MONEY AND HEALING
We Are Talking and Akili Well
You are invited to join an intimate community striving toward their financial goals in this 3 part series on money and healing.
Money can hold powerful psychological and emotional meaning. Join an intimate community of women as we go beyond traditional principles of money management to understand and value the way we relate to money and identify the obstacles that have long held us back from financial peace. Over the course of three sessions, you will develop tools to help you work with your money emotions and relationships in daily life. Regardless of your financial past, you will leave this workshop feeling united in community and refreshed to continue along your financial journey.
We strive to make this space as inclusive as possible and invite all women of color who identify with the feminine of center to apply.

Hear What Others Have to Say
Money is the one thing that no one will openly discuss but is always at the forefront of our thoughts. For most, money activates some of our most negative life experiences, both past, and present... BUT what if we didn't have to hold on to those experiences in a way that makes us uncomfortable, and fearful to move forward. That's exactly what the Money and Healing group provides. Alexis and Josie lead a fun, engaging, and safe space to re-evaluate our relationship with money, starting from our roots and putting you on the journey to the life you are currently manifesting. If you are looking for a healing space that includes fun activities, lots of laughs, and a DOPE playlist to keep you going - look no further.
I liked that it was an authentically safe space to open up as much, or as little, about any struggles at all that I have surrounding money. I felt seen and heard and not alone! This series stood out to me because of the way it was conducted, structured, and led with compassion, openness, and a willingness to understand and provide help. I have been working on my own to heal my money story, but the power or sharing my story, hearing stories from others, and then being able to have a loving discussion about it transformed my views. I truly appreciate the advice and tactics shared to improve my money story. Since then, I've began to budget, learn more about tracking my spending and building my credit. It's always hard to start from scratch when your money story makes you feel inadequate, but the hostesses definitely provided the support I needed to realize I am worthy of releasing my stories of shame and accepting the abundance that I am worthy of! I am so thankful for this series!
The Money & Healing series was a really great first step towards taking charge of my finances. I've never had much guidance on budgeting and finances and this was an empathetic, non-judgmental environment that made me realize that I've been approaching money with a mess of complicated emotions from my childhood. I now am able to take practical steps, clear-eyed and have already signed up for financial coaching sessions with Alexis that I'm looking forward to.
