Shrink in B6

Everyone needs a shrink.

The Shrink in B-6 is an upcoming web series by ATL indie art film house, House of June. It centers around Nadia West, a psychology graduate school dropout who loses her job as a waitress. While low on cash, she is given an ultimatum by her roommate Farrah. As a result, Nadia turns to the ever-so-trustworthy Craiglist to post an ad for her new services: “affordable and intimate counseling sessions in her apartment.”

Inside/Out

I was messaged by House of June, an indie art film production company in Atlanta, with a lovely note and links to episodes of their webseries, “The Shrink in B6”. I’m so glad that I’ve watched the two episodes that they have on YouTube. So, so very glad. I’m also chuffed that they reached out to me to spread the word about their dramedy.

“The Shrink in B6″ centers around best friends (now ex-best friends…you have to watch to find out why!) Nadia and Farrah who are going through financial troubles. Nadia, played by the wonderfully natural and grounded Shayla Love Washington, is a grad school dropout who has been recently fired as a waitress. In other words, her life just became one big, epic HOT mess. Farrah, deliciously and humorously portrayed by actress Tabby Molapo, is less than understanding and gives Nadia a few days to get her act…

TeaTime with the Mad Artist

1979513_593456124072768_393297649_n A little over a week ago, I was contacted by Ebony Blanding of the House of June because she was digging my blog and wanted to know if I would be willing to review the House of June’s latest project. After reading their reasoning why they started this, I couldn’t help but say yes. With that being said, my opinions of this series are my own and are not influenced by outside sources.

Visualize Happiness :) Inspired by a Snowpocalypse in Atlanta.

Here’s an emotion that was literally SUCKED out of existence from all commuting Atlantans yesterday: HAPPINESS

Every source and network linked to media highlighted all the fear, rage, sadness, and disorder that has enveloped Atlanta through this crisis. I sit here being thankful for my short experience 2.5 hours on Peachtree to travel 6 miles of discomfort as I hear stories pile in of much more emotional and physical trauma and anxiety. My whole city needs a hug.

We have all been faced with some heavy challenges. Tomorrow we all have to return to our normal lives and function again at our best. How do we begin to get back to the place we all were before all this befell our city? The first thing that made sense to me was a visualization exercise that my yoga teacher and friend Rosalyn led us through at Active Sol during a Wednesday night community class.

An interesting perspective by Matthieu Ricard on using meditation to nurture the causes of HAPPINESS.

Sit in a comfortable position. Your body remains in an erect but not tense posture with eyes gently open. For five minutes, breathe calmly, noticing the in-an-out flow of your breath. Experience the gradual calming of chaotic thoughts. When thoughts arise, neither attempt to block them nor let them multiply. Simply continue to watch your breath.

Next, instead of paying attention to outer sights, sounds, and events, turn your “gaze” inward and “look” at the mind itself. “Looking” here means observing your awareness itself, not the content of your thoughts. Let the mind gently come to rest, as a tired traveler finds a pleasant meadow in which to sit for a while.

Then, with a deep feeling of appreciation, think of the value of human existence and of its extraordinary potential for flourishing. Be aware, too, that this precious life will not last forever and that is essential to make the best possible use of it. Sincerely examine what counts most in life for you. What do you need to accomplish or discard in order to achieve authentic well-being and live in a meaningful existence? When the factors that contribute to true happiness have become clear to you, imagine them begin to bloom in your mind. Resolve to nurture them day after day.

End your meditation be letting thoughts of pure kindness embrace all living beings.

Feel better 🙂
