Healing Ancestral Wounds: For Decolonizing Practitioners on August 4th and September 17th @7pm

 

This is a two-part plática facilitated by Thea Monyeé that will guide us in continuing the process of decolonizing our mental health practice. These two interactive, participatory workshops are designed so that we may go deeper into our soul work to rediscover our sacredness, joy, and pleasure-- all of which are decolonial tools.

In part one, we will focus on the colonized/colonizer realities of our ancestry, releasing judgement and moving towards acceptance. This process will naturally and effortlessly increase joy, removing shame which is a major road block in building relationship with self and with others.

In part two, we will learn decolonial tools that we can use in therapy that are based in Love, Justice and Joy. We will learn how to embody these tools so that they manifest not just in our practice but also in our everyday lives with family, friends and community.

RITUAL AND CEREMONY FOR WOMEN

Rites of Passage such as menarche/puberty, marriage, and pregnancy/birth are sacred moments in a women’s life that deserve to be celebrated and honored in a special way. Let me help you bring ritual and ceremony to yours.

I gather the wisdom of my indigenous ancestral knowledge, the teachings of my grandmothers and traditional elders who have passed on these beautiful ceremonies, respectfully with their blessing I share these teachings in a good way.

Let’s create a beautiful rite of passage ritual for you or a loved one. We could work together and co-facilitate or I could plan and facilitate the ritual with your guidance. Contact me to further discuss the details.

Let us help you with...

  • First Moon (girls coming of age)
  • Bridal Blessing (preparation for marriage)
