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.

PURCHASE THE FESTIVAL COLLECTION

We’re living in trying times. And during these times we can forget that life is a gift. It can be easy to get wrapped up in the never ending dramas (personal and collective) that seek to steal our peace and joy.

Personally, this season I’m turning my attention towards nourishment. In this time of contemplation and reclaiming my attention I’ve been taking a pause behind the scenes as I get ready to lead a retreat in Tulum, Mexico next month. 🌊🍍🌺

This retreat has been filled with such ease and I’ve trusted that the folks who were supposed to be there would gather. And I’m truly blown away by the beautiful Black women who’ve said yes. Tonight we had a pre-retreat gathering and my heart is full. I can’t wait to share space, break bread, adventure and bask under the stars. ✨✨✨

If this is your season of nourishment and you want to fill your cup to overflowing then I invite you to join us. We have 2 spots left and if you know in your soul it’s meant for you send me a dm and we’ll set up a time to chat to answer any questions you have.

It’s going to be dope AF magic and deep medicine. #fillyourcup #embodiedblackgirl #retreat #tulum

Rooted In Our Sacred Rage a session led by the brilliant Dr. Jennifer Mullan @decolonizingtherapy at @embodiedblackgirl #GlobalHealingFestival was pure 🔥🔥🔥

Dr. Mullan challenged us to reimagine our relationship with rage as sacred and shared tangible pathways to reclaim this necessary emotion.

At the end she led us through a powerful healing practice to release stuck emotions through EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique).
