Launched on Nov. 17th 2013 on the 21st anniversary of Audre Lorde’s transition from an embodied warrior healer to an ancestral force, this is a weekly series of videos documenting and sharing my process of clarifying survival through a re-immersion in the words of Audre Lorde. To see all the videos so far check out: summerofourlorde.wordpress.com/resurrection-sundays/
This week's poem "Love Poem" is dedicated to the awesome participants and cosponsor's of mobilehomecoming.org/ 's The Fullness: A Day Long Institute on Erotic Power inspired by Audre Lorde's "Uses of the Erotic/Power of the Erotic." This poem was part of Audre Lorde's process of being unapologetic about her desire and we offered it in oracle form to the institute participants who challenged themselves and each other to unapologetically express their desire in their personal, political and spiritual lives! This is your assignment too. What are you ready to claim unapologetically?
To check out the ongoing work of the 25 organizations that helped to cosponsor the institute visit this page: mobilehomecoming.tumblr.com/post/75045307614/the-fullness-ongoing-resources-for-ecstatic-wellness
Every week as part of my practice of resurrecting Audre Lorde in my life and in our communities I will be making an alphabetical oracle from the weekly survival poem which will consist of up to 26 new poems based on the sacred source text. If you would like to receive a custom poem as a blessing for your journey you can with a donation of your choice to Eternal Summer of the Black Feminist Mind’s School of Our Lorde! summerofourlorde.wordpress.com
