S16E1: Just One of Those Days: Dealing with Depression as a Successful Woman
3467
Hey lady, we have a question for you. What do you do when "one of those days" feels like it’s lasting longer than normal? How do you care for yourself when you barely have the energy to get up? We know days like those exist and we want you to know that not only are you not alone – they are totally normal. Dr. Dom and Terri have a tender, honest conversation about what it feels like to thrive as you experience depression. They keep it real about all of the places the mind can go when life feels unbearably heavy and share their personal toolkits of tried-and-true ways to help them become the light out of their respective darkness. As a Black woman, we hope you always know that being real about how you’re feeling is one of the greatest signs of strength. And asking for help is another. If you or a loved one are struggling with suicidal ideation, please check the links below for resources and text 988, the suicide crisis hotline for additional support. Remember, we’re glad you’re here.

S14E10: Learning How to Love Ourselves with Elizabeth Acevedo
3008
Who among us hasn’t heard the common refrain, you just have to love yourself? And, sure, while we may agree in theory, how easy is that to do in a world that tells you to do the exact opposite? According to Elizabeth Acevedo, The New York Times best-selling author of Poet X, Black women suffer the most from chasing the potential of who we are instead of acknowledging that we are enough right now…but it doesn’t have to be that way. Elizabeth joins Terri and Dr. Dom for an inspiring and relatable conversation about how her journey as a renowned poet, author, and now screenwriter led her to the belief that you always have to be in a position to quench your own thirst. She shares gems on how nurturing her connections with her intuition and her ancestors led her to a fulfilling life in full bloom. If you need a little guidance on how to water your own garden, you’ll want to tune in!

Reflect and unlearn to get to the place where you “Say hello to yourself.” In today’s episode, Yah Hughes joins Terri and Dr. Dom to share her journey to herself and how you can find you too. Betting on yourself is not an option, it’s a mandate.

Quote of the Day:
"Your goals, dreams, emotional well-being, life, situations will always be a WANT if you don’t do what you NEED to get to the other side!"

In our current state of the world, this is a conversation that speaks to experiences across professions and generations. While many of us grew up happy to see one Black person on a show or would readily support a project even if the story was not being told by us. However, today’s generation is demanding more. Today we want to see ourselves represented in all facets of life. In this week’s episode, Terri and Dr. Dom are joined by the multi-hyphenate Schele Williams to discuss how she is cultivating the culture she wants to see on and off-Broadway.

This episode is a special day in Cultivating H.E.R. Space. In this episode, Terri’s current therapist joins Terri and Dr. Dom for a conversation about navigating life and finding peace when someone in your family is diagnosed with a psychological disorder. With so many of us knowing someone (maybe ourselves) who has anxiety and/or depression, we don’t often talk about those with severe mental illness. This is an episode you didn't know you had been waiting for. Lady, get ready to take notes as Eve Marie, drops some healing gems and “Words of Wisdom.”

Quote of the Day:
“ As humans, we tend to hold onto people and things we have a deep love for. Holding on, in general, is about us trying to have control. We hold on mostly because we don’t want to feel the pain and sadness that come along with letting go, so we do whatever we can to avoid those feelings, but pain and sadness are a part of our human experience.”

Lady, let this song lyric marinate, do some research on the meaning, and then etch this song in your spirit: “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.” Not sure what it means to shine your light? In today’s episode, Dr. Dom and Terri help us understand how we may be dimming our light through real-life examples. Now is the time for us to stop playing small and start “Shining, Shining, Yeah!”

*For insight into the tips listed, be sure to subscribe to the aftershow*

"Your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same."
- Marianne Williamson

3167
WARNING: Explicit Content. Not suitable for sensitive ears or the faint of heart. We are talking about sex, vaginas, penises, etc. and use other colorful descriptors for our body parts. Now that we have warned you, lady, today Dr. Dom and Terri dive into Jazmine Sullivan’s new album...Heaux Tales. If you have not listened yet we suggest checking it out and then coming back to the episode. Or...you can play it as you listen to this episode. This entertaining and informative exploration of the album is sure to  bring up experiences familiar for you or someone you know. Thanks to Jazmine Sullivan for telling the world about our complex relationship with our bodies and sex.
Quote of the Day:
"The thing is, dudes can’t handle if a woman takes the same liberties as them especially with regards to sex. Like our society teaches men to be so wrapped up in themselves and their own conquests that they forget we’re sexual beings as well. Plus, their egos are often way too fragile to ever handle a woman who owns and has any real agency over her body. And we’re to blame as well…’cause we’re out here telling them the p*$$y is theirs, when in actuality, it’s ours."

