LEADERSHIP MENTOR, SOMATICS + EMBODIMENT TEACHER, GUIDE
Hi, I’m Thérèse, I’m the founder of Embodied Black Girl! I’m a Black woman, a Somatic and Embodiment Teacher, a Decolonial Leadership Coach, an Anti-Oppression Facilitator and a lifelong Artist of many disciplines. I’m also a mother of a magical being, a daughter, a sister, an auntie and a friend to many beloveds.
The seed of Circle of Reclamation was planted in 2016.
Circle of Reclamation was birthed from noticing the disparities in access to healing for Black women and femmes.
Circle of Reclamation was birthed from a lifetime of being an artist and all that comes with it.
Circle of Reclamation was birthed from my deepest pain and my greatest joys.
Circle of Reclamation was birthed from over two decades of personal healing work and over 15 years of being a sacred space holder for visionary people.
Circle of Reclamation was birthed from being raised in a family of healers, artists and activists.
I envisioned a space where deeply embodied leadership meant the lived experiences of those who’ve been silenced would be centered.
I envisioned a space where embodied healing incorporated trauma informed and grief informed care.
I envisioned a space where we practiced nervous system regulation.
I envisioned a space that knew we couldn’t get free if we don’t address the ways we are shaped by our culture.
I envisioned a space where we are all leaders and practice what it means to be in community.
I envisioned a space that believed that we all were worthy to be well and we would remember what’s been lost.
I envisioned a space that was dripping with sacredness.
And this blossomed into Circle of Reclamation.
If your heart says yes, it would be an honor to serve as both your guide and sister on this beautiful journey!
