ARE YOU A BLACK WOMEN WHO RELATES TO ANY OF THESE?
- You struggle with self love and confidence.
- You’ve been single for far too long or feel invisible in your relationship.
- You do the self help work alone but crave to be part of a sistahood.
- You have a mother wound or history of being bullied by other black women, never feeling black enough, pretty enough or good enough.
- You’re tired of feeling invisible in white spaces.
- You're frustrated by black spaces that focus on the problem and don't provide practical tools for how to deal with living under the system of racism.
If you identify with any of the above, you’re not alone. The Sacred Sista Sanctuary is the leading empowerment community for black women packed with heart centered, in-depth training and resources on all aspects of decolonising, rebuilding, and nurturing your racial wellness and relationships.
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) and get support with a therapeutic cultural context.
THE SANCTUARY WILL HELP YOU TO:
WHAT MAKES THIS WELLNESS SPACE DIFFERENT?
In this wellness mastermind, I'll help you transform the relationship with yourself and others. Together, we’ll gently explore and unlearn your patterns, build the foundations for connection and ignite your feminine power. Here's what you can experience from the 3 tiers available in the Sanctuary.
The library provides an amazing depth of self directed resources to nourish you in between the live sessions. Here you will find
- Book club support resources.
- Journal prompts.
- Book lists
- Live stream replays
THE BOOK CLUB
The book club in the membership is like no other because we don't just read the text. Together, we read each chapter live and unpack how it applies to our lives. With therapeutic support and tools, you have a safe space to deal with whatever issues come up for you.
We are currently reading 'What Mama Couldn't Tell Us About Love,' where the authors ask black women to consider what lessons about love and intimacy were passed down from our foremothers.
By exploring the emotional legacy of our enslaved ancestors, we understand the power of sharing, identification and how inherited beliefs can both heal and strengthen us.
Our mothers may not have been able to empower us because of their own pain, but we can use our healing experiences to have better relationships and rebuild our communities.
The sessions are not recorded to maintain confidentiality and boundaries are in place to ensure that each sista along with her views are treated with respect. There are also additional journal prompts and resources for each chapter to follow along if you miss the live session.
Classes are weekly, (except the last week of the month). at 8pm London time (3pm ET) - 9:30pm (4:30pm ET) Click the picture to buy the book.

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.’