Well, today Dr. Thema returns for a much-needed conversation about mother-daughter relationships. Our mothers are individual adult beings and sometimes no matter the status of our relationship, it may be difficult to acknowledge mom’s identity outside of motherhood. In this powerful interview, Dr. Thema provides us with insight on navigating a healthy mother-daughter dynamic and how to have a difficult conversation. Get ready for the beautiful gems and ah-ha moments.
Quote of the Day:
"As your clarity grows, you recognize sometimes it's not about releasing but instead acknowledging what's already gone or what was never there"
-Dr. Thema

How to have a healing conversation with mom:

Identify what you want

Role Play and Practice

Seek consent to engage in the conversation

Naming the hurtful actions/events

Share how they made you feel

Ask for what you want

Be open to feedback

S8E11 : Coming to Grips with Being Enough with Dr. Jannis Moody
3364
Lady, do you feel like you are enough? Do you believe you are worthy? Who are you when you are not producing or doing something?  The socialization of being in competition with one another and the negative social comparison is  stealing our joy. While we are “stomping down the street like majorettes in the parade with no boots on and pulling the whole community behind us,” do not let anyone say you are not worthy. YOU. ARE. ENOUGH. In today’s episode, Dr. Dom and Terri engage Dr. Jannis Moody in a riveting conversation around acknowledging  our #BlackGirlMagic and cultivating affirming self-definition.

S8E10: Ambiguous Grief: Grieving When You Can't Get Closure
2500
Pandemic, death, divorce, natural disaster, addiction...grief and loss is something we have all experienced. How we define and experience the loss varies. In today’s episode, Terri and Dr. Dom help us understand ambiguous grief. Lady, if you have experienced the physical loss of someone or something while still experiencing them psychologically or the inverse then this episode may give you the language you need to define your experience. Hopefully, this complex conversation between Dr. Dom and Terri will help cultivate the healing you need.
Quote of the Day:
"I wanted a perfect ending. Now that I've learned the hard way, some poems don't rhyme and stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, or end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it without knowing what's going to happen next."
-Gilda Radner
Tips for Navigating Ambiguous Loss:

Utilize “both, and” thinking (ie., opposite of black/white, either/or)

Set aside time to not think about the loss

Reassign family roles

3365
S.A.D. The Standard American Diet. Lady, what do you eat? Is it actually food? Well, if we are what we eat then how does your diet correlate with your health?

S8E5: Understanding the Power of Black Economics with Britni Wilcher
3026
What is microeconomics and what is its role in our daily lives? It is not always directly about money. If you think about the access you have and cost of your healthcare, food, employment, and housing, then you are familiar with microeconomics. From family leave policy to double work day to maternal health to childcare to wealth gap we learn how the pandemic is really having a devastating economic effect on the Black community. This conversation is a start in connecting the dots and learning the language of microeconomics. Join Terri and Dr. Dom as they lean into curiosity to learn about this topic from microeconomist, Britni Wilcher.
Quote of the Day:
" A race that is solely dependent upon another for economic existence sooner or later dies. As we have in the past been living upon the mercies shown by others, and by the chances obtainable, and have suffered there from, so we will in the future suffer if an effort is not made now to adjust our own affairs."
-Marcus Garvey
Tips for Changing Our Economic Outlook:

Advocacy in healthcare

Retooling ourselves for jobs in the future

Hold policy makers accountable for what we need

S8E2: All My Skinfolk Ain’t Kinfolk
3141
Can Black people be racist? NO! However, Black people can be agents of white supremacy and anti-Black. Due to how we have been socialized chances are there are times when we may experience internalized racism. Throughout our socialization there have been systems in place to move us closer to whiteness and as a result, shunning people who do not align with white supremacist heterosexist classist patriarchal ideologies. While some of us have found ways to break free from some of these ideologies, others have doubled down in fully aligning with whiteness. Today, Dr. Dom and Terri discuss those who may look like us but are not for us.
Quote of the Day:
"Souls that inhabit white bodies can be allies and accomplices in the fight against oppression, in the same way that black folks can be agents and accomplices in promoting, promulgating and protecting white supremacy. As my grandmother once said, conjuring Zora Neale Hurston, “All your skin folk ain’t your kinfolk.” Meaning that you can inhabit a black body and be an agent of white supremacy."
- Professor Lawrence Ware
Questions that need answers:

What do we do about skinfolk that ain’t our kinfolk?

