INSPIRING PEACE, ONE BREATH AT A TIME
Studies show that students who meditate before an exam perform better than students who do not. What is mindfulness? The best way to explain it is by saying it's basically a way to demonstrate our ability to manage stress and respond, not react, to setbacks.
Mindfulness teaches you to be aware of your thoughts and acknowledge anxiety, without getting caught up in the negative thoughts it brings. What negative words do you say to yourself? Would you like to become a mantra making, positive affirmation creating, meditation guru that is able to take control of your life and let the stuff you can't control go? Then allow yourself to breathe. Let go of anything that's weighing on your mind. Exhale, let it go.
Our ultimate goal is to foster a more compassionate, resilient lifestyle and well-being using mindfulness, meditation, and specialized programs to create a more peaceful way of living.
My peace initiatives target those in the caregiving business, especially educators. As an educator, I know how much we give of ourselves. We are not compensated much, but we work at home and at work, so it leaves little time to care for ourselves. Especially considering those with children and families of their own.
I am a Wellness Consultant that specializes in mindfulness and meditation. I have too been burned out of the industry, and decided to come back to the industry in a much needed capacity, to be for others exactly what I needed. My passion for mindfulness and the education industry birthed 2 Inspire Peace in which I inspire self care and promote healthy holistic lifestyles to handle stress more effectively.
My ultimate goal is to foster a more compassionate and mindful lifestyle and well-being using mindfulness, meditation, and specialized programs to create a more peaceful way of life.

GRATITUDE FOR ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL RETREAT!!!
Upon arrival, the anticipation was so high. We related with one another through playing games in the game room, meditating, poetry, affirmations, meditative coloring and painting, creating essential oil blends to manifest our intentions, twerk sessions, visualizing, release sessions, times spent journaling, chilling outside, grounding/earthing, enjoying time alone and sacred times by ourselves, resting or taking a nap, chilling in the hot tub, or on the cove overlooking the waters, searching for crystals, enjoying extended baths or showers in the luxurious bathrooms, or hanging in the kitchen enjoying the best food from the best chefs. My physical body is here, but my mind and my heart is still in Broken Bow, Oklahoma. So let me extend the gratitude necessary and warranted to truly move forward.
It was the release piece that made all of the difference....gathering in a circle around a bonfire, roasting marshmallows, playing drums and music while releasing old beliefs that no longer serve us. Screaming into the distance, shedding tears, speaking love and light over one another, and being in one accord as we individually released and burned what we knew was necessary.
It was like a slumber party, but everyone present served a significant purpose and served to the capacity of their gifts. Everyone came with an open heart to receive and to release, and we all had a beautiful time with one another. I was blessed to host, but this retreat was for me too. There are many areas in my life that I definitely have the capacity for growth in, and this retreat allowed me to lovingly see myself, flaws and all. I am healing, but I am thriving, and I am soooo grateful to all who attended The Relax, Relate, & Release Retreat. YOU made the retreat what it was, and I pray that this week has been absolutely phenomenal as you continued to receive the messages meant only for you. So many spiritually gifted people under one roof at one time, I am still in awe!
Gratitude to Purplelis Jewelry, Candice Chanelle, Ikeshia Cotton and Marva A. R. Nichols for your being sponsors of The Relax, Relate, & Release Retreat this year. Your contributions and gifts were added spiritual bonuses within the Blissful Backpacks, and we deeply appreciate you! A huge shout out goes to Shavon Ohiomu who went out of her busy schedule to ensure that I had more than what I needed to host the retreat. She equipped us with plenty of water, paper goods, food, snacks, and so much more of all the things that often go overlooked, but make a big difference. I am so appreciative to have a sister that would volunteer out of nowhere to ensure that everything was taken care of. I love you Sis!
Thank you to everyone who made this retreat so phenomenal!!! We shared a weekend in which every one of us created an awakening within ourselves. May we continue to love on one another, encourage each other, and remain on the path of our soul's journey.
In celebration of Mental Health Awareness as a whole, because it affects us every day, every week, and every month of the year, we are coming together to focus on creating balance and harmony. As an extension of the experience of The PH (Poetry+Healing)=Balance Open-Mic night 3-part series, we are now presenting The PH Balance Love Evolution The Open Heart Open Mind Open Mic.
Our intentions are to provide a forum for the creatives within the city to release. Take some time to dust off and open your journal entries, poetry, prose, songs, or whatever way you have chosen to express and release. Take this experience to let go of grief, hurt, self sabotage, forgiveness of self and others, abandonment, neglect, rejection, stress, anxiety, and trauma so that you can leave all of that behind while embracing love and true accountability of self. King Shakur AKA KD Brown will be spinning as the DJ of the experience, while Jonathan White AKA GNO MCs for the evening.
The PH (Poetry+Healing) Balance Open-Mic was created by Jonathan GNO White, King Shakur, and 2 Inspire Peace aka The Art-Inspired Healing Collective as a forum to allow those that have not had a voice, or whose voice has become silenced, an opportunity to speak up. So much silence and shame has been stifling our generations for years, and this stigma has continued to affect our mental, emotional, and physical health. How do we begin to move forward in love as we embrace ourselves as well as one another?
The PH Balance experience offers not only an high vibrational ambiance and forum to release. In addition, there are vendors and resources present at the event to offer an opportunity to provide solutions and resources for what the next step of healing is for whomever is looking for it.
We are asking the community to come out and share the stage as a collective as we let go of what needs to be released in order to move forward towards what lies ahead in a space of self love as we continue to evolve into our greatest selves. This event celebrates the art of expression and true authenticity as we release what no longer serves us.
Tickets will be available for presale for $20: covers the price of admission and access to the vegan and regular chicken and waffle bar
Tickets sold at the door will be $25: covers the price of admission and access to the vegan and regular chicken and waffle bar.
