UNEARTH YOUR ANCESTRAL GIFTS
UNFURL INTO YOUR LEGACY

9 MONTH COUNCIL14 WISE WOMEN

Starting September 2024 – June 2025

 

A council and mentorship to alchemize your ancestral gifts
and galvanize your deepest work

All that you touch
You Change.
All that you Change
Changes you.
The only lasting truth
is Change.
God
Is Change.
— Octavia E. Butler

We’re in the midst of (r)evolutionary change.

The world as we knew it has changed. We too are changing. Change is hard, messy and challenging. Change is also necessary, beautiful and constant. At this threshold, we have the honor to be midwives to the new earth. 

There’s something we’re each meant to birth, to nurture, to shape, to embody and to share in this lifetime.

 

 

However, the socialization and programming from our overculture keep us from expressing the deepest embodiment of our work.

Instead we stall, we doubt, we worry, we spiral, we distract ourselves.

The systems of harm also keep us in cycles of self-exploitation.

Instead of our work being grounded in right reciprocity we accept crumbs for the deep medicine we offer and find ourselves exhausted and burned out.

 

Yet, what doesn’t change….

Our soul’s work is our contribution to the whole and integral in creating ecosystems and economies of care that center justice, liberation and dignity for all.

Decolonial Leadership is an intimate 9-month council and advanced mentorship for practiced cultural midwives, medicine keepers, pleasure activists, alchemical healer-artists and visionary creators devoted to birthing revolutionary work and worlds.

 

 

Decolonial Leadership invites us into holy remembrance and deepening embodiment
with our soul’s work in the world. As we reclaim our essence and our ancestral gifts we move beyond the colonial imagination unbind from
what I name as “colonial leadership” and
unfurl into leadership that’s embodied,
emergent and considers the whole.

 

 

 

  • This is for you if you desire your work to move beyond a culture that centers premature death, destruction and depletion.
  • This is for you if you want to share your deep medicine as a practice of reverence to your elevated Guides, Ancestors and Spirit.
  • This is for you if you want to cultivate a deep relationship with your intuition and trust the medicine that lives in your bones.
  • This is for you if you’re ready to heal and integrate visibility ruptures and be seen in your work.
  • This is for you if you’re fed up with being malnourished by the great work you do in the world and desire to call in the support that you need for your well-being.

 

 

 

 

 

Beloved,

Decolonial Leadership was birthed out of a deep desire (and need) to support historically unrepresented folks in birthing and nurturing their soul’s work in the world.

So much of the advice about our work and business is deeply exploitative and extractive and is founded on the tenets of the colonial-patriarchy. 

This journey is an opportunity to come into deeper relationship with our work in a way that not only supports us but also considers the whole.

While our work together is about dismantling the ways oppression seeps into our lives and work it’s also about opening ourselves up to receive in all ways.

As we untether from colonial archetypes and internalized power hierarchies we divest from the capitalistic-colonial-patriarchy.

We’re able to orient towards creating a culture that’s relational, interdependent and rooted in community and reciprocity.

As we approach our deepest work in enlivening ways together, we embody new realities.

My role in this journey will be serve as a visionary midwife alongside you and our sage council as you birth your visionary work. I’ll share the hard-won lessons that I’ve learned while nurturing my own work for 16 years. I’ll bring in all my skills as needed whether it’s weaving in one modalities I’ve integrated into my work from Somatic Experiencing, breathwork, Family Constellations, energy healing and Afro-Indigenous traditions or communing with and clarifying your offerings, pricing in a way that supports you and journeying into the depths of your work.

If this speaks to you, welcome to a convergence with Spirit, our Ancestors as you honor your soul’s deepest work.

 

IN DEVOTION TO OUR LIBERATION,

SPREADING THE GOOD WORD

I will personally share about your work/offering in one of my newsletter announcements. It can be timed with a particular offering or generally about what you’re up to in the world.

"Instrumental in planting the seeds..."

