This was such a gift, another glimpse of Jamaica. I admire Jamaican women tremendously tons of respect for them. Using the environment to empower and heal themselves, yes!

I've noticed the Jamaican women are quite tough compared to other women of the diaspora. I always felt that it was due to cultural and social causation and trauma. I pray that the society begins to address these issues and create therapeutic and healing processes, like this one. Honesty is the beginning of the process of change.

Jah bless, Imani! You are a modern day nanny maroon - showing our beautiful sisters how to fight against mental slavery but also seeking radical acceptance through surfing. So moving!

Love this! Imai keep doing this work. The ancestral trauma is still there, using the elements of water and reconnecting with MOTHER energy helps to reset and bring trust and empowers these women. I love water. I swim every day in a pool in London. But my next challenges to experience the wave. Thank you for sharing and helping these women. Making history. Maybe we will see a Jamaica women’s surfing in Olympic some day.
