About the BMWHC
Who we are
The Black Muslim Women Healing Collective is dedicated to supporting and uplifting Black Muslim Women.
We create online and in-person spaces to support Black Muslim Women, understanding their trauma, developing their skills and accessing resources to heal themselves and their communities.
This work is led with heart-centred therapeutic practices and teachings rooted in a rich Islamic spiritual heritage.
This is done in a compassionate, non-judgemental and non-directive environment that meets the specific needs and experiences of the Black Muslim female identity.
What we do
We hold monthly workshops, healing circles, talks and practical events
Our workshops are spaces which are centred on creating pathways to healing for Black Muslim Women.
Our healing circles are non-judgemental spaces where we can explore any emotion arising from our trauma and or healing process. Because this trauma can be derived from so many different sources, from those from the non-black Muslim community, non-Muslim community, non-black community, and the male community, to name a few.
Who are our spaces for?
The BMWHC is led by Black Muslim Women FOR Black Muslim Women
If you are not a Black Muslim Women, please respect this space and be an ally to our cause by allowing our space to remain intimate and personal to the Black Muslim Woman.
If you know a Black Muslim Woman who could benefit from this space, please do direct them to our webpage and social media for more information.
