We Gonna Heal
“Are you sure, sweetheart, that you want to be well?… Just so’s you’re sure, sweetheart, and ready to be healed, cause wholeness is no trifling matter. A lot of weight when you’re well.”
As Black people in America, we carry generational biologically inherited trauma and freedom in our DNA. Since our founding in 1999 SpiritHouse has prioritized the collective needs of Black people to give and receive deep transformative healing, that is rooted in our customs, rituals, resilience, radical imagination and true historical analysis.
"There are those who believe Black people possess the secret of joy and that it is this that will sustain them through any spiritual or moral or physical devastation."
- Alice Walker
We practice our freedom with our food, art, and music.
We release our sadness and pain.
We love up on each other.
We grow strong.
We make room for joy.