I owe a great deal to Thérèse and my Decolonial Leadership Circle community.

Before joining, I knew I needed support, but I was hesitant to join something that I didn’t quite understand: what exactly is my ‘soul’s calling?’ and how do I materialize it in a decolonized way?

It was something I kept wrestling with until I finally trusted my gut and allowed the possibility of an answer to take shape under Thérèse’s guidance. I’m so grateful that I did.

The monthly gatherings, small group accountability calls, retreat, and one-on-one’s with Thérèse provided the perfect container for the early shape of my business, HELD by Jusna, to be nurtured in.

I go back to my notes or reconnect with my cohort when I feel like I’ve lost my way.

DLC was instrumental in planting the seeds for what my life looks like today–I’m so glad I said yes.

Jusna Ninah Perrin, HELD by Jusna

“Deep level of witnessing...”

…Each person got so much time and got so much presence and so much witnessing from everyone else, so that they could really go to the deepest, most authentic, most honest place. And from that place, explore what is it that the work wants to become?

I think how we typically approach business is that our entrepreneurship is that we look out into the world to see: What might be compelling what might be competitive? What will separate you from everyone else so that clients come to you?

In working with Thérèse and the Decolonial Leadership, the approach that I learned was, How do you connect with the work and see what the work wants to become?  How would you allow the work to speak to you so that you can be the vessel off that versus trying to make it something that it might not want to be and that might not even be in alignment with you?

It’s really getting into conversation with what this energy wants to become and how it wants to unfold in the world.

So that was huge….

"Birth a business that is authentic to me..."

There were so many gifts being a part of this beautiful container.  I got a chance to explore my inner desires and those beliefs that were keeping me small.  I had a safe space to be vulnerable and cry to be really seen and heard in this community of women.  Something I haven’t experienced in my adult life.  It was freeing and it was affirming.  I felt that I can really share my gifts to the world being myself, increasing my confidence.  And cannot forget to mention the wonderful relationships I’ve developed with the other women. Decolonial leadership with Thérèse helped me know without a doubt that I can birth a business that is authentic to me which I am doing now!

"Working with Thérèse will forever change your life in the best way possible."

Before I joined the Decolonial Leadership Circle, I was part of a business development group. Although the group was “heart centered” and “focused on values,” after a while it was clear to me that they did not share my values around social justice and anti-racism, so I left. Around that time, I heard from Thérèse that she was starting her DLC program. After we talked, I knew it would be the perfect fit to support my business growth.

My favorite part of DLC was the coaching calls and the Sister Council small group. We met during some of the toughest months of deep COVID, and having a connection with other people who were trying to create businesses that would nourish their own bodies and spirits while also serving the collective was life saving and life-giving. On every call, a common theme would seem to arise, so even if the insights Thérèse shared weren’t explicitly answering my questions, there was always wisdom to support everyone. I also loved the additional leaders she brought in who shared special ceremonies with us. I particularly remember the cacao ceremony. Even though it was held on Zoom, it was so meaningful and magical.

Whenever I’m part of any of Thérèse’s programs, the Sister Council is always one of the best parts. She has a magic touch when it comes to bringing together the right small groups who can deeply listen and support each other. I still meet one of my Sister Council members about twice a month so we can continue to align with our soul’s calling. Our whole group is still loosely connected as well, and we sometimes reach out via text to get help or to celebrate our wins.

Working with Thérèse will forever change your life in the best way possible. With her support, I have been able to clarify my own vision and direction. I have been able to embrace the way I run a business, which involves lots of rest, intuition, and connection to like-minded people, especially my Sister Council friends! I am able to tap into more of the truth of who I am, and then bring that truth out into the world to support my community.

I love her warmth, her joy, and the way she is deeply guided by spirit. By sharing her true self, she has helped me reconnect with my own humanity.  Thérèse is a wise woman and a compassionate guide. I am forever grateful for the way she has guided me on my journey as an LGBTQ+ educator.

Thank you, Thérèse!
