Love and Healing: This principle is not just a concept, but a powerful force that permeates every facet of how I choose to live, work, and play.
Consensual and Non-Harmful Engagement
Learning how to consent with oneself provides self-trust and non-harm. Learning to engage with oneself non-harmfully allows a person to engage with others in a manner that doesn’t cause harm. The audience will gain practices that invite them to check in with themselves and others consensually and non-harmfully.
The Art Of Choice
Learning to center one’s own choices takes practice. Unlearning shame and guilt associated with taking care of oneself is rooted in pivoting in how one thinks, speaks, and acts towards themselves and others. The audience will learn ways they can choose themselves that will aid them lead and care for others without causing harm.

“It is difficult to find people who are teaching on decolonizing consciousness and social equity who are offering this work from a trauma-informed perspective. Fatima guides people to work with their nervous systems, their bodies, and their hearts as much as with their minds. She holds such a beautiful space where we can do the hard work of looking at systems of inequity and injustice while being reminded of our humanity and our inherent goodness. I have learned how to stay open and grounded in unpacking these mindsets within my own conditioning while also being guided to clear, impactful action within my communities and my work. She reminds me daily that our liberation is connected to our bodies, our hearts and to each other.”
– Jenn Wooten, Waking Yoga
“Fatima has trained my whole organization and most of our clients. Our company works in the world of mental wellness AND we are a diverse company so it is critical that we create safe environments for people with all kinds of bodies and backgrounds. Diversity and inclusion has become a box to check but for us, our business would fail without these skills. If you care about this work more than just checking a box I highly recommend working with her. She is an embodiment a socially just world. Every single moment of the training was an opportunity to humanize ourselves and each other, leaving no room for bias.
I have attended many trainings and lectures that intended to dismantle racism and promote equality. Almost all of them were divisive. This kind of work often leaves the white-bodied people feeling guilty, trying to be “good” or defensive. The black and brown-bodied people’s experience then comes second to all the white-bodied people’s feelings. I can honestly say that everyone in my company felt like the class was for them, for their benefit, because it was. Fatima’s work has changed my life, it changed the culture of my company and I know that her work at large has changed our city. I will keep working with her as long as she will have us.”
– Lillian Moore, Cofounder of Mindlight
“Undoubtedly, one of the most beautiful and affirming energies to bring forth the convergence of exploration, education, connection, and genuine curiosity, to any group/ space, however large or small. Ms. Mann has a talent that cannot be taught or mimicked or modeled. Simply, it is grace manifest in a way that removes fear, diminishes discomfort, and promotes relational capacity building among and for others.
I have had the distinct pleasure to know, witness, learn alongside, and learn from Ms. Mann for roughly 4 years now. She has successfully convened the most diverse, unfamiliar participants in a space into an organic community through an identified shared purpose. She does this so seamlessly because her work is borne of authenticity and informed by not only theoretical concepts, but most effectively, the heart work of human dignity. I have sought out and witnessed her talents in mental health retreat spaces, within the walls of institutions like UT Austin and Texas State University, and even in presentations through the virtual realm that reached national audiences- all of which left those fortunate enough to engage with or learn from her feeling renewed and effervescent. In closing, the inimitable Fatima Mann has a gift that the world would only be better for receiving through her humble delivery and sincere desire to connect the beauty of the human spirit in boundless ways to advance justice.”
