SACRED SISTA CIRCLE : BELL HOOKS BOOK CLUB

Hey Hey Hey! Greetings Sacred Sista!

Do you struggle to really, deeply and unapologetically love yourself ? Do you struggle to build friendships with other black women? Do you hide your hurt behind being a ‘strong black women?’

This sista circle book club is the perfect space for you to do the inner work and nurture your black girl magic. This is different from standard book clubs and circles because I also teach a process for cultural healing, gentleness and compassion. In addition to studying a chapter from “Sista’s of the Yam, Black Women and Self Recovery.” by Bell Hooks. You’ll also learn :

  • Characteristics of black self hate.
  • 12 Tools for empoWOMBment.
  • 12 Promises of sacred self love.

The next session is all about how to deal with racial stress.

 

FREE EBOOK: HEARTWORK FOR RACIAL WELLNESS

Want a taste of the book club? After each live session, I send out heartwork (homework) which include journal prompts and audio reflections for a deeper exploration of the text. Today, I am excited to share the first session with you for free which explores internalised negative stereotypes, backlash after setting boundaries and the truth about how unsafe we feel within our families. There are also additional video training’s on how to get the best out of the heartwork and nurture your black girl bliss in the process.  For more info click YES, GIVE ME MY BOOK CLUB GIFT!!!!
