Exoteric Esoteric is a collection of stories that recall archived inherited ancestral racial trauma and explore the fragility of our internal hidden or esoteric world. This is a meditative look into the conscious undoing of our co-collaborated world. In order for the undoing to occur, we must face our shadows and the harsh truths we have inherited.
The intention is to provoke uncomfortable but necessary conversations by emphasizing our similarities in the experiences of intergenerational racial trauma.
Opportunities are created to break generational cycles of trauma; when we raise awareness of the self, connect to the body in the now, moving beyond our cultural and psychic dimensions and breathe into the experience. Through these acts, we can liberate ourselves from societal conditioning.
Through this liberation, we alter our future.
