The first episode of the New Year is one I have wanted to share for a while now. I was faced with many challenges at the end of the year, mainly losing my voice and my computer crashing. But by the Most High’s grace and a smart decision to buy a hard drive some months back, I was able to save so much work I’ve created. That said, I am thrilled to share this month’s interview with each of you. B. is a gift, a sage, a human being with so much power and light for the world. Enjoy. And please share widely with your loved ones.
B. Anderson, (they/them), is a sound healer, plant medicine stewart/herbalist, reiki practitioner, mediation teacher, mediator, ritual leader and community organizer. B. calls up the traditions, legacies and medicine of their southern Black American, Jamaican Maroon, Niitsitapi/Blackfoot, and Choctaw ancestry as their healing arts praxis.
A visionary of Love Circle Sangha, a member of Harriet’s Apothecary and member of the board for engaged Buddhist activist organization Buddhist Peace Fellowship, B. combines their experience as a grassroot organizer, and their life principles and practices to co-design community wellness strategies, transformative spaces and generative healing modalities across the country.
B. Recently offered their their talk on “Right Stewardship as an Anecdote to Cultural Genocide” for Tedx Flatbush and shared practice on liberation as an worm through healing sound and collective awareness for the Healing Justice Podcast.
