swahili, from the arabic, عَسَل (ʿasal)
My name is Asali and I'm a Black queer femme community healer and earthworker.
My healing practice is deeply rooted in the truth that self-care is community care. I believe that making space to heal ourselves helps to do the work that heals our communities.
I created this space for myself and those in my community to journey together as we intentionally practice radical co-healing in a world that is sustained by our marginalization.
“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” - Audre Lorde
Moved by the light of ancestor warrior Audre Lorde, I affirm that when we take the time to seek for ourselves means of nourishment and elevation, when we take the time to prioritize caring for our mind, body, and spirit, we practice a radical act of resistance.
