What’s It About?

Facing and healing intergenerational trauma is a necessary step for reclaiming our authentic selves and stepping powerfully toward our visions of a transformed world. As African-Americans we must wonder how our ancestors survived 400+ years of oppression, violence to mind, body, and spirit, and systemized, legalized racism; from colonialist America, through the Civil War, through the Jim Crow era and into the present day. The traumas that have been experienced by our people continue to affect us in the present day. The effects may be subtle or overt. We need to recognize and heal from the effects of intergenerational trauma.

We need to reclaim the truth of who we are, our souls radiance, from the lies that come from the messages of racism and sexism. Those lies diminish our true, radiant, authentic selves.

We are not ugly, we are beautiful.
We are not dumb, we are brilliant.
We are not lazy, we are diligent.

We are not any of the diminishing stories that have been placed upon us throughout the history of this country.

In this program participants will:

  • Journey inward to uncover the erroneous stories we’ve been taught, and where they live in our bodies;
  • Do the work necessary to release and eradicate old stories and let our true radiance shine forth.

We do this work in a supportive community of women dedicated to our own healing.