How do the real Black people unite?

What does it mean to be Black?

How do we hold Black celebrities and officials accountable?

S7E4: Manifesting Your Ideal Life and Transmuting Energy with Jasmine Green
3247
Lady, are you in control of your life? In today’s episode, Jasmine Green joins Terri and Dr. Dom to share with us how we may not be in alignment with our purpose and steps we can take to get into alignment. No matter how your journey started, as we hear from Jasmine, does not have to be the route you continue to take. The internal experience of the entrepreneur we see is a powerfully vulnerable story and Jasmine shares with us how to transmute our energy. Through visualizations and personal examples we learn concrete steps to manifest the life we deserve.


Quote of the Day:
"You can only receive what you're actually ready for AND... You will only allow yourself to have what you believe you deserve."
- Jasmine P. Green




Takeaways:
Three phases of Manifestation
True manifestation is when you master being it vs wanting it
1. I want it because I recognize what I don’t have
2. Close your eyes and visualize where you want to be ”this is mine”
3. Whatever you believe you deserve you can have- you have everything you need to get/receive it.

3133
Lady, when was the last time you took a long hard look in the mirror to examine the negativity you may bring to your relationships? We know that doing so requires hard work and often a level of vulnerability that some of us will readily avoid.

S5E5: Processing the Loss of Kobe Bryant and Grieving Those with Complicated Legacies
1994
Lady, today we are diving into an important conversation about the complicated feelings of grief. While most of the conversation centers around hearing about the news about Kobe Bryant’s death, his daughter Gianna and the seven other people on the helicopter, Dom and Terri also have a larger conversation about the other thoughts and feelings that come up when someone dies. How do you respond or how are you supposed to feel when someone who assaulted you dies? How is the family supposed to feel? How are those who are aware of the situation supposed to feel? What will it do to their legacy? Do you forgive them? Do you protect them in their death? Listen in as Terri and Dom help us think through how to process our complex feelings of grief.    Quote of the Day: “It’s uncomfortable to raise the worst thing someone has ever done when that someone dies, and when they are beloved. And I suppose it matters that I write this as someone who thinks that very, very few of us are all good or all bad; few of us are saintly, even fewer irredeemable.  We can admire aspects of a person’s talent without erasing the ways in which they also did irreparable damage.  We can be horrified and angry by what someone did without writing them off as worthless, without seeing them go away — to jail, to the grave — and saying “good riddance.”  We can — we must — assess the ways in which the rich and famous are able to exploit our admiration of their talents to pound into the ground anyone who might threaten their fame and reputation, how they so often bypass accountability and we just let them because, well, they’re so talented, or so attractive, or their politics line up with ours, or they handle a ball so well.” - Jill Filipovic   Takeaways: Smudging Kits On Death and Dying book feel all the feelings...they are all valid be kind to yourself...no judgments step away from social media set boundaries with those around you to get what you need utilize resources like therapy Relevant episodes  S3E10: A Fresh Perspective on Death You Need to Hear Resources: Melanin and Mental Health Therapy for Black Girls  Psychology Today Therapy for QPOC   Where to find us: Twitter: @HERspacepodcast Instagram: @herspacepodcast Facebook: @herspacepodcast Website: herspacepodcast.com Email: herspacepodcast@gmail.com H.E.R Space Sanctuary: https://www.facebook.com/groups/herspacesanctuary/

Our relationship with money has an impact on our quality of life. Having a million dollars in the bank does not automatically make us happy nor does being “poor” equal unhappiness.

Lady, what were you taught about sexuality and sensuality? Are you ready to relearn what you thought you knew? This week Terri and Dom are joined by dynamic sister duo Breezy and Bobbi (the founders of Free the Cheeks) and they take us to Twerk Church. This discussion dives into what’s really up with what women are taught about sex and sensuality. A lot of us were taught about respectability politics and socialized into participating in the patriarchy based on the traumas of our ancestors. Today the ladies name the ways that we can subvert the patriarchy. We will hold space and celebrate our wombs. Breezy and Bobbi share with us how they teach women about discovering the freedoms of their body and where they learned to respect and appreciate feminine bodies. Feel the joy. Feel the community. Get back to yourself. Regain your power. Create that vibration...free your cheeks!   Quote of the Day: "If any female feels she needs anything beyond herself to legitimate and validate her existence, she is already giving away her power to be self-defining, her agency" -bell hooks   Takeaways: From Niggas to Gods The Heart of Trauma   Freethecheeks.com @wehealdifferent   Resources: Melanin and Mental Health Therapy for Black Girls  Psychology Today   Where to find us: Twitter: @HERspacepodcast Instagram: @herspacepodcast Facebook: @herspacepodcast Website: herspacepodcast.com Email: herspacepodcast@gmail.com H.E.R Space Sanctuary: https://www.facebook.com/groups/herspacesanctuary/

