On this episode, Trina speaks with Naimah Efia, a holistic health practitioner, and healer within the ancient-future traditions of the African diaspora. Within a commitment to self-determined healing for Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC), Naimah activates transformation through politicized, decolonial care. They also teach yoga, offer immersive mindfulness experiences and retreats, and facilitate integrative training on the intersections of yoga, social justice and identity politics. They're a proud Ma-MaGe to toddler twins, as well as a doula, centering perinatal mental health across the spectrum of their reproductive justice work. Naimah also offers their skills & care as a healing justice practitioner, liberation-based educator and community activist. Resources:
