White on White crime more prevalent than Black on Black

In the United States, a White person is almost six times more likely to be killed by another White person than by a Black person, according to FBI homicide data. In 2011, there were more cases of Whites killing Whites than there were Blacks killing Blacks. However, the mainstream media obsesses over Black on Black violence and rarely mentions the problem of White on White violence.

Dear white people:

What’s wrong? Do you not have any positive male role models to look up to?

It’s all the Starbucks, isn’t it?

What kind of music are you listening to, white people?

What movies and TV shows are you watching?

Why do you do this to yourselves, white people?

Is it because your homes are so patriarchal?

When are prominent members of the white community going to address this problem of white-on-white violence?

What is behind this breakdown of the white family?

Somatic BodyWork - Only a few spaces left!

Somatic bodywork is extremely useful in opening and releasing the contractions, stories, emotions, and safety strategies that have been held in our bodies over time. It moves us toward more feeling and aliveness, and greater capacity to be present in our bodies and ultimately in our lives.

My practice uses somatic bodywork, and integrates reiki and acupressure techniques to invite whatever is no longer useful to move through, creating better energy flow, greater alignment, and more space for new ways of being. We are resilient and creative beings with a natural capacity to heal, change, and transform. Given access to the resources and support needed healing, change, and transformation happens. Somatic bodywork supports our own resilience, by tapping into our ability to imagine a positive possibility for the future.