“Surviving is not the same thing as living.” Lady, how many times have people commented on how strong you are? How many times have you felt like you were falling apart on the inside but you refused to let others see it so you would not be perceived as weak? Take a moment and think about where you learned that pattern. Chances are you are living out a narrative that is not your own. You may be operating in a space conditioned to protect your wounds...shield you from your trauma. Trauma that was caused by someone behaving in reaction to their own wounds.  In today’s episode, Terri and Dom are joined by Dr. Thema Bryant-Davis, a licensed psychologist, ordained minister, and sacred artist. She encourages us to think about our pain in ways that many of us have never considered but will definitely bring us closer to healing.

S3E7: What "They" Didn't Teach You About White Supremacy and Feminism with Rachel Cargle
2412

Rachel’s work focuses on unpacking White feminism, confronting White supremacy and educating people on how Black women are frequently shut out of feminist spaces. The ladies discuss White supremacy by defining it; how it pervades multiple aspects of our lives; and its relationship with White feminism. Lady, as always, we hope after this episode you know you are not alone. Be sure to check out Rachel’s website for resources on navigating this racist society we live in.    Quote of the Day: "I don’t want your love and light if it doesn’t come with solidarity and action." - Rachel Cargle   Takeaways: For women of color...YOU. ARE. ENOUGH.  Notes for White allies and accomplices  "What are you without racism? Are you still good? Are you still strong?” -Toni Morrison It is never the job of the oppressed to educate the oppressors If love were the answer…  Black people love the hardest so we would’ve loved our way out of a lot of things by now.  We would never walk into an orphanage or homeless shelter and say “you should’ve loved your way into new parents or a new home."

S3E5: How To Become More Assertive (And Why It's Important)
2196
Assertiveness. When do you use your voice? How do you use your voice? What does it look like when you assert yourself? Where did you learn to use your voice? The answers to each of those questions gives you insight into how you express assertiveness. If you have listened to previous episodes on boundary setting and confidence then this week’s topic will add to your arsenal of being a woman living in authenticity. Terri and Dom will explore examples of assertiveness and also distinguish from assertiveness, aggressiveness, passiveness, and passive-aggressiveness. Asserting yourself may require risk but it will benefit you and everyone around you in the end. Be sure to scroll down to learn how to navigate situations that require assertiveness.  Quote of the Day: "I think of the next girl who is going to come along who looks like me, and I hope, 'Maybe, just maybe, my voice will help her.'" -Serena Williams Helpful resources mentioned: Tips to improve assertiveness identify the behavior; the impact; your feelings and what you want changed use "I" statements speak loudly and clearly avoiding pauses and "ums" own what you need aim for positivity and collaboration https://www.harpersbazaar.com/culture/features/a28209579/serena-williams-us-open-2018-essay/  From Psychology Today: "Assertiveness is a social skill that relies heavily on effective communication, while simultaneously respecting the thoughts and wishes of others. People who are assertive clearly and respectfully communicate their wants, needs, positions, and boundaries to others. There’s no question of where they stand, no matter what the topic. From a cognitive standpoint, assertive people experience fewer anxious thoughts, even when under stress. From a behavioral standpoint, assertive people are firm without being rude. They react to positive and negative emotions without becoming aggressive or resorting to passivity. Individuals who are high in assertiveness don't shy away from defending their points of view or goals, or from trying to influence others to see their side. They are also open to both compliments and constructive criticism. Assertiveness is often associated with higher self-esteem and confidence. People can improve their assertiveness through practical exercises and experience."   https://www.psychologicalscience.org/news/releases/black-women-leaders-approved-for-assertiveness-in-the-workplace.html

