“I was trained as a Be Body Positive Facilitator at their 3-day Summit in Berkeley California, in August 2017. It was an amazing experience that afforded me the opportunity to meet fabulous activists and educators who are doing the work and making a difference. I was so inspired to incorporate what I learned at the training into my Atlanta based business, Holistic Alchemy. I have shared some of the techniques and information in my Sister Circle conversations and in one-on-one body liberation coaching sessions with women.”

“To tell the truth is to become beautiful, to begin to love yourself, value yourself. And that’s political, in its most profound way.” ~ June Jordan
