Welcoming June, Welcoming Abundance

Happy Friday, loves. I hope that you're entering the month of June well.
Last month, I introduced you to my new monthly musing, Written By Herself. This is where I share what's up in my world, my reflections, interesting links, and my upcoming events. Dig it? Forward to a friend and encourage them to sign-up!

May was a particularly wonderful month! I launched my personal website, and just under one week later I spoke on a panel about self-care from the inside out with Teen Vogue Editor-in-Chief Elaine Welteroth, Gabi of GabiFresh, Francheska of HeyFranHey, and Ofunne of Cocoa Swatches. I had to pinch myself to ensure I wasn't dreaming. This photo is one I'll cherish forever:

In May, I also enjoyed kicking off the very first Black Girl In Om mini-retreat with dozens of amazing souls at Workshop Chicago. Self-care is so, necessary ya'll. Follow us on Twitter for some daily inspiration to encourage you in your self-care journey!

And last, but not least, we've launched the Black Girl In Om podcast. Words can't express how proud I feel to have created the first podcast by women of color for women of color! Tune in, and subscribe! 

What's on the horizon this month?

Black Girl In Om Self-Care Sunday is this Sunday, June 5th from 11 p.m. to 1 p.m. This self-care afternoon includes yoga and dialogue and is always cozy and lovely. This series is intended for self-identified women of color. Register today.

Me and my fellow Party Noire co-founders Nick and Rae have launched our website! Visit it and you'll see all that we have on the horizon this month: from our Dance Hall and Juke inspired glow up next Saturday, June 11th, to our Black Joy focused workshop, and Party Noire collaborative pop-up, at Allied Media Conference. Oh and we're hosting #blackgirlmagic fabulous Jamila Woods' album release party onJune 23rd. All the info may be found on our site. And ya'll already know about how I feel about our Instagram

Join me for my FIRST quarterly consultation for a purpose-driven life: my The Soul Sessions series kicks off on Sunday, June 26th and am offering a 10% off rate to those of you on my e-mail list. Use the code WRITTENBYME to score it. Not in Chicago? I offer the experience virtually. Let's chat.   

I'll be launching my next free, guided audio meditation, as part of my Sound Sessions series. Shout out to Calid B. and Peter Esponson who help me create the good vibes that you hear! I am so happy to have received such beautiful feedback to my first sound session, and can't wait to release the first one soon! Follow me on Twitter to tweet me your thoughts on my first audio meditation!

That's all, for now. As always: be well.
