Happy Monday, Alchemists!
This conversation highlights why representation matters, the power of touch, dismantling the stigmas around counseling and acknowledging when we need help!
I'm always amazed and thankful to hear stories of what led people into this work. Not only is it inspiring, but also reminds us that we're not the only ones seeking a return to grace, love and understanding. Our stories also amplify the generosity and compassion of spirit that seeks to support others.
Today's guest shares a gorgeous story, blending art and Reiki as lineages of healing. Kianga Jinaki is a fiber-artist who creates quilts, dolls and mixed-media works that honor Black life and culture. Her works have been been exhibited both nationally and internationally since 1991. Ms Jinaki is a 2022 recipient of the Artist Innovation Fellowship presented by the Cultural Council of Palm Beach county Florida. A teaching artist, Kianga has worked with The Norton Museum, Spady Museum, the African American Resource Library & Cultural Center, Palm Beach & Broward county library systems providing artistic/cultural programs for the communities they serve. One of her greatest joys as an artist is working with community members to tap into their own creative rhythm.
I had the pleasure of meeting Kianga during last year's annual Melanated Reiki Healers Conference. To learn more about her work, be sure to visit http://kiangaart.com and follow her on IG @kiangaart_gallery
