The microaggressions were casual and unintentional but the impact was real. I would rather go without than deal with the damage of it.
I watched myself and others like me slip through the cracks, become hopeless, choose remove themselves from this world.
It was at my lowest point that Jessica Wilson, a radical body liberationist and nutritionist reached out to me.
A Sovereign Embodiment was born.
It was born as an act of resistance
It was born into love
It is a reclamation of our original tools. It is decolonized care structured for those who need it most and often have the least access to it.
Our clients are Black & Brown, Trans, Gender Non- Binary, Neuro Divergent, Sex Workers, Disabled, Activists, Artists, Elders, Survivors, Immigrants, Healers, Single Parents, The Dying and those relearning how to live.
ASE exists to support them, uplift them, validate them and ensure their survival.
Almost two years ago the Collective that was A Sovereign Embodiment was gentrified out of it's space in Oakland. Our practitioners continued their work. I tried to heal.
I have an opportunity now to continue what I started in a more sustainable way. In a real way. But in order to do that I need help.
These funds will help me with rent, supplies, meet legal requirements necessary to build ASE up in a way in which it can not so easily be brought down again.
My goal is to open a new Collective full of Black and Brown Queer Trans healers and heart holders. I'm laying the foundation.
I can't do it alone.
There is so much more to be done.
If you can't contribute monetarily you can still help me out by
*Writing me a review
*Recommend me to your friends/ universities/ conventions
*Blow me up on the social medias
*Check out the new webpage typos and all!!!
But most importantly go forth and live a delicious life, love big, scream loud, become sovereign and tell me all about it!
We continue forward
