Are you ready to start living beyond survival?
Are you a black woman who relates to any of these?
- You struggle with confidence and low self esteem.
- You do the self help work alone but long to be part of a sistahood.
- You’re afraid to heal with other black women because you were bullied by them.
- You never feel black enough, pretty enough or good enough.
- You have an unhealed mother wound.
- You feel invisible but also find it hard being seen.
- You’re tired of feeling invisible in white healing spaces.
I was inspired to build this space after hearing so many stories from sista’s who wanted to do their healing work, but couldn’t find a space that felt safe enough for them to speak their truth without judgment. If you identify with any of the above, you’re not alone. The Sacred Sista Sanctuary mastermind is the ultimate, virtual wellbeing experience to awaken and embody your feminine power.

WHAT ARE SISTA'S SAYING ABOUT THE SANCTUARY?
‘Working with June has been transformational for me. Having attended various programs on self care and healing it struck me that they could not fully benefit me because they didn’t have the cultural context, or understand the experiences unique to women of African and Caribbean descent.
June provides a safe space where you can speak your truth without judgment or criticism, which gives you confidence to learn how to set healthy boundaries with your friends and family. Working with her has allowed me to look deep within, to have significant insights and breakthroughs which I would not have accomplished if I was on this healing journey on my own.
She gives toolkits on how we as Black women can navigate the system of racism we live under; she helps us find the language to articulate what it means to live under this system that for a long time I could not name, and for a long time not even aware was affecting me.
This work is not easy. It compels you to question everything about who you are and whether holding on to certain beliefs are benefitting you. To live authentically you’ve got to do work like this; and with lots of humor, straight talking and love, June is your guide on how to confront social and cultural sacred cows and taboos, and to lay bare the ways Black women have had to literally carry the burden of the world. Once you know you can’t un-know.’