What’s your relationship with sleep? In this week’s episode, Terri and Dom explore what their various sleep habits are and whether they have good sleep hygiene. Dom walks us through some of the causes of sleep issues- the good and the bad.  Then Terri and Dom provide tips on how to adjust our sleep routines which will, in turn, improve our overall physical and mental health.     Quote of the Day: “The only time I have problems is when I sleep.” -Tupac   Takeaways: The National Sleep Foundation   Tips to improve sleep: Create a space that supports sleep Only use bed for sleep and sex Have a good mattress and pillows Establish bedtime routine Meditation/prayer Deep breaths Taking a bath Reading  Gratitude journal No caffeine or alcohol Turn off bright overhead fluorescent lights Turn off the tv Put your phone away   Resources: Melanin and Mental Health Therapy for Black Girls  Psychology Today   Where to find us: Twitter: @HERspacepodcast Instagram: @herspacepodcast Facebook: @herspacepodcast Website: herspacepodcast.com Email: herspacepodcast@gmail.com H.E.R Space Sanctuary: https://www.facebook.com/groups/herspacesanctuary/

2989
2019, where have you gone? We are halfway through the year which means we're at the end of season two. This season brought us guest co-hosts who are experts in sex, sexuality, sexual orientation and queer identity. It also showed us to trust the process as the order of the episodes, while most were not intentional, all built upon one another. In this week’s episode Terri and Dom recap all of the previous episodes of this season, share some of the behind the scenes conversations and how Dom and Terri may be personally influenced by the topics. Lady, thank you so much for rocking with us and be sure to join us in the H.E.R Space Sanctuary on Facebook.  Resources: Melanin and Mental Health Therapy for Black Girls  Psychology Today   Where to find us: Twitter: @HERspacepodcast Instagram: @herspacepodcast Facebook: @herspacepodcast Website: herspacepodcast.com Email: herspacepodcast@gmail.com H.E.R Space Sanctuary: https://www.facebook.com/groups/herspacesanctuary/

S2E12: Oh You Bougie, Huh?
2396
In this week’s episode, Terri and Dom talk about an often polarizing conversation...socioeconomic status and class. Being middle class and/or college-educated is often equated with being bougie. Well, what does bougie even mean? Is it wearing expensive shoes? Staying at four-star hotels? Going to acupuncture? Terri and Dom share their experiences with when and why people call someone bougie. Terri provides us with multiple examples of how people in our lives may call us bougie from a negative space and asks Dom to help us understand that person’s perspective and how to engage with them. Be sure to listen to the end because this is not the usual conversation on being bad and bougie. Remember to sound off in the H.E.R Space Sanctuary and share with us what bougie means to you.   Quote of the Day: Successful women still have their feet on their ground, they just have better shoes." -Oprah   Resources: Pew Research Center income calculator 10 Signs You Might Be Bougie Melanin and Mental Health Therapy for Black Girls Psychology Today   Where to find us: Twitter: @HERspacepodcast Instagram: @herspacepodcast Facebook: @herspacepodcast Website: herspacepodcast.com Email: herspacepodcast@gmail.com H.E.R Space Sanctuary: https://www.facebook.com/groups/herspacesanctuary/

S2E11: I Am Not My Hair... Or Am I?
2463
In today’s episode, Dom and Terri discuss hair. Now, this is not just a discussion on “Good vs. Bad Hair”, though the ladies briefly touch on it. This is a conversation that begins with a quick history lesson on the Tignon Laws of New Orleans and then moves into modern ways in which our hair is policed, judged, politicized, and criticized. The words we use to describe someone’s hair or the assumptions we make about one another based on how we choose to wear our hair can be hurtful and offensive. Terri and Dom share with us their hair journeys and how they have been impacted by the words of others.  Terri’s journey is one you particularly want to pay attention to as many of us can relate to her life-changing story. By the way, what is your hair journey? What are your favorite products? Who’s your stylist? Share it in the H.E.R Space Sanctuary.   Quote of the Day: "I am not my hair."-  India.Arie   "In case you somehow don't already know: It's never okay to reach out your hand and touch a Black woman's hair without permission — I mean, how was that ever even a thing?" - refinery29.com   Hair Documentaries: https://backtonaturaldoc.com/ https://shadowandact.com/2017/03/02/kickstart-this-natural-hair-the-movie-aims-to-pick-up-where-chris-rock-ended-with-good-hair/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvw_PUbt1Fc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WG3ej4R6TKc   Terri's 3 Episode Hair Transplant Journey: http://bit.ly/terrihairtransplantjourney   Resources mentioned in today’s episode: https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-merseyside-31438273 https://bglh-marketplace.com/2014/07/shocking-history-why-women-of-color-in-the-1800s-were-banned-from-wearing-their-hair-in-public/ https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/j5abvx/black-womens-hair-illegal-tignon-laws-new-orleans-louisiana https://scholars.org/brief/whats-hair-got-do-it-black-womens-bodies-and-traditional-look-success-american-politics https://www.refinery29.com/en-us/black-women-hairstyles-at-work https://www.naaf.org/alopecia-areata http://skinofcolorsociety.org/dermatology-education/traction-alopecia/ https://blavity.com/california-s-crown-act-officially-bans-race-based-hair-discrimination-in-schools-and-workplaces   Resources: Melanin and Mental Health Therapy for Black Girls Psychology Today   Where to find us: Twitter: @HERspacepodcast Instagram:

