We are too comfortable.

Many of us are living a mediocre life and there is clearly another way.

We fuss at our kids, comprise with the principal, mumble at our partner and wonder why we are irritated at the end of the day.

So why are we still doing this?

It’s a habit. 

It’s a story we tell ourselves.

We are living on autopilot.

It says that we have to sacrifice ourselves and suppress our dreams.

But it doesn't have to be this way.

You don’t have to live that way anymore.

You can live on purpose.

You can have more joy.

You can live free.

You can find the peace and happiness in your relationships - with others, and most importantly with yourself.

You can conquer the stressful moments while not losing yourself in the process.

You can

- and you are allowed -

to prioritize yourself.

This is why we have created

Mindfulness with People of Color

"where we see you, because we are you"

Mindfulness with People of Color is a warm and welcoming online meditation community. Mindfulness with People of Color is for ALL who self-identify as BIPOC (black, indigenous or as a person of color).

Our mission is to change the narrative, educate, and bring awareness to our black and brown communities on the benefits of mindfulness.

Our goal is to bring accessible and practical mindfulness practices to you.

We are ready to help you find peace,

to help you LIVE your life with more intention

(instead of you watching your life happen to you.)

Tap into what mindfulness is and how it can support you in all aspects of your life. Mindfulness is about being aware without judgment. Being mindful helps us choose to pause and notice trauma and resilience, all which is part of our life's journey to healing and thriving. As BIPOC we are conditioned to ignore our feelings... in our every day life we experience things that cause harm to our bodies, souls, and minds - let's change the narrative.

Now's the time...
