the world has witnessed many great women of strength who managed to tap into their Everyday Power to leave an indelible mark on society. However, it is important that there is a transfer of empowerment to the next generations. Actress Audrey Hepburn said, “I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles.” The…