S2E10: Songs in the Key of Life
2380
In honor of Black Music Month, Terri and Dom open up the discussion of music. Who are your favorite artists? What are your favorite songs? What did music mean in your household growing up? Dom and Terri answer all of those questions and share some of their memories and emotions that remind us of the power of music. Make sure you queue up your favorite music platform and look up the songs and artists mentioned so that you can sing along. Then play along as Terri and Dom toss out various song lyrics from the 80s 90s and 2000s for you to guess. Now, while Dom spares us all by not singing, if you listen at the right moment you might hear a bit of Terri’s vocal game. What songs fill your spirit? Make you want to dance? Do a praise dance? Be sure to join Dom and Terri in H.E.R Space Sanctuary and share with the community the music that has resonated the most with you during pivotal important moments in your life.

S2E9: So What's Therapy Like Anyway?
2471
 

Have you been considering seeing a mental health professional? Well, then today’s episode is just for you. Dom acknowledges that as a mental health professional she is biased so she turns to Terri to share her experience with therapy. Through Terri’s sharing of her varied experiences with therapy Dom asks her questions to help listeners determine things to look for; questions to ask; and how to advocate for you may need. The ladies also provide us with information on ways to get access to therapy outside of the traditional face to face therapy. Never been to therapy and are curious about what happens?  Dom walks us through what happens in the first session and explains some of the things that we can address with a therapist. Know that it requires working through the ugly to get to the beauty, but remember...trust the process.

“Girl, if I knew then what I know now.” How many times have you heard this or said this? In today’s episode, Terri and Dom address what they would tell their younger selves in regards to relationships, sexuality, career, finances, self-esteem, and womanhood. “Trust your gut” “Monetize your passion” “Your network determines your net worth” “MASTURBATE!” “Embrace who you are”  “It’s okay for us to be multidimensional beings” “You’re worthy” ...there are so many quotable moments in this episode so be sure to write them down and share them on social media.    Quote of the Day: "Your deep Mahogany skin may not resemble that of the others in your family, but it’s just as gorgeous and you’re just as worthy….One day you’ll appreciate how much your brown skin shines in the moonlight, glistens in the sun and ages ever so slowly." -Gabrielle Union   Resources: Melanin and Mental Health Therapy for Black Girls Psychology Today   Where to find us: Twitter: @HERspacepodcast Instagram: @herspacepodcast Facebook: @herspacepodcast Website: herspacepodcast.com Email: herspacepodcast@gmail.com Join the H.E.R Space Sanctuary!

S2E6: Addressing the Problematic: What You Don't Know Can Hurt Others with Dr. Ja'Nina Garrett-Walker
2166
QUOTE OF THE DAY: “When we face pain in relationships our first response is often to sever bonds rather than to maintain commitment.” “For me, forgiveness and compassion are always linked: how do we hold people accountable for wrongdoing and yet at the same time remain in touch with their humanity enough to believe in their capacity to be transformed?” - bell hooks   In Season 2 Episode 5 Dom and Terri had a chance to interview a special guest, Dr. Ja'Nina Garrett-Walker and engage in conversation about being black and queer and how we can build a bridge between Black heterosexual women and Black queer women. The interview went well until the last 13 minutes. Terri and Dom were made aware of a few statements that were deemed problematic. In today’s episode, Dom and Terri invited Ja'Nina back on the show to model a healthy dialogue that will hopefully empower you to have your own healing conversations despite how uncomfortable or passionate they might be. Stay tuned to learn tips on what to do when you or someone you know fucks up...because it happens to the best of us.   TIPS FOR WHEN YOU MAKE A MISTAKE: Notice it Slow down Don't make a big deal about it Acknowledge it Take responsibility Understand intent vs impact Listen with a different lens Reflection and introspection Humility Put ego aside Apologize   Resources: Gender: Ideas, Interactions, Institutions Melanin and Mental Health Therapy for Black Girls Psychology Today   Where to find us: Twitter: @HERspacepodcast Instagram: @herspacepodcast Facebook: @herspacepodcast   Website: herspacepodcast.com Email: herspacepodcast@gmail.com

