Decolonized Holistic Mental Health and Wellness 

Soul Werk is the deep dive, commitment to and cultivation of self-awareness; the journey of self actualization, which fosters balance and wholeness, enhancing intentional genuine and meaningful connections. 

We need to be weapons of mass construction, weapons of mass love. It is not enough just to change the system. We need to change ourselves.
