My name is Ashley Wilkerson.
I don't have a pseudonym.
But I walk with glitter
underneath my tongue
So when I talk,
I can surprise them...
excerpt from Midnight Verses Morning Poems
"Ashley Wilkerson is intentional with her magic. She softens and activates people so they can get down to the work that matters."
What's Going On?
I've been teaching mindfulness in a soulful and creative way to elementary students and it's been bringing me lots of joy and 'aha' moments. For many years I've been providing trauma-informed care and safe spaces for all sorts of people, especially, African American boys and men through my Brother Breathe workshops and private sessions. I recently gave a a dharma talk at the Dallas Meditation Center entitled, It's Time For Beginner's Mind: Bowing To The Tiny Teacher Within."
There is an inner child within us all. I invite you to slow down and treat yourself with more care.
