Healing the Black Woman 2021
#HealSis: Healing From The Inside Out
What would it mean to you to have a better and stronger relationship with your daughter? Your mother? Your sister? What would it mean for you to be better for yourself?
Healing the Black Woman was created for black girls and women ages 6 and up. This experience was created to break generational curses by reconecting bonds between mothers and daughters, sisters, women, period.
We often speak about the impact that father/daughter and mother/son relationships have on our lives but not very often do we expose and discuss the impact of mother/daughter relationships.
For centuries in the black community mothers and daughters have struggled to connect and have healthy bonds and it has hindered us in ways that are not being talked about enough. Healing the Black Woman was created for us!

I Am Not My Trauma: Re-discovering and Re-identifying You
Trauma happens! While it is one of the unfortunate life occurrences we prefer not to claim, it is a reality of being human. Oftentimes when we experience trauma we develop a familiar relationship with it that starts to determine our thoughts, behaviors and decision-making. Before long, we start to live a life that is trauma led instead of one where we are in control of the reins. Trauma takes over our identity and even in healing, if we are not intentional, our thoughts, behaviors and decision-making will still be representative of our trauma identity instead of our true identity. I Am Not My Trauma: Re-discovering and Re-Identifying You is a workshop setup to help attendees to recognize their trauma identities and do the work to peel back the layers of the false self that trauma creates so they can start to re-discover and re-identify with their true, healed selves.
