Welcome

The Alchemy of Resistance is a practice and an empowerment guide that focuses on self-care & spiritual healing practices specifically for Black and womyn of colour in Europe.

I have written a chapter in this publication, which will be launched during this online conference. The working language this time around is German. The English version is in the pipeline.
Many thanks to Yari Or for inviting me to be part of this process. #decoloniseyourmind #decolonizeyourrelationships#ancestraltransformation#nonhumanrights
