Sacred Woman: A Guide to Healing the Feminine Body, Mind, and Spirit

By Queen Afua

Queen Afua begins by helping us discover our unique “womb-an-ness” and honour the womb as the centre of our consciousness and creativity, giving us a twenty-one-day program for womb purification and spirit rejuvenation. Then Queen Afua summons us to enter the Nine Gateways of Initiation, where she blesses us with the exact tools we need to bring our beings into true harmony with the earth and the cosmos. 

Through meditations, affirmations, and rituals deeply rooted in ancient Egyptian temple teachings, Queen Afua teaches us how to love and rejoice in our bodies. With love, wisdom, knowledge sharing, understanding and passion, Queen Afua guides us to accept our authentic divine selves as Sacred Women–to heal ourselves, the generations of women in our families, communities, and world.



by Nikki May 

Nikki May wrote the first scene of her debut novel Wahala on the train after leaving a “long and very loud” lunch with her Nigerian friends. The upshot is a funny and slightly dark witted story about three women and their wahala, or “trouble”—their boyfriends, professional aspirations, and weaves. 



An Abolitionist’s Handbook: 12 Steps to Changing Yourself and the World 

By Patrisse Cullors (January 25) 

Most people are decent human beings, and when a non-Black person thinks about slavery, they hope they would have been on the side of the abolitionists. Contemporary abolition usually refers to abolishing the legalized slavery of the prison system and sometimes to defunding the police. Many pieces have been written on why many great activists are modern-day abolitionists. Real change must come through action and unlearning what we think we know. The revolution and change are more than a hashtag on social media. Maybe a handbook will help? Patrisse Cullors, one of the original cofounders of the Black Lives Matter movement, teaches how to build an activism practice from a place of compassion and love.
