Healing, Self-care and Ceremony
October 30, 2020 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm EDT
Pat McCabe (Weyakpa Najin Win, Woman Stands Shining) and Enroue ‘Awo Onigbonna’ Halfkenny, in conversation with Delma Jackson. We rejoined Pat McCabe and welcomed Enroue Halfkenny to our ongoing fall series. In the spirit of Black/Indigenous solidarity, CWC invited participants to practice the power of self care, healing, ceremony, and wholeness with our renowned guest practitioners. Pat and Enroue guided us through a practice for health, calm, and peace in the midst of tumultuous times.
Recording available to the CWC community by request.

She is a voice for global peace, and her paintings are created as tools for individual, earth and global healing. She draws upon the Indigenous sciences of Thriving Life to reframe questions about sustainability and balance, and she is devoted to supporting the next generations, Women’s Nation and Men’s Nation, in being functional members of the “Hoop of Life” and upholding the honor of being human.
Enroue ‘Awo Onigbonna’ Halfkenny is a Boston born, black, cisgendered male of African, Irish, Swedish, Mi’kmaq and Cherokee descent. He is an Awo (priest of Ifa) within the traditional Yoruba religion from West Africa and is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, an artist, a father/son/husband/brother, and a Healing Justice Activist. Through his consulting, healing and private therapy practice, Healing and Liberation Counseling, he addresses emotional, mental, systemic, and spiritual well being issues for individuals, families, groups, communities and organizations.
Together, these two brilliant and powerful healers guided our community through a series of practices designed to restore our sense of well-being and right relationship to ourselves and one another. In the midst of the 2020 election cycle, we welcomed participants into a space to reground, repurpose, and reimagine our futures together regardless of the election outcome.
