Black Girl In Om promotes holistic wellness and inner beauty for women of color. Founders Lauren and Deun encourage self-care, self-love, and self-empowerment for communities of color. I’ve been listening to their podcast and I literally binged the whole first season.
Deun and Lauren are the medicine we need right now. On Black Girl in Om they learn and share wellness practices with one another, and through this work cultivate richer understandings of what it means to be healthy and beautiful from the inside out.
I was able to meet these two incredible ladies while I was in Chicago and have a radiant conversation with them about creating space for women of color in the wellness world.
