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.

It’s happening August 17th – August 20th online.
And it’s 100% free to participate!

OUR ORIGINS

 

Our first gathering took place pre-pandemic in February 2020 and was created to give more access to wellness and mental health resources to the BIPOC community specifically Black and POC women and femmes, non-binary and gender non-conforming folks. Through word of mouth our first gathering attracted thousands of participants across the globe. Little did we realize what was to come just around the corner a global pandemic, the murder of George Floyd, uprising in the name of Black lives and hate crimes against Asians and other communities of color.

 

Since that time we’ve expanded this grassroots effort and this year we’re over the moon to share that the 3rd Annual Global Healing Festival presented by Embodied Black Girl has 4 days of tranformational offerings to support our community!

Although we’ve expanded this gathering is still 100% free and 100% virtual to serve our global community.

This year our workshops will dive into topics like intergenerational healing, trauma, somatics, spirituality, leadership, embodiment and social change through experiential experiences weaving together art, movement, storytelling, pleasure and more.

 

It’s taking place from August 17th – August 20th all virtually.  Join us for free and invite your friends.

I’m grateful to share that my brand new interview with Mashable is out! This is my third time being interviewed and I’m honored! Shoutout to Chase DiBenedetto and Rebecca Ruiz! This go around, I was invited to speak about tactile tools that can help our mental health especially for folks that identify as NeuroSpicy.

Many educators have been using this particular tool, however, I can see how it’s useful to many folks who can use nervous systems support. Link in our stories @embodiedblackgirl 💜

I know deep in my bones that Black women deserve spaces where we are held.
Spaces that center our healing and liberation.

Spaces where we can soften.
Spaces where we can be tender.
Spaces where we no longer have to carry the burdens of the world.

It’s truly an honor to hold sacred space where we stand in our divinity.
Where intergenerational pain is transformed into power.
Where the blessings pour and we’re able to receive them.

This July, we’re gathering in breathtakingly beautiful Vieques, Puerto Rico for our Embodied Black Girl Retreat.

If you’re feeling the soul nudge to be there — listen. It’s going to be pure #blackgirlmagic 🖤

Early enrollment discount is available until Monday!
There are limited space left!

✨THIS WEDNESDAY✨

In these turbulent times, it’s so hard to not look at the sheer horror happening before our eyes.

At the same time, day in and day out I’m reminded when working directly with my community that the need is so great for the Black women and communities of color.

And my heart is big enough to hold them all.

Here’s the truth: I wasn’t sure if I was going to lead a retreat this year because of the times we’re in.

However, Spirit guided me to this exact place and revealed that this is meant to be a soul pilgrimage devoted to our individual and collective rebirth. Over the years, I’ve learned that when Spirit and the Ancestors’ are guiding its best to listen.

This July, we’re heading to Vieques to gather and create space to breathe. And for people that have been systemically denied rest and rejuvenation this is vital.

If you’re interested in attending please join me for a LIVE CALL (on zoom) happening TOMORROW (2/28) where I’ll be sharing all the beautiful details that can’t be relayed in a social media post.

To attend please DM @embodiedblackgirl “RETREAT” and we’ll add you to list to join us. ❤️✨🌺

It’s an absolute dream to share that our 2024 Embodied Black Girl Retreat is here!!! 🦋❤️‍🔥🌺

In a culture that have us forgetting our divinity, this is a sacred space where we remember — our worth, our ancestral gifts and our divinity.

We’re on the cusp of a new era. To honor this threshold, we’ll deepen into our individual and collective rites of passage and dream new realities.

Through sacred ceremony and council we’ll enter the portal to the next chapter of our soul (r)evolution.

We’ll spend 5 glorious days in Vieques, a gorgeous island with unspoiled beaches off the coast of Puerto Rico where on the clearest of nights, even the Milky Way becomes visible.

We’ll be staying at an Ayurvedic hotel (the only one in the Caribbean) with gorgeous accommodations. When I was guided to this location, I knew it would support the mind-body-soul transformations that would happen. We’ll have the place all to ourselves so, it’s going to be divine!

From a space of deep nourishment, we remember our wildness, we embody our pleasure, we transform through sisterhood, we root to your most expansive expression of life and leadership.

Also, for a limited time enjoy early enrollment pricing + reserve your space with only a $250 deposit!

If you feel called to join us, it would be an honor to hold space for your rebirth. ❤️

DM @embodiedblackgirl “RETREAT” for all the gorgeous details! 🖤✨🌺

✨Commune with us this Friday for Decolonial Visioning!!✨

It’s my yearly planning workshop but really it’s a space bursting with possibility. And while this workshop typically happens at the top of the year, clearly this year, Spirit had other plans.

And as I feel it into, I think it’s divine timing that we’re gathering during Black Futures Month, a time that celebrates our community’s history, beauty and the possibilities to come.

This month there are also celebrations of the Lunar New Year (the year of the Dragon), the day of love, and many festivals preparing for the Spring season (if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere).

However, the most magical part about this workshop is doing it in community! Because when we allow our vision to be held in community something exquisite always emerges.

Want to play?

Comment “VISION” and I’ll DM you the details. ❤️‍🔥💫✨
