About the Workshop
As the world begins to open up again, America is “getting back to normal.” But after a year of multiple pandemics (aka “the triple threat”) that heavily and disproportionately impacted BIPOC communities both in rates of COVID transmission and in the socioeconomic fallout, Black women are already shouldering incredible levels of stress and trauma. And the “normal” that America is getting back to is a normal that we live in fear of - Black children being gunned down by police, cops “accidentally” discharging their firearm and murdering a young unarmed Black man. It is disorienting and scary to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, back into the world where we are burdened by the disease of racism and state-sponsored terror daily. Black women carry this world of fear on our shoulders in a way that nobody else does.
How can we survive or try to thrive in a world where we carry this level of
From the educator's personal and professional experience as a Black woman, wellbeing consultant, entrepreneur, speaker, and trauma therapist: there has never been a more critical time for us to examine what stress is, how it presents in our lives and culture, its problematic physical and psychological impacts, how we can cope with crisis-level stress, and how we can prepare ourselves and take care of ourselves so that we can recognize and address the symptoms of stress overload and burnout to prevent premature death. Not only does this course offer a basic healing guide for you to follow as we return to America’s dangerous “normal” - a “normal” composed of toxic hustle culture, racism, and violence, but as a lifestyle. This course will give you the tools you need to carve out your space, protect yourself from burnout from the inside out, and thrive emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
- List two different kinds of stress.
- Describe two specific physical, emotional and spiritual impacts of stress.
- Identify at least two compassionate ways to decrease the current triggers impacted by past unprocessed chronic stress and burnout.
- Create a plan for self-advocacy to decrease your chronic stress resulting from racism or a plan to advocate for the health of Black women as an ally.
