    Your Trauma Doesn't Define You

    The Healing Hearts Community was created to change Black and Brown women’s story with trauma. We understand that many women have been pushed to ignore, deny, hide, or just get over their trauma — but that does not lead to healing, it only creates more hurt. We believe our members deserve to have the relationship they want with their trauma and we are here to support that.

    Healing Hearts offers three membership levels. Members will have access to weekly meetings led by Asé staff, member-only discussion boards and online community via Tribe, monthly newsletters, and a finale event focused on healing, restoration, and growth.

    Take Charge of Your Healing

    My Heart is Heavy

    For women who have not had a chance to be open about their trauma story or have not received adequate support in processing their trauma.

    You will attend 12 weekly, virtual, processing sessions geared towards hearing your story and creating a circle of support for you. Each session will last 2-2.5 hours. While the group is not the same as individual therapy, the processing group offers some of the same benefits of therapy such as treatment goals and therapeutic interventions. The goal of the group is to change your relationship with your trauma.

    You will have access to group discussion boards via private online community space. You will receive monthly newsletters with articles, tips, and strategies around trauma and its impact on you. This group will have no more than 10 members to provide safety, comfort, and space for all participants.

    Valued at $150 per session, members of our Spring cohort will pay only $100 per session. Membership is limited to residents of Maryland and DC only.

    My Heart is Mending

    For women who have had the opportunity to process their trauma or are currently in therapy to do so. Folks in this group may feel ready to move their healing to the next level by participating in a peer support group led by trained professionals.

    Members will have access to 12 virtual support group meetings led by Ase’s trauma expert Kalphria Wilson. These groups offer support via conversation and resource sharing. Each session will last 1.5-2 hours. You will have access to community discussions via private online forum. You will receive monthly newsletters with articles, tips, and strategies around trauma and its impact on you

    Group size is limited to 10 members to promote community and safety. Members will pay $50 per session. Folks from anywhere in the US can participate.

    Maintaining Mami

    For women who are looking for a curated safe space with access to educational resources and community, the maintenance membership could be right for you. This plan is optimal for folks who have already received support or are currently receiving support in processing their trauma. Members of the maintenance plan will appreciate access to our online Healing Hearts community and can access materials that will help continue their growth and restoration. Any woman anywhere can access join this membership.

    We Meet You Where You Are

    The Healing Hearts Community offers three ways to engage in your growth with your trauma story.

We added education, resources, and structured meetings making Healing Hearts a decolonized program that will help you change the way you carry your trauma story.
