Dr. NYC Is Back for More With I Forgive Me Part 2
The Ladies Put a Demand in the Air for Part 2 of the I Forgive Me Women's Symposium and Dr. NYC Delivered!
Prior to the event beginning you could feel peace and tranquility in the air as the natural sunlight piercing through the windows shone upon the skin of each woman. Spirit filled Gospel Music danced through the air into the ears of all present. This spirit filled music assisted in setting the atmosphere and preparing the heart and soul of the women for the wealth of empowerment, support and love that momentarily would be infused throughout the room.
Prior to the event beginning, Dr. NYC the Founder & CEO of the I Forgive Me Movement entered the room with light and love. She personally greeted each guest and thanked them for being present. Dr. NYC then revved the sea of women up by reminding them they all are survivors and asked each survivor to greet three other survivors and give authentic compliments. Hugs, laughter and conversation caused the room to swell with a sound of togetherness and joy,
The event then commenced with a soul stirring Inspirational Dance performed by Liz Barnes to the song Clean by Natalie Grant. Tears and tissues flowed as Liz Barnes took the ladies on a journey of reflection of imperfect lives that are still seen as worthy in God's eyes. This inspirational dance was followed by electric spoken word performed by The Poet Michelle.
The pieces she performed immediately arrested the attention of the women as she quickly fired off truths of challenges women faced and continue to face. The women in the room could be seen making non-verbal communication with The Poet Michelle as they nodded in agreement and shed tears while remembering their own stories.
Both performances by Liz Barnes and The Poet Michelle set the stage for the symposium's conversation to ensue. Dr. NYC dove right in and began discussing the difference between sleep and death and how it parallels to personal issues and challenges in life which are believed to be dead but in actuality are asleep. Panelist, Turkessa Lee unpacked the differences between sleeping issues and dead issues and gave revelation she received from her grandmother pertaining to love and hate. This topic alone was touched on by each panelist; Ann Torres, Linda Reaves, Illeen Whitehead, Turkessa Lee as well as many women who were in the audience who found the courage and strength to share in front of the crowd of 60 plus women and hundreds who were streaming live.
Dr. NYC also lead the panel and audience in addressing the following questions:
