These are not unprecedented times.

Our ancestors are calling.

Calling us to remember what they have endured and how they survived.

And their resilience still lives in us.

We hear our Ancestors’ voices and recognize their wisdom.
Join us as we combine new and ancestral healing techniques to reclaim the true radiance of our souls.
We do this work to strengthen our communities.
We do this work for our future generations,
for ourselves and for our predecessors.
And we rise strong, confident and radiant!

The Voice woke me out of a sound sleep, and said, "It's time for you to create a workshop for African American women to heal from the traumas of racism!"
Why were the ancestors calling on me at 3:00 a.m.?

What Does This Work Offer You?
Black folks carry the legacy of oppression in our bodies, our minds, and our souls.
This workshop offers Black women the chance to uncover racism's lies and step into the truth of who we are.

The Soul Restoration Journey is on temporary hiatus
while Erva Baden undergoes treatment for longtime and worsening sciatica.
Look for us to return in mid-February!
