Mojùgbá

•October 26, 2015 • Leave a Comment

Mojùgbá- A Yoruba prayer recited to give homage to the Egun or an Orisá.

MOJÙGBÁ, a Yoruba word for GIVE HOMAGE. ECLECTIC, CREATIVES GIVE HOMAGE to the ANCESTRAL SPIRITS through FOOD, ART, MUSIC, & DANCE.

MOJÙGBÁ, began as a monthly gathering where the diverse, the eclectic, the soulful, the artistic, the holistic, the spiritual, the creatives of positive vibrations can come together giving homage through food, art, music, dance on the foundation of ancestral spirituality. MOJÙGBÁ was birth Friday, February 15, 2013, in a small 1,000 square foot vegetarian/vegan restaurant in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. those who attended and participated were treated more as guest in your home as opposed to customers. For the vibe was more of community, tribe, family. An eclectic blend of danceable music, ranging from the familiar to the obscure. Feeling like a welcoming, warn hug, the music tells a story or more so takes you on a journey, of your mind, your body, and you spirit.

There is a GATHERING coming forth. A GATHERING of ECLECTIC, ARTISTIC, CREATIVE BEINGS of varying MEDIUMS emitting POSITIVE VIBRATIONS. Coming TOGETHER in the name of LOVE, PEACE, FREEDOM. Giving HOMAGE to the ANCESTRAL SPIRITS through a CELEBRATION of FOOD, ART, MUSIC, RHYTHMIC MOVEMENT. The GROUND has been CONSECRATED, the SEED has been PLANTED, the FOUNDATION is SET. This GATHERING will BLOOM in the PEAK of SPRING. BROTHERS, SISTERS of all RACES, ETHNICITIES, CULTURES, ORIENTATIONS, SPIRITUALITIES, let us come TOGETHER accepting ONE another as WE are, accepting OURSELVES as WE are in the BLESSINGS of LOVE.

The Most Sacred of Space

•October 25, 2015 • Leave a Comment

The mat is one of the most sacred of spaces. It is a space of balance and stability, peace and tranquillity, calm and stillness. Before stepping onto the mat, one should and must be cleansed of negative energy, be it fear, doubt, anger. Acknowledge first that these feelings are there, because the first step towards balance, stability, calm, stillness, is acknowledgement. Once one has done this, LET IT ALL GO. Then leaving only a clear, open, free mind, when one steps onto the mat.

New Music from Renee Neufville of Zhane

•October 24, 2015 • Leave a Comment

Been a minute, well maybe not that long, but we have new music from the beautiful, the gifted, the talented Renee Neufville. Many of you remember her as one half of the duo Zhane, who gave us such 90’s classics as “Hey Mr. DJ,” “Sending My Love,” and one of my favorites, “Crush.” Renee has been keeping busy with Roy Hargrove’s RH Factor as well as various other projects. Now she has returned with some absolute heat of a track titled “Watching Me,” and it is just that, ABSOLUTE HEAT. I just gave it a listen and was like whoa this joint right here is HOT! I will definitely spinning this into my DJ sets without a doubt. Here it is, give it a listen for yourself. “Watching Me,” by Renee Neufville… Enjoy.

To Practice Yoga

•October 23, 2015 • Leave a Comment

“To practice yoga, one should go to a secluded place and should lay kusa grass on the ground and then cover it with a deerskin and a soft cloth. The seat should be neither too high nor too low and should be situated in a sacred place. The yogi should then sit on it very firmly and practice yoga to purify the heart by controlling his mind, senses and activities and fixing his mind on one point”

The Bhagavad Gītā VI.11

She Watches Me

•July 31, 2015 • Leave a Comment

Each moment as I walk passed the window I can feel her watching over me.

Though as I peer through the window to get a glimpse of who she is, I see, nothing.

However I feel her presence cold but warming, bright but dim.

She continues to watch, observing from her viewpoint.

I continue to peer beyond the window and still I see nothing.

I then begin to feel her calling out to me, beckoning for my attention, directing me to look up, into the heaven.

Finally I see her, and discover who she is.

She is…

The Moon.