S2E5: What You Need to Know About Being Black and Queer and Why it Matters with Dr. Ja'Nina Garrett-Walker
3472
In today’s episode, Terri and Dom are joined by Dr. Ja’Nina Garrett-Walker from the University of San Francisco. They engage in a conversation about how as a Black community we can all be better accomplices for the Black queer community. Dr. Garrett-Walker gives us some information on what it means to “deconstruct the binary” and the damage it does to the entire community when we focus on the binary. She also gives us lots of terminology that we all need to learn in understanding our queer community. Clutch your invisible pearls because she will also check us on ways in which we can do better in ridding ourselves of the homophobia, patriarchy, and anti-queerness we often engage in.  Be sure to take out your pen, paper or something to take notes with so that you can remember the terms. If you’ve had a question about the role of religion; how to be a better ally for the queer person in your life; or just wanting to understand, this is the episode for you. After the more serious questions, the ladies engage in a round of Oh You Clatchet?  And of course, at the end, Terri and Dom share their debriefing. Lady, knowing that so many of our queer brothers and sisters are more at risk for suicide, violence, and homelessness, it is up to us to be good accomplices in advocacy because if one of isn’t free then none of us are free.   Quote of the Day: “One of the ways that you can work for freedom is to change your mind and to move away from the space of binaries, of simplistic either/ors, and to be able to look at the picture that offers us complexity.” - Bell Hooks   Takeaways: Check Your Privilege Campaign Zami by Audre Lorde Human Rights Campaign GLAAD GLSEN Connect with Ja'Nina on Twitter: @j_garrettwalker   Resources: Melanin and Mental Health Therapy for Black Girls Psychology Today   Where to find us: Twitter: @HERspacepodcast Instagram: @herspacepodcast Facebook: @herspacepodcast Website: herspacepodcast.com Email: herspacepodcast@gmail.com

We all know what it feels like when someone violates our boundaries but how do we know when we are the boundary violator? Have you ever... offered unsolicited advice? Gossiped? Said what you would do if you were in someone’s situation? Asked personal questions? Interrupted someone in the middle of a conversation? Touched someone’s hair? Touched someone on the shoulder?

S1E12: Imposter Syndrome: How to Deal When You Feel You Don't Belong
1792
Ever wonder, “How did I get here? I’m not as good as everyone else here. What’s going to happen to me when they find out I’m not as smart as them?” If you answered, “yes” then chances are you have experienced Impostor Phenomenon or Imposter Syndrome. This experience was initially coined to describe the experiences of White women who believed their achievements were a result of happenstance; lived in fear of being taken as a fraud; and setting sometimes unrealistic high standards of achievement. This syndrome may be more exacerbated in people of color, particularly women, who often receive societal messages of not belonging or not good enough.  (Cokely, K., et. al., 2013).   In this week’s episode, join Dom and Terri as they discuss Imposter Syndrome/Impostor Phenomenon, its effects on our well-being and ways to combat it. Terri begins with a story and unintentionally ends up “on the couch” with Dr. Dom who challenges Terri to re-examine how she describes herself. Keep listening and you’ll get tips (through Dom and Terri’s own experiences) on how to check yourself and remind yourself that you are exactly where you are supposed to be. Quote of the Day: “At the end of the day, remember this: You are here for a reason. In this job, your business, your life, you are worthy. You are better than you think you are. You are smarter than you think you are. You know more than you give yourself credit for. Remember that. Remind yourself as often as you need to.” - Megan Dalla-Camina   Takeaways: Ways to Conquer Imposter Syndrome/Impostor Phenomenon: Be realistic about your strengths and weaknesses Alter your narrative/Reframe your thinking Celebrate your accomplishments Recognize these feelings are normal Access your support system Resources: Clance, P.R.

S1E11: How to Create a Dream Team For Your Life and Business
1997
Terri and Dom switch things up a bit in this episode. Dom starts us off with a quick story about how she came to realize she has a team. If we want to live our best life then having a team will get you there. Who do you need on your team? How can you create a team with limited finances? Terri and Dom share with us some of the people they have on their teams and how they navigated finding coaches when they did not have the money. They also discuss their “co-parenting relationship” for H.E.R Space and some of the qualities of the teamwork that makes the dream work. Dom and Terri also shout out (Heyyy girl, Hey!) some of their built-in team members and how meaningful those relationships are. As we’re all evolving in this journey called life, outline your health goals (mental, physical, spiritual, financial and social) and create a team that can support you in each of those areas. Quote of the Day: "Look for people who will pull you forward, put you on your tippy-toes, and will inspire you to reach higher. And once you find them, keep them close to you.

