Welcome to the NEW SISTAHGODDESS!!!

Welcome to the NEW SistahGoddess Magazine! I am very excited to announce a NEW LOOK and a NEW OUTLOOK! SistahGoddess Magazine is dedicated to the non-oridinary, transformative and powerful lives of everyday Sistahs. I think it is time to share our talents, share our dreams and vision for restoration of the female spirit. Sistahs are a powerful and necessary force in healing the planet - it is through our own personal journey to health and healing that our families and communities will find their own wellness and renewal.

Take a look around and TELL ME what you think! This month starts off a series of inspirational interviews from influential Sistahs who are leaders in healing the whole self - mind, body and soul. Here are just a few who will debut on the NEW SistahGoddess Radio:

Eshe Riviears, the Herb Lady/ Herb Sistah. She is co-founder of the International Fibroid Free Womb Wellness Conference/Tour with Queen Afua. She is one of the most well-respected, results-oriented professionals in the holistic health industry. Known internationally as The Herb Lady, Riviears’ ever present connection to her southern roots inspires her to walk in the way of her Big Momma, and aunt and uncle who dispensed herbal remedies, tonics and creations as Utica, Mississippi’s town herbalists. Riviears’ Legacy Herbal blends, Aunt Henrietta’s Lung Tonic and Uncle Peter’s Azzafizzity Cough Stop, honor those tall-walkers who, to this day, guide her on her healing journey. Multitalented and exceptionally gifted, Riviears has earned a reputation for excellence and is highly sought after to share her expertise. She speaks with Sistah C on health issues concerning Sistahs and the upcoming conference on living Fibroid Free.

Ruth King, MA, is a respected voice on women and rage and has devoted her life to strategies that transform rage. A July 2007 O Magazine Nugget, King is President of Bridges, Branches & Braids—an organization working with negative emotions in positive ways, and author of the best seller Healing Rage—Women Making Inner Peace Possible and the audio CD Soothing the Inner Flames of Rage--Meditations that Educate the Heart & Transform the Mind. King weaves 20+ years in psychology, leadership development, shamanism, metaphysics, systems theory, meditation, and teachings from wisdom traditions to lecture, coach, and facilitate retreats that transform the emotional body and mind. She speaks with Sistah C on healing rage and finding the wisdom in working positively with this energy.

Assata Nzingha Malongo, M.Ed,Doctor of Arts and Humanities Candidate, midwifery scholar, researcher, healer, and mother. She is the director of SunWombs Sacred Birth Alliance, and StarSeed 7 Human Arts Institute for Children. She is the author of the upcoming book " Healing the Black Womb", a book that focuses on Folk Healing Practices for Black Women, and the producer of "From Whenst We Came, a documentary which chronicles the black woman's birthing experiences from Africa to present.
