We’ve been celebrated by:

a podcast about
decolonizing our imagination, healing intergenerationally and birthing revolutionary
work and worlds.


I’m so honored that you’re here!

I’m Thérèse Cator and I’m the Founder of Embodied Black Girl and the host of the Embodied Black Girl Podcast. I’m also a mother, Decolonial Leadership Mentor, and Embodiment Practitioner and Teacher, a Healer and a multi-disciplinary Artist.

I’ve spent over 15 years guiding visionary humans to remember their wholeness, reclaim their radiance and untether from colonial conditioning in life and leadership in the name of healing and liberation for us all. My work lies at the intersection of leadership, spirituality, healing, somatics, mindfulness, decolonization and social change.

This podcast centers how we can deeply embody our liberation, healing and leadership to weave the new world. There will be thought-provoking conversations with visionary humans, personal stories and lessons and more.

You’re invited to join our podcast circle to receive exclusive bonuses and more.

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 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. 💜

✨FRIDAY 9/8 ✨
Whew! We made it to the end of summer! The first day of school was today and we celebrated with delicious vegan carrot cake!!! 🍰 So good!

Today was cake but tomorrow I’m spilling the tea!!! 🍵💅🏾

I’m going to be sharing all about Decolonial Leadership - a council, a circle, a caucus to alchemize your ancestral gifts and galvanize your deepest work.

If you crave support for your work in the world in a way that will blow your heart wide open AND that weaves somatics with the sacred in a way that’s not only magical but practical then you’ll want to join me.

This container is so special and I can’t wait to share it with you. 😊

I’ll be also sharing hard won lessons on honoring my soul’s work for the past 15 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.

For the first time I’m sharing some of the lessons I’ve learned along the path.

I’ll be going live on the @embodiedblackgirl IG page so join me there! Friday, September 8th at 1pm EST. Click on the reminder button to set a notification.

This one, I come back to over and over again.

You Change.
All that you Change
Changes you.

is Change.
Is Change.

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. 🤗
