Soulfulness is offered as a path to healing, wellness, and resilience. It is conceptualized as a quality of experiencing and inner knowing that is deeply connected and connecting, an enlivened inner attunement that illuminates authentic lived experience and radiates into outer expression. It is an “interconnected aliveness” that is often experienced as a resonating, liberating, life-enhancing, spiritually-infused energy of deep connectivity and inspired expression.
Soulfulness is inspired by and infused with African and diasporic cultural themes including: an ethos of interconnectedness, a relational/communal sensibility, the centrality of spirituality, a holistic orientation to human experience, creativity and improvisation, music and movement, and overcoming adversity. Ultimately, soulfulness is a path to liberation– experientially, relationally, spiritually, and collectively.
