Your Practitioners

We’re an integration of Medicine Women, Creatives, and Coaches and we‘ve built a heart-bridge from our ancestors to you!

our roots

The roots of our practice come from our West African/African-American, Cherokee, and South Asian ethnic ancestors and our Tibetan, West African, South Asian, and Peruvian spiritual ancestors.

These practices are time tested (thousands of years) and are still here for a reason. They hold within them the power to heal, transform, connect/re-connect, and shake up our capacity for real love far beyond what we thought possible.

At times, we have both seriously considered living full-time in a Buddhist monastery or in Yogic Ashram (essentially being nuns), BUT, we each felt the deep call to stay in the world to continue that deep spiritual journeying and to serve and support others.

We also know there is a great need to pass down internal process and the practice of healing to younger and future generations. We are motivated by our collective need for community wellness, authentic unity, and for straight-up human evolution.

Over two decades, we have supported hundreds of people

through our careers and practices as wellness practitioners, educators, community workers, artists, designers, musicians, researchers, volunteers, and facilitators. We feel deeply deeply honored and having so many heart bursts from merging and transforming our practices into the form of Integrative Wellness to serve more folks!
