Vibes Included

What is the injustice we are solving?
Vibes Included is creating a community that encourages "blind" communication. I guide participants in a relaxation technique and then partner them up with someone they do not know. Someone from the community leads a conversation based on a central theme, and the participants are to answer these questions - with their eyes closed the entire time. This practice serves as a form of therapy for many - that they learn how to speak with anyone, of any age, of any race, with any hair style, with any outfit. What is irrelevant remains irrelevant. Spirit comes to light and they all recognize that when speaking with their eyes closed.

Now, moving forward with this community, I wish to bring it to foster homes. To communities who need to bridge that gap. To foster intimacy. To build new friendships. To make everyone realize "I am just as complex as you are."

This project will bring people together. From the core. And that's what we need now more than ever.


I started hosting these gatherings about 3 years ago in my apartment in Queens, NY. Just friends. When I moved back to South Florida, I continued hosting the gatherings in my backyard - friends, friends of friends, family. And now I have a venue in Wynwood, Miami where I host them on a biweekly basis. Again, I have high hopes of planting seeds in communities that need it most.
This project doesn't have any updates to show.
