Behind each story, there is a part of ourselves that we have yet to discover. Enjoy the journey of self-discovery soul sisters.

Growth is love

In the unfolding of discovering love, how has it arisen in your now?

I had the pleasure of creating this film in collaboration with poet, Mandera Sana.

I hope that it inspires you to pause and deeply reflect on what love truly means to you.

Creating healthy boundaries as a Black woman

As a spiritually grounded Black woman, I have discovered the beauty of 'boundaries with kindness' as it creates openings to deeper moments of inner wellbeing in my life. There's no malice, discontent or fear, it's just an inner knowing and nurturing of the sacredness of my body, mind and soul.

Boundaries with kindness as a Black woman looks like

inner peace
inner bliss
inner expansion
inner joy
inner contentment

I wanted to create a visual embodiment of this inner journey as we lean into the sacredness of our being as Black women, so I invited my fellow soul sister, Vuma, to create art together and this was the magical unfolding of it.

Okuku - a story of wellbeing from the lens of a Black woman

Re-connecting with Black wellness. 

Okuku is symbolic for creating new soil and planting seeds of love and compassion for one’s self.

This story ventures into the path of nurturing the narratives of Black women choosing self-care and wellbeing in a time of global turbulence and chaos.

One Percent 

This piece pays homage to our ancestor, Maya Angelou : in the spaces that create divisions and separatism, we are asked to ponder'what if we changed the way we perceived one another, complained less and loved more, became more conscious of our actions and the impact it leaves on the world? what if?' 

I created this while living in Indonesia and discovering my oneness within the eyes of Indonesian women
