Connect with your Ancestral Wisdom

And Discover Your Belonging.



Belonging is a sense of security and support. 

It's a sense of acceptance, inclusion, and identity.


Your sense of Belonging has been sabotaged throughout history by deliberate ruptures in your Ancestral lineages. 





Maybe you never had the chance to know your history (colonialism - the Black sacred feminine was erased), or...


you were taken from it (enslavement), or...


your history was hidden from you (the erasure of critical race theory), or... 


The systems are set up to make you forget...and it is NOT YOUR FAULT.

Belonging transforms us.

It gives us purpose, resilience and clarity of values.



more confidently,

more carefree,

more victoriously…


Healing the Ancestral ruptures by reconnecting with your ancestral wisdom will support you in activating your belonging.

The good news is:


No matter why the rupture happened, you have a whole ancestral posse at your back waiting to guide and support you.



Remembering our ancestors connects us to the medicine in our roots. 


It helps us understand where we come from. 


This knowledge of our heritage provides a sense of identity and belonging.


You can access and ignite the ancestral wisdom that already lives within you.


Maybe you can feel this in your bones?

It's because it was in their bones, too.

A color image of the continent of Africa in greens, browns and yellows is above a sea with swirling waters and clouds in white. There is a bright gold star emanating from the center of the country. The image is surrounded with a Black border with a gold line in it. Below the circular image is a rectangular swath of gold foil and above it to the left are golden burst lines peeking out from behind.

My teacher, Ancestor Malidoma Som√©, taught that¬†our ancestors need us to do their work and we need them to tend the fires ‚Äď our vision, passion and dreams ‚Äď within us.




And like any other living thing that needs tending, the more you nurture this connection, the more you will benefit. Your container will strengthen, the ancestral messages will come through with more clarity, and you will create an unbreakable bond with your lineage wisdom.


It is a practice that alchemizes.

My Medicine Is To Help You Remember 


Utilizing the wisdom of the Black Goddesses, Divination and Community, I support you in exploring what it means to:

  • Revision¬†your medicine

  • Tend¬†to your indigenous heart, and

  • Live¬†your ancestral wisdom in a colonial world.



I know that our ancestors hold a wealth of wisdom, guidance, and love that can shape our lives in remarkable ways. 


Ancestral wisdom comes from their struggles, triumphs, traditions, and values that have been passed down through generations.


By honoring and connecting with them, we tap into a powerful source of support and protection. We unlock the keys to our own personal growth and spiritual evolution.


Our shared history forms a foundation upon which we build our own lives, creating a sense of continuity and connection with those who came before us.

There is a large white spotted cowrie shell in front to the left, a cone shaped glass behind it filled with seeds. On the right of the statue is a squared glass of water, with a woven African woven basket with a conical top in front of it and an orange carnelian stone to the right.

She has large dark hoop earrings, a nasal septum ring and a shaved head.


‚ÄúThis investment in yourself and your well-being allows you to do and be better at all the things that life demands of you. I mean, definitely you're worth it.‚Ä̬†

This is not just a course…it’s a community and healing and just radical self care and empowerment. And now I just feel like I can take up space. I've done so much more for myself, for my business, just being brave, and being bold and being black and being here, and it's just been absolutely life-changing.
