We are a collective of healers, bringing science and ancestral gifts to teams. 

Mitigating the negative impact of stress and vicarious trauma on our bodies and minds is vital for transforming societal oppressions. The healing workshops and one-on-one sessions are geared towards folks who are serving the community.

We subsidize the cost of services through grants and donations for those working in nonprofit community-based organizations. 

Values

Decolonize: Self-intervene on social forces that create dis-ease.

Wellness: Elevate wellbeing in self-sustaining ways.

Mission

We provide expertise on nonprofit research, structures, and practices that heal and strengthen teams in order to advance their work in transforming historical social trauma for which we are all the heirs.

Name

Too often, contracted facilitators represent colonization paradigms. We are conscientious about serving your team with a different, dynamic paradigm.    

Black and Brown women specialists will lead the project with your team, supporting the healing of your programs and staff from the impact of colonizing and racism that we have all inherited. 

We love curating specialists that match your team’s priorities.
