✨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. ❤️‍🔥💫✨

Happy New Year Beautiful People! 🎉 I’m wishing you a year filled with abundant blessings!

I woke up in 2024 finding myself on Katt Williams’ internet. Okaaaay. IYKYK. 🤣

This is the age of radical embodied truth telling, where the lies of the colonialist-patriarchy can no longer survive.

Archaic systems will crumble.

And while they do, many will be clutching their pearls and trying their best to take down Black women.

However, from Sojourner Truth to Harriet Tubman to Ketanji Brown Jackson to Claudine Gay the Ancestors have our back. Always and in all ways.

And honey, we were made for these times.

Now, we’re also being asked to show up as our most embodied selves.

That’s why I’m overjoyed (and fired up!) to be hosting SOFTEN a free 3 day retreat to cultivate the depths of your healing, ancestral gifts and leadership.

Because..

🌺In a culture deceived into forgetting,
we must choose to make our medicine.
🌺In a culture founded in violence,
we must choose our liberation.
🌺In a culture flattened by erasing our humanity,
we must orient towards our softness again and again.

And for those of us who live in bodies that have been systemically brutalized our tenderness is deeply rooted to resistance and liberation.

Our softness reminds us of what we’re fighting for, crying for, rallying for and what our ancestors lived and died for.

Join me (THIS FRIDAY - SUNDAY) for 3 days gathered around the virtual fire for teachings, ceremony, meditation, inquiries and guidance.

Let’s get tender together. To join us comment SOFTEN or head over to the link in bio @embodiedblackgirl ❤️‍🔥 #embodiedblackgirl

I can’t let this year go by without sharing this beauty and magic from our Embodied Black Girl Retreat because this experience changed us on a cellular level. And what better day to share than on the Winter Solstice! ✨

I’ve been trying to find the words but sometimes there are no words that can ever capture a moment. And that’s okay. It’s a timeless moment beyond words.

An emergence from one of the softest places possible.
Held in ways we didn’t know we needed.
A remembrance that we are indeed our Ancestors’ wildest dreams embodied.
Hearts broken open.
Sweet sisterhood.

I bow to Spirit for allowing us to keep our Divine appointment.

I bow to each of these beautiful, brilliant, powerful and tender Black women and femmes.

It was an honor to laugh together, cry together, dream together and alchemize together.
I love you all so deeply.

May the medicine we weaved create a legacy of goodness for us all and our communities. ❤️❤️❤️

✨❄️Winter Solstice Blessings!✨❄️

Full Moon Blessings!

I`m giving and living from the overflow at the moment as I`ve recently returned from our absolutely beautiful retreat!

I`m still finding the words but what I`ll share for now...

I was reminded that doing this work is remembrance for us all.

The medicine and love was deep y`all and to be with Black women + femmes embracing our birthright of pleasure, joy and liberation was soul nourishing and life-giving in all ways!

And all of this goodness inspired me to offer support to cultural alchemists and intergenerational medicine makers (that`s you!) who`re devoted to the blooming of their work in this season + beyond.

So, this week only I`m offering 90 minute deep dives at a discount!

In a world where we`re witnessing (and in many cases living) violence on the regular it can be easy to become frozen and lose connection to our personal and collective north star. We need spaces where we not only challenge dominant narratives but that also orient us towards the possibilities of a new world. Because at this time our deepest medicine is so needed.

If you`re craving this kind of support then join me for an intimate deep dive like none other.

Private 1:1 Deep Dive (72 hours only!)

Here’s how we’ll flow…
If this is your first deep dive l`ll spend time in ceremony prior to our time together communing with the essence and soul of your work. When we gather we`ll open the portal for guidance from Spirit, our beloved Ancestors (yours + mine) and wise Guides. In this deeply relational and somatic space we explore what wants to be birthed and uproot what stands in the way of it`s blooming. The magic that happens here is something I`m always awe of and I can`t wait for you to experience it!

If we`ve had a deep dive before we can jam on any number of things such as...

Whew that was all the ❤️‍🔥❤️‍🔥❤️‍🔥 in an hour!!!

Thank you Dr. Jennifer Mullan @decolonizingtherapy for this nourishing conversation and for all the folks who joined us live!

Here’s a preview of what we discussed…

- Why Decolonizing Therapy is vital right now and needed in our healing and therapeutic spaces.
- The harm and violence that Eurocentric mental health particularly inflicts on Black folks and POC.
- Dehumanization + mental health and how this impacts our relationship to rage.
- The role of rage in healing
- The soft life + rage (this is juicy!)
and more!

Press play and also please amplify within your community!

Also, please pre-order Dr. Jenn’s book Decolonizing Therapy that’s out in the world on November 7th! It’s so important to support Black authors and authors of The Global Majority as more voices are being silenced. This is important work for us all!
