The Blacker The Brain is an ongoing interdisciplinary campaign, conversation and cohort created by therapist and mental health decolonizer, Thea Monyee´ . to make mental health inclusive and expansive for Black bodies by teaching practitioners to unlearn harmful ideas, practices, and policies, and empowering potential clients with language, a full understanding of their rights, and a joy centered framework for their healing within in an oppressive society.
The Free Joy Experience is a joint healing venture between EbonyJanice Moore’s Free People Project and Thea Monyee´´s MarleyAyo, focused on spiritual justice and creating programming, curating content, and holding space for community building around racial healing through ancestral accountability and expanding white consciousness and imagination. There are various ways to contribute:
We support and create training opportunities for healing through decolonization, or the unlearning of colonial values.
Decolonization is the active practice of increasing awareness of the harmful impact of colonization on all living and non-living things, and creating strategies to reduce/eradicate the long-term effects of colonial violence by amplifying ancestral, spiritual, eco-equitable and holistic solutions.
Due to COVID19 restrictions, current trainings are offered via Live Virtual Classrooms and/or self-paced pre-recorded curriculum.
