Our breath serves as our lifeline to consciousness and unconsciousness. In many circles, practices such as meditation, yoga, breathwork, and sound healing were seen as a “White” thing. The challenges of 2020 helped increasing numbers of Black people realize that what had been appropriated as a “White” thing was our thing. During the pandemics of Covid-19 and anti-Black violence, I created healing spaces and breathwork sessions designed for BIPOC communities. This paper is a reflection on my experiences, with advice for holistic practitioners seeking to offer connection and resonance with Black and Brown audiences, particularly through sharing music during healing sessions.
