Essays from 25 Black Feminine Leaders sharing stories of alchemy, activation, and profound transformation.
It is a book that is full of the heart and soul of powerful and talented Black women. A book that is adding a unique flavour to Herstory at this pivotal time in my own personal and collective evolution.
It’s the first book in a series of anthologies centering the voices of 26 black women, published by Flower of Life Press. It highlights and celebrates the richness and diversity of our varied narratives, lived experiences, and our unique, authentic expressions while acknowledging our connection and all we share in common.
We are retelling Herstory, our way.
We are removing the barriers to ancestral healing, bringing new life to our linage
We are creating new narratives for future generations to come
We are Imprinting our wisdom into the matrix at this time of great change
We are bringing home the wisdom of our bodies and our ancient medicine
We are creating new ways of working and collaboration
Our story is your story and your story is our story
Herstory is History redefined
Together we are exploring the human connection that ultimately extends beyond our gender identity, sexual orientation, and the colour of our skin.
We are bringing the powerful voices of Black women to the forefront of a NEW cultural narrative—one that has been missing for EONS.
She – A Call to Surrender
In this beautiful essay which calls to the deep truth within us all, Coco has indeed claimed her ‘heartsong’ – it shimmers through every word, clearing centuries of karma. Here is the voice of a woman; an ‘Obean woman’ who has ‘claimed her inherited magic’ And I for one am deeply grateful for the wisdom she shares; wisdom gathered from the epic journey she has made to bring the Sacred Feminine home.

SHE: Her words, although unfamiliar to my so-called civilised mind, sing to my soul like a familiar soothing nursery rhyme.
I am not a black woman, and yet the resonance of experience with Coco’s words bridges an ancient ‘primitive, savage, and uncivilised’ chasm with an unbreakable bond of love between our human hearts.
Coco says it all; what I feel through the vibration of her words is our mutual devotion to one another, if we can surrender enough to listen to our inner wisdom and get out of our own way, then humanity can begin to heal our collective wounds that separated us.
This chapter is not just reclaiming the roots for black women, it’s reclaiming the roots for the feminine that runs through all of us, whatever our sex or ethnic origin.
