welcome home.
to a journey of remembering. a journey fortified by your presence.
one of reclamation, of deep connection, of healing from the roots.

the story.

you know the story.

the one where beautiful people try desperately to hold onto their identities & sacred practices amidst centuries of genocide, oppression, and racism.  

the story where beautiful people dilute or even forget their traditions as a means of surviving.

you know this story.

the part where these same sacred traditions and rich cultures are appropriated and capitalized upon.

the hardest part of the story perhaps is in recognizing the deep impact of forgetting or abandoning the wisdom of our ancestors.  but every great story has a plot twist.  

in our story, the plot twist is in remembering who we are, in decolonizing our belief systems, and in profoundly healing.

 the plot twist is in changing the narrative together.

Ase’ & so it is.

kindred medicine.

kindred medicine is a movement of healers & people of color, remembering and healing

boldly in community and from the roots.

click the + button to begin the process.  follow the prompts to complete your profile, upload a picture, and enter payment information that will be securely stored for monthly automatic withdrawals. please include specialty areas (e.g. womxn’s issues, trauma informed, lgbtquia+ inclusive, etc.) in description of services.  your post will be live 24-48 hours after submission.

as healers & space holders we are always evolving and trust that your practice will also!  edit your profile any time by logging in edits will be live 24-48 hours after updates are submitted.

we have set a monthly investment amount of $25.  we see this as an investment in the self of the healer, the medicine, and the collective intentions of this movement to reclaim our traditions & decolonize our healing.  we have considered the potential tensions this may pose for healers in “advertising” traditional practices. we understand that this may not be aligned with your practice and respect this as an option.  please know that in the spirit of decolonizing our healing, we are sensitive to the language being used to define this platform and in navigating the delicateness of bridging traditions in a modern world.  

this is an old school value for a new school movement.  since kindred medicine does not employ a vetting process to create a profile, we are asking that all healers practice the values of honesty & integrity in the ways they represent themselves, modalities, and scope of practice.  we are boldly and unapologetically defining this space for healers/people of color and urgently request that that is respected.

the beautiful thing about starting a movement is that we don’t know where it will take us.  we are fully embracing these unknowns. we encourage you to support these intentions by inviting fellow healers to join us and sharing with communities of color.  we look forward to hearing your amazing stories of healing and beyond.

here. additionally, please consider offering community members a consultation to support empowered and informed healing choices.

please get acquainted with kindred medicine’s terms & conditions and privacy policy to ensure responsible use of the directory.  stay close via social media platforms as we grow in community and solidarity.

kindred medicine upholds the value of holistic healing – mind, body, heart, & spirit for the self and on the community level.  one of the ways in which our healing has been disrupted is through the message/conditioning that we have to compete with one another to survive. kindred medicine is taking a stance against the energy of competition and instead sparking liberation by joining together.  please consider utilizing the wonderful resources available for mental health needs including therapy for black girls, latinx therapy, melanin & mental health, and therapy for latinx.  keep us posted on any aligned mental health resources we’re missing out on!

from the homepage use the search bar to locate healers near you.  if you’re not quite sure what you’re looking for and are in more of a browsing mood, use the healing icons on this page to explore the healing categories represented.  listen to your body & check in with your spirit – if you feel a spark, trust yourself and explore it. review the healer profiles that resonate and contact them when you’re ready.  we’ve put together a list of questions below that you might consider asking to explore fit.

no!  accessing the directory is completely free.  stop by as often as you’d like. we are here for you.

we are on a mission to become the gathering place for healers of color across modalities and the communities in which they serve.  we recognize that part of the healing is in trusting our intuition and in making informed healing choices. do your research and consider asking potential healers for a consultation to explore fit.  below is a list of questions that you are encouraged to ask.

can you tell me about your approach to healing?

do you have any areas of specialty?

what’s your experience working with issues/needs similar to mine?

are there any negative side effects to your healing approach?

do you have any trauma informed practices?

would you consider yourself/healing space lgbtqia+ inclusive?
