Humane Police Training Offered Nationally
History Month

“During Black History month 2023 the nation’s police culture/industry and those who serve in it, will have an opportunity to learn about Mindful Law Enforcement, Ubuntu philosophy, and training designed to increase humane professional performance in protective services. “

Just when you think that you know that there is a clear connection between White racism and Black murders by police. Just when historical data indicate that fear mongering, abuse of power, implicit bias rooted in slave management methods have created a police culture where unjustified violence can go on unaccounted. Just when we think that we have it all figured out …, along comes five Black police officers to brutally beat and kill a young black male in Memphis stopped for a minor traffic infraction.

The recent occurrence with Tyre Nichols has again impelled many of us to pause and look deeper for causes beyond racism that can have the same devastating effect on those in communities of color. Following the George Floyd incident, the nation stopped to analyze and reflect on cause and effect regarding police misconduct. That pregnant pause ultimately gave birth to the creation of the George Floyd Justice and Policing Bill. Though yet to be passed for Police Reformation, the bill is designed to address a wide range of issues regarding policing, to redefine best practices and to rehumanize the current learning curriculum. The hope is that it will render improvement in police training which lays the foundation for how officers perform in the field in the line of duty.

There is an urgent need for the Senate to pass the George Floyd Bill; however, laws and training equipment, alone will not sufficiently address the core issues regarding inhumane police practices and the all too frequent reckless disregard for the value of human lives. Despite the public outcry that “Black lives matter,” heralded in 2020, and the use of more advance training equipment since that time, there continued to be an average of 1000 Black male deaths per year that resulted from police brutality.

The fatal beating of Tyre Nichols by Black police officers does not negate the nefarious role that racism plays in policing whether practiced by Whites or Blacks on Blacks. It does, however, require intensifying the investigation as to what drives brutal policing, regardless of the victim’s ethnic makeup/identity. Following the Memphis incident, Janai Nelson NAACP Legal Defense Fund President echoed the necessity for police reform. She emphasized that what is called for at this time is a total revamping or replacing of the whole system with something that is entirely different and that values the life of human beings.

Currently in several dimensions of human development, there is total revamping, re-examining, and re-imaging as to how we can better manage our behavior as human beings. Literature like Raising Good Humans is flooding the early childhood education market; mindful conflict resolution is now frequently encouraged in the mental health field; and breath/meditation energy-manipulation strategies are becoming standard stress-response recommendations for increasingly more situations. Research indicates that the practice of mindful yogic techniques can create impulse control and assist with internalizing feelings of compassion and kindness, even when those emotions are most challenged. Yoga, now practiced by over 37 million adults throughout the nation, has assumed a leading role as an example of how breathing, stretching, strengthening, and meditating can cultivate greater personal health. These techniques are proven to nurture appreciation for one’s own life, and while acknowledging different ethnic and cultural identities, can foster respect and compassion for the life of others.

It’s now time for America’s police culture to include human-value concepts from diverse ethnic groups as it reforms its educational philosophies, training goals and curriculum content. Ubuntu, a Zulu word meaning humanness is a social and spiritual philosophy that has served as a framework for many African societies. “I am because we are” suggests that a person is a better person through another person, and that one becomes the best human by applying love and compassion to others. Or perhaps those who makeup and serve as part of police culture might now need to embrace the vision that Dr. Martin Luther King (a Yogi-peace philosopher in his own right) popularized regarding his concept of a “Beloved Community.” Dr. King envisioned those who live in and serve in our society/community, uphold a shared reverence for it whereby justice, equality, respect, and love for one’s fellow human beings would be a common practice. A philosophy/practice whereby trained officers would be able to mindfully acknowledge their police culture, integrate with their ethnic culture, and connect with feelings toward their human culture, all while serving in the line of duty.

Starting this Black History month Higher Yoga Protective Edu/Training (HYPE/T) a newly released Nationally Certified Police (NCP) online training course, will be available throughout the nation. The course was researched, designed, and independently produced by HYer DYnamic Health Discoveries (HY-DY Inc.) a nonprofit composed of concerned Black citizens, and others from marginalized communities in various states. The HYPE/T course provides certified training units to those in the field of law enforcement, and it educates community members about new methods now available in protective services. The goal of the course is to improve the personal health and professional performance of police. It was designed to train officers to mitigate impulsive violent responses, to claim equanimity, internalize feelings of compassion, and to formulate a healthy vicarious connection with other human lives. It was created to concretely influence Police Reformation (in-field training) and to play a functional role toward developing peace officers dedicated to rendering humane protective services to our “Beloved communities.”

Today is my Earth Day. The day that several decades ago the earth opened up giving birth to another human being requesting to be an active participant in the human evolution.  My gift from the earth was my presence with a promise to give back to the earth, the universe, and the many societies from which it is made.
 
My Earth Day provides me a chance to check-in, report, to make transparent that promise made to share in the creation of a more humane society.   On this Earth/birthday I give thanks for the Higher Yoga Protective Edu/Training course for allowing me to create  a platform on which wholesome human treatment can be taught.   Almost 2 years ago, following the George Floyd murder, the HYPE/T taskforce committed to developing coursework that would serve as meaningful and functional education for those in law enforcement. The recent HYPE/T online course notably certified by NCP, is my contribution to Police Reformation and to the reformatting of their training to encourage mindful Yoga practices in our protective service providers.

HY-DY Inc. Celebrating Juneteenth with New Programs/Products

On Monday June 20th Americans will acknowledge Juneteenth as a national holiday in recognition of Blacks’ liberation from enslavement. HY-DY Inc. a nonprofit owned by a Black female (Dr. Naima Lewis), will join thousands of others throughout the nation on that day in conveying what freedom means to Black charitable and educational organizations. This holiday will afford HY-DY a timely opportunity to share its concepts of freedom used to further liberate and expand on the education of those in protective services.

On Monday June 20th HY-DY will host the last public showing of its recently released Higher Yoga Protective Edu/Training (HYPE/T) online video for those in law enforcement. This groundbreaking educational product is the first of its kind to hit the law enforcement NCP (Nationally Certified Programs) marketplace and will launch HY-DY’s now available programs for those in public service.

HY-DY’s strategically crafted mindful Yoga programs are designed to specifically train those in protective services to breathe, stretch, and meditate on new methods that reform and expand the boundaries of their current curriculum. When peaceful practices are mindfully embedded into training programs, those who parole, who are hired to serve and protect “all lives,” will be taught to further liberate a sense of freedom and peace in communities of color.
