Join us for a 3-Day Black History Month (BHM) Community Healing Ceremony - A Time to Honor Our Ancestors and Reflect on Our Goals

It's always time to honor our ancestors, but now it's also time to reflect on our goals, as the end of the first quarter is fast approaching.

A 3-Day Fast & BHM Community Ceremony will take place on Friday, 2/23 at 8 AM - Monday 2/26 at 8 AM, 2024, and it's open to anyone with wifi access. This event is an opportunity to reset, realign, and remember our past strengths and weaknesses while recommitting to our goals.

Why are we fasting?

Listen... give your body a break! You've always got it digesting something. Toxic food, toxic emotions, toxic environments.. allow just a few moments of rest to give your body time to reset the imbalances it carries.

Whenever one eliminates habits from their routine, it causes them to slow down and be patient with themselves. With our theme for this fast being "Do It For The Ancestors" we are taking this time also to reflect and reconnect with those who inspire us through their sacrifice and positive forward thinking that brought us to where we are today. It's also a time to eliminate any obstacles that may be hindering our progress and commit to making positive changes in our lives.

When is the fast?

The fast will begin on Friday, February 23, 2024, at 8 AM, and will continue until Sunday, February 25, 2024, at 8 PM.

Where are we doing this?

The event will be virtual, so you can participate from anywhere in the world! Make sure to follow Amawi on IG at @amawiredefines to check in on IG live at 8 am, 1 pm, and 8 pm (CT) each day during the fast to join in community breathing, motivation, and fasting tips.

How am I doing this?

Don't worry! I said this is for all levels. If you've absolutely never fasted before, you're just going to choose one thing (that's right) to give up for three days. That thing could be soda pop, potato chips, or it could be watching scary movies. It's completely up to you. Don't overwhelm yourself, but don't underwhelm yourself either. Give yourself the benefit of the doubt. If you want to raise your vibration, you have to be willing to let go of things that no longer serve you.

We will have three daily check-ins, which will be streamed or held on Zoom (TBD). These check-ins will guide how to fast and what to expect during the event. PDFs will also be provided with more information on how to participate.

What are the reasons why people fast?

There are many reasons why people fast, including religious, dietary, astrological, seasonal, cultural, and scientific reasons. Some famous political fasting movements include Mahatma Gandhi's 24-day fast to bring attention to British involvement in India and Jesus' 40-day fast in the desert to bring about divine understanding. Our indigenous ancestors also fasted before the harvest due to a dwindling food supply and the anticipation of a large upcoming feast.

Purpose of the 3-Day Fast:

The Black History Month 3-Day Fast has several purposes:

1. Cultural: To honor and celebrate the cultural heritage of Black people.

2. Ceremonial: To hold a sacred ceremony to connect with our ancestors and the reasons we set out to achieve our goals.

3. Personal Development: To provide an opportunity for personal growth and reflection.

4. Educational: To educate ourselves and others about the importance of Black history and culture.

5. Healing: To take a break from unhealthy habits and food choices, and to focus on nourishing our bodies with healthy choices.

Join us for this powerful event as we honor our ancestors, reflect on our goals, and fast together as a community. This is a time to reset, realign, and recommit to our goals, while also connecting with our cultural heritage and the sacrifices of our ancestors. Don't miss out on this opportunity for personal growth and transformation.
