Our mothers are our first experiences of God. Their wombs are the portals of our greatness — our entrance into this dimension and to our true purpose on the Earth. Give thanks. Here at Black Girl In Om, we want to honor the legacy of our founder Lauren Ash’s grandmother Lillian Lazenberry-Martin and her queen mother Patricia Miller. We give thanks for the powerful legacy that has ultimately led to our divine resource for black women’s wellness and healing — Black Girl In Om.
As a mother, to see and witness loss so frequently and furiously can be a scary and light-sucking thing. Yet, in times like these self-care, meditation, vegan or clean eating, drawn baths with prayer, reading, sultry sounds of jazz and blues have kept me afloat and have given me the space to breathe in a suffocating world.
