WHAT IS THE URBAN BUSH EDUCATOR ? WHAT SERVICES DO WE PROVIDE?
The Urban Bush Educator is a sovereign experiential /educational EMPOWERMENT process created from the belief that all people have the right to live in alignment with Natural Law, which supports creation and the balance of LOVE,FREEDOM and PEACE.
We see healthy community as a collective regenerative body honored and supported as a whole system comprised of living organisms endowed with; the right of will,the freedom of expression of such will in fulfillment of their purpose of creation.
We believe that all people hold cellular memory of a time where people lived in harmony with themselves, the environment and the living Earth and know that we all can play a role in naming and reversing the phenomenon of oppression, sickness, miseducation ,climate change ,colonization, greed and domination through taking responsible action to Heal from betrayal and other organized collective action .
WE HONOR AND OBSERVE ALL NATURAL PROCESSES AND LAWS
We realize that although oppression is upheld through institutional and structural bias, we can dismantle and discharge the internalized aspects that plays into the larger systems, by taking back our minds,bodies and Spirits.
WE CAN CULTIVATE CHANGE BY DEPARTING FROM VICTIMHOOD , HEALING AND INCLUDING DENIED ASPECTS OF OURSELVES WHILE EXPLORING WAYS TO HARNESS INDIVIDUAL AND COLLECTIVE POWER FOR THE HIGHEST GOOD.
Our processes are fully experiential and unearth ancient understandings of self-sustainance , employ indigenous plant,sound and energy healing rituals that help humans achieve well being through re-membering , overcoming FEAR and discharging TRAUMAS.
Regardless of where we live :- a poor rural village of a third world country, or a tiny apartment in the South Bronx or Brooklyn it is our natural birthright to receive natural education which involves caring for ones self and others and living in harmony with the seasons and living systems . It is our birthright to have the time and space needed to learn about natural cycles in order to take responsibility for our wellbeing. This experience is not just for the privileged or wealthy.
The Urban Bush Educator is the conscious creation work of multi-dimensional healer/raphaologist Yonnette Fleming and is inspired by her connection to the "Bush peoples of our world" (first tribes/ nations of civilization)and lifetime of experiential liberation work with the plant, animal, rock, human and Spirit realms.
Each course offering is a gift to the "Soul" and supports ones natural abilities in practical,grounded ways.
We are a sovreign educational collective which advance higher forms of thoughts and consciousness for living free from suffering,pain and re-connecting to living systems.

Why and Where will we create Healing farms, apothecaries ,community processes and Churches of the Soil?
In every corner of the world, people are huddling to find out and learn what ancient people have understood for years about creating a healthy community. Deep inside we know there is a way to create communities where people value happiness over consumption, nurture deep respect for the soil, grow food without chemicals, where extreme poverty and extreme wealth are considered an equal travesty to justice, where people understand their landscape or environment and can achieve wellbeing through utilizing healing plants and foods,where creativity and cooperation are cultivated as communal values instead of competition.
Our processes are created to foster community resilience and is particularly suitable for communities where:
Nature has been paved over and a concrete jungle created.
Policies are made to benefit the wealthy and further increase the wealth gap.
Housing Developments takes precedence over human/community development causing gentrification to override community self determination .
Fresh nutritious food and basic human services are not readily available to all community residents.
Modern processed food diet is wreaking havoc on the health of its members causing over reliance on pharmaceutical drugs.
The environment is violent, dense and toxic and people have forgotten the basics of humanity or how to care for each other as a community.
Grassroots work has been suffocated by NGO's and large non profits, and grassroots leadership /decision making ability is discouraged
Health and social disparities and inequities exist
Feminine power /leadership is suffocated and devalued .
Food access and service programs are implemented without a community equity analysis.
Developers are not required to conduct an equity impact analysis similar to the environmental impact analysis before implementing development plans in a community.
