We’ve been celebrated by:

We are living in revolutionary times.

Times that have challenged us to rise up in the name of liberation.
Times that have urged us to reclaim our magic and medicine.
Times that have called us to further divest from the systems that harm us.
Times that have reminded us that we are indeed our ancestors’ wildest dreams.

At this collective threshold, community matters more than ever.

We need one another.

To honor our grief.
To honor our joy.
To release our burdens.
And to vision decolonial possibilities.

Because we know in our bones…

Times like these are potent portals that can shape a new world. Global Healing Festival was created as a portal for Black women and femmes and folks of color to alchemize pain into power and possibility. A portal where our visions pollinate a new planet.

Together, some of the questions we’ll lean into:

  • What does it mean to heal intergenerationally?
  • What does it mean to move beyond surviving into thriving?
  • What does it mean to reclaim our animal bodies and connection to nature?
  • What does it mean to center ourselves unapologetically?
  • What does it mean to create new narratives beyond the colonial mind?

We’ve brought together today’s modern day wisdom keepers, respected elders, change-weavers, activists, organizers, visionary artists, leaders and culture-shapers of the Global Majority to explore these questions.

Through live experiential offerings you’ll explore the themes of intergenerational healing, trauma, somatics, spirituality, leadership, embodiment and social change while weaving arts, movement, storytelling, pleasure and more.

And for the first time ever, due to popular demand the festival collection is available for purchase at sliding scale!

You’ll receive over 30 hours of incredible immersive experiences at your fingertips.

Choose from the recommended tiers or name your own price within or above that range. No matter which tier you choose you’ll receive the same thing!

And when you purchase during the pre-sale period you’ll also receive $100+ off whatever tier you choose!

Your support will go towards the labor it took to create the festival, compensating our honored guests and creating programming to make healing and wellness resources accessible to communities of color.

Breathwork and Somatics for Intergenerational Healing



Embodied Black Girl stands for the embodied liberation of Black women and femmes globally. We’re devoted to creating safe, sacred and brave space for our sisters and siblings across the diaspora. We know that through our bodies we have the power to transform intergenerational trauma into intergenerational medicine that will support of our mental wellness and our individual and collective thriving and liberation.

We believe healing is personal and political; spiritual and corporeal. Our offerings weave together breathwork, somatic attunement, embodiment and creative practices and coaching for an integrative and transformative experience. Our work trauma is informed, somatically rooted and grounded in a revolutionary and decolonial lens. We’re here for radical healing to weave the new world from the inside out because the revolution is embodied.

Omgeee!!! That was so much fun! Thank you to everyone who showed up today. My heart is really full! 💜💜💜

I’m amazed that it’s been nearly 15 years since forging my path doing my soul’s work in the world.

In these years, I’ve learned a whole lot and this is the first time I’m talking about some of those hard won lessons. Over the years I’ve held space in person and virtually for thousands of folks of all backgrounds and it’s been a gift. Artists, activists, CEOs, movement builders, healers, birth workers + more all medicine people doing work that’s so needed in the world.

I hope some of these lessons and framings are of service to you. I also share about Decolonial Leadership - a council, a circle, a caucus to alchemize your ancestral gifts and galvanize your deepest work.

I’m inviting in women who want to sit together in a wisdom council with those who care deeply, deeply care.

❤️‍🔥This is for those who want to relate to your work as a devotional path of stewardship.

❤️‍🔥This is for those who want to move beyond a culture that centers premature death, destruction and depletion and recognize that you deserve to be sustained by your work.

❤️‍🔥This is for those who want to share your deep medicine as a practice of reverence to your elevated Guides, Ancestors and Spirit.

❤️‍🔥This is for those who want to cultivate a deep relationship with your intuition and trust the medicine that lives in your bones.

❤️‍🔥This is for those who want to lay down the weapons of martyrdom and embrace divine reciprocity.

I truly know that our soul’s work is our contribution to the whole and integral in creating ecosystems and economies of care that center justice, liberation and dignity for all.

You can explore all the details and apply at DecolonialLeadership.com and if you want to connect with me there’s an option to schedule a time in my calendar too (link in bio @embodiedblackgirl).

Thanks for being here. 💜

There were so many magical moments at our last retreat! Too many to name, but here’s a few…
🧘🏿‍♀️Morning yoga and being serenaded with a variety of instruments.
🌊The music of the Caribbean Sea.
☀️Waking up at sunrise and greeting ourselves and one another with love and reverence.
🥑🍉🥭The food, ohhh the food. Incredible!!!
💦Skinny dipping in the ocean.
🌀Deep soul shares.
🤣Laughing so hard our sides hurt.
❤️And the best part — sisterhood, being seen without pretense, just love.
So grateful for this time. These women. Our community. 🙏🏾💖
Our next retreat is in November and we have 1 spot left! If you’re feeling called to be there dm me and let’s chat. #embodiedblackgirl

The brilliant Dr. Jennifer Mullan @decolonizingtherapy sharing about energetic boundaries. This is from an amazing session at our Global Healing Festival last month!

With the news this week of men policing women’s bodies and weaponzing therapeutic concepts 🙄 let’s do a refresher on what boundaries are and are not. 🤗
