It’s undeniable that the wellness world as many of us know it is full of whiteness. The lack of both visibility for black healers and accessibility for black women and men in need of support is part of the wall that we hope to help tear down with the continued amplification of black healers and wellness practitioners.
Wellness isn’t whiteness; it’s for everyone. Which is why it’s necessary to create space for more and varied healers to connect with the people (you) ready to receive healing. Each practitioner’s individual history, perspective, experience and personality informs their work. It creates a vibration that attracts you to them, and lays the groundwork for the transformation you’re ready to begin.
As this revolution continues, so does the healing. We will continue to do that deep work and commit to cultivating pathways for black practitioners, knowing that we can’t heal the collective until we heal ourselves. Here are a few of the voices we’re looking to for inspiration, guidance and education.
EDITOR’S NOTE: We’ll continue to update this list and leave it right here as a resource. Please let us know in the comments who else we should include! If you’re a black healer or wellness practitioners, please say firstname.lastname@example.org!
