Hi Everyone! It’s your girl Wavee Goddess, and I wanted to share a little blog about my experience in participating in Baltimore City’s Healing City Summit 2022. This year we were honored to participate in this impactful event , which was held both virtually and in-person during the first week of March. The in-person portion of the event was held at Coppin State University. Wavee Goddess Holistics was honored to be a part of such an event, as healing is our business! We take pride in providing tools and information to the public to assist with healing trauma. Many big organizations and small businesses were in attendance, including GBMC (Greater Baltimore Medical Center), Gilchrist Hospice, barbers, beauty salons, fitness enthusiasts, and wellness advocates, to name a few. There was also a guest appearance by the Orioles mascot, cotton candy, popcorn, and an exceptional dance performance by the youth.
Despite the beauty and ingenuity of Baltimore, many inhabitants of this city are affected by post-traumatic stress resulting from adverse childhood events such as physical abuse, mental abuse, sexual abuse, gun violence, and substance abuse, to name a few. Research suggests a strong correlation between these adverse events and negative physical and behavioral outcomes into adulthood. A survey conducted by the census bureau reported that 42% of adults in Baltimore had experienced at least three or more adverse childhood events. That is a lot of trauma!
The Healing City Summit 2022 allowed small businesses and organizations to interact with the youth and the community by providing valuable resources to help combat the devastating effects of trauma. Wavee Goddess Holistics had the opportunity to teach and demonstrate the positive impact of Breathwork and Sound Healing on the physical and emotional body. We were excited to share our knowledge of various healing crystals and how they assist in healing the energetic centers (Chakras and nadis) within the body. Additionally, we interacted with the community and donated over 400 plus writing implements to the swag bags handed out at the in-person portion of the event.
Healing trauma is essential to maintaining good health and well-being. Unfortunately, most people do not place mental health and wellness on their list of priorities, despite their impact on our daily lives. Unprocessed traumatic events from our childhood negatively impact our subconscious mind, fostering behaviors and systems of thought that do not serve our highest good. Events such as Healing City Summit 2022 are essential because they provide valuable resources for cities like Baltimore and highlight the importance of addressing mental and physical issues. By proactively addressing our past trauma, we can begin to heal and free ourselves, allowing us to live healthier and more productive lives.
Pranayama Breathwork, Sound Healing, and Theta Healing are all wonderful alternative healing modalities that can significantly assist in healing trauma, and we were honored to be able to share those tools at this healing event. There are great articles on this website on Pranayama Breathwork and Sound Healing, so please feel free to check them out! Until next time, I’m wishing you nothing but peace, blessings, and prosperity. Namaste
