When Doves Cry: An Artistic Examination of Family Violence

“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”

― Audre Lorde

When Doves Cry: An Artistic Examination of Family Violence is about creating balance and harmony within our homes and in our communities. Many of us have experienced violence within our homes or involving someone we know.

We will have a lunch and learn writing workshop held on October 3rd before the open mic on October 16th. Get your free ticket for one or both. Holistic healing vendors are welcomed, please purchase your ticket if interested to showcase your services and products.

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 Balance experience offers not only an high vibrational ambiance and forum to release, but the vendors and resources to offer the opportunity in one form or another to provide solutions and resources for what the next step of healing is for whomever is looking for it.

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. Let's celebrate the art of expression and true authenticity as we release what no longer serves us.

· Abandonment: “How can you just leave me standing? Alone in a world that's so cold? “

· Fear: Touch if you will my stomach, feel how it trembles inside. You've got the butterflies all tied up, don't make me chase you, even doves have pride

· Confronting the Pain, Breaking the cycle: “Maybe I'm just like my father too bold, maybe you're just like my mother, she’s never satisfied.”

In the song, "When Doves Cry", crying doves seem to refer to what happens when two people who were once in love start to fight. However, mourning doves don't necessarily just represent grief or sadness: they actually represent optimism in the face of such tragedy. Even in times of great tragedy, there is hope for better days on the other side.

Tickets available on Eventbrite and FB
