Collaborating with others, I offer gently guided meditation circles that deeply rest the mind, release tension from the body and invite a sense of tender care and kindness to the heart; our meditation circles especially welcome and centre Black People, People of Colour, and historically marginalised and stigmatised groups.
In these circles, we invite moments of stillness and calm:
- Sit/lay down
- Start to listen to our inner wisdom
- Let go of the identities and broken promises that have shaped our lives
- Acknowledge our pain, sorrows and joys
- We can rest, rise, thrive and flourish
- Love and care more for ourselves, each other and our planet
- Move forward with peace and joy as we collaborate to build a more compassionate, sustainable, and inclusive world.
Here’s What I Mean By ‘Broken Promises’
When I say ‘broken promises’, I mean on all levels.
Structural. National. Familial. Romantic. Personal. Communal.
The countries we live in have often made us promises about equality and inclusion and broken them.
Sometimes—often–our families of origin and partners have betrayed their commitments to us.
And it’s not always their fault.
Sometimes their inability to honour their promises was because they, too, are betrayed by our oppressive systems.
And yet we believed.
We held up our end of the bargain.
MORE than our end.
We over-performed and over-gave.
We over-committed and showed up twice as good.
Good people and partners. Good parents. Good women. Good workers.
We honoured our promises – because we had to–often at enormous personal cost.
Sometimes it costs us ourselves and our self-trust.
That’s why my work is about self-love, collaborative care, rest, and hope.
Because I know you’re tired. I know there’s pain. I know your cup needs filling. And I know that something else is possible for you and us.
You crave rest, joy, inner peace, and the life you promise yourself. You are worthy and long to trust yourself again, no matter what.
And that’s why we’re here, together.
To Cherish Our Bodies
Nurture Each Other
So we can all grow,
flourish and rise.
Hi, I’m Ntathu Allen.
I help people, especially Black Women and People of Colour, breathe, rest, heal and cultivate a calmer, kinder, more loving inner life.
So you can show up, trust yourself, love and enjoy life again – without fear, shame, or pain.
My deepest hopes are…
That humanity learns to forgive, to walk the path of peace, freedom, and understanding for all.
That our children and future generations can stand harmoniously with our planet and breathe a sigh of relief.
That we sow seeds of hope, compassion, and steadfast dedication to collective liberation and wellness.
