Support Black Healers

As a woman of color from African ascent, these times are impacting me in strange and mysterious ways! In order to continue showing up in this wild world, I’m humbling accepting donations to support my work. If you feel called, please send any donations to me via venmo – @tayla-shanaye

Thanks for being here.

In Response to COVID-19 and Anti-Racism:

We have entered unprecedented times. With the emergence of COVID-19 and the Movement for Black Lives, almost all of our relationships have changed and we are being pushed to meet this moment in new and creative ways. It is also a collective trauma event that is pushing us to the edges of our capacity as we cycle through trust and panic, rest and rage. There is much work to be done, much healing that must take place as we move through the opening of the veil and into more equitable and just times. We cannot do this work alone. I’m feeling it and perhaps you are too.

In response to this global pandemic and the social restructuring that we are all experiencing and co-creating, I have moved all of my client work online for the foreseeable future. While it is less than ideal to provide therapeutic counsel over distance, I feel confident that even in this format, the work remains potent, essential, and accessible.

In an effort to provide mutual aid mental health services, I have expanded my sliding scale from $0 – $150/hour. If you are able to pay above the base hourly rate of $100/hour, your contribution will enable me to take on additional clients who cannot afford to pay. You may also directly sponsor someone for support. For more information or to set up an appointment, please contact me directly.

Enjoy a big breath. Take a look around. Get InTouch.

You are welcome here.

She works with people to alleviate stress, reduce chronic pain and tension, negotiate and liberate the bodymindspirit from the trappings of trauma, elevate relaxation, deepen a sense of Self, purpose, and spiritual connection, and find a lived experience of well-being. Through embodiment and connection to the Earth through meditation, herbalism, and ritual, she is working toward offering her own flavor of healing. She is a student, a teacher, a friend, a mother, a sister, a daughter, a lover and a child of the Earth striving for deepened connections to place as the starting point for deep healing and transformation. She hopes this work will help to free our society from the trappings of colonialism, dysfunctional patriarchy, capitalism, corporatism, misogyny, white supremacy, and narrow-mindedness. She offers herself to this work in the service of all life.