S1E10: Thriving With Depression
2077
Life is good...like REALLY good. In fact, it’s LIT. You’re “blessed and highly favored.” To the casual observer, everything on the outside appears to be wonderful. But on the inside...you feel empty. Lady, is this you? If so, you may be experiencing depression. What we know for sure is that ALL of us will experience symptoms of depression related to many normal life events like a relationship breakup, grief over a loss, or other stressors.

S1E9: How to Set Boundaries Effectively- No Is a Complete Sentence
2300
No! In case you were wondering, no is a complete sentence. Use it without hesitation. Nike! (Just do it!) Know that using it is an act of self-care. Can you think of a time when you’ve had to say no or struggled to say no? Who have you had to say no to? How do you feel when you have to say? These situations are boundary testers and using “No” is a way for us to outline our rules of interaction. Terri and Dom offer us ways to say "No" within real-life situations, including instances in which they were successful, someone was clear with them on a boundary, and times when they struggled with saying "No." If you want to stand up for yourself in those uncomfortable moments, practice in the mirror, in the shower, in the car and remember... “No." It’s a complete sentence. I said what I said and it does not require justification or explanation.   Quote of the Day: "Daring to set boundaries is about having the courage to love ourselves even when we risk disappointing others." – Brené Brown    Resources: 20 Ways to Say NO- http://lifegetsorganized.com/2016/04/18/20-ways-to-say-no/   How to Say No And Why You Should Say It More- http://mochagirlspitstop.com/how-to-say-no/   49 Ways To Say No To Anyone (When You Don’t Want To Be A Jerk)- https://www.careerfaqs.com.au/news/news-and-views/how-to-say-no-to-anyone   Therapy for Black Girls   Psychology Today   Where to find us: Twitter: @HERspacepodcast Instagram: @herspacepodcast Facebook: @herspacepodcast Website: herspacepodcast.com Email: herspacepodcast@gmail.com

S1E8: How to Find Your Own Self-Care Routine
2009
It’s the day after Valentine’s Day. How did you spend the day? Were you focused on others or did you take time to care for yourself? Or was it just another day for you? Hopefully, you did something that made you feel good. In this week’s episode, Dom and Terri dive into the importance of self-care...doing the things (whatever they are) that make you feel good. While self-care is a phrase that seems to be tossed around a lot lately, do we know what it really means? How can we engage in it when we have been socialized to believe that doing so is selfish? Per usual, the ladies provide us with real-life examples from their lives and give us practical ways we can apply it to our own. Self-care is not going to look the same for everyone and shout out to all the ladies finding creative ways to pour into themselves! Remember...equate self-care with what they teach us on the plane- put your own oxygen mask on before you assist others.   Quote of the Day: “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” - Audre Lorde   Takeaways: “Taking care of yourself = keeping your cup full. If you don’t do things to keep your cup full, you have nothing left to give or share with others.” – Paige Burkes Self-care is not selfish. Just because everyone else is consuming a certain type of content doesn't mean you have to do it. Self-care is unique to each person. It's your decision to figure out and communicate to those around you. Let's not judge others on the self-care tactics they choose.   If you need ideas on how to establish a Self-care plan, take a look at this link here.   Resources: Therapy for Black Girls Psychology Today Rainn.org   Where to find us: Twitter: @HERspacepodcast Instagram: @herspacepodcast Facebook: @herspacepodcast Website: herspacepodcast.com Email: herspacepodcast@gmail.com

As Terri and Dom answer questions from the audience they finally answer the question that made you tune in… “How to play by the rules so you don’t get played.”   Quote of the Day: “We love because it’s the only true adventure”- Nikki Giovanni   Takeaways: Dom and Terri did not answer all of the questions so a future episode will be dedicated to answering all of your questions so make sure you send questions via email, herspacepodcast.com.   If you or someone you know is in (or has been in) an uncertain situation and would like some help, go to rainn.org for tons of resources.   Resources: rainn.org Therapy for Black Girls Psychology Today   Where to find us: Twitter: @HERspacepodcast Instagram: @herspacepodcast Facebook: @herspacepodcast Website: herspacepodcast.com Email: herspacepodcast@gmail.com

S1E5: Adulting Woes: When Everyone's Life is LIT and You Feel Stagnant
1818
Terri is scrolling down her social media timeline and noticed everyone else’s life was lit while hers seemed stagnant. She felt overwhelmed instead of inspired. Dr. Dom reminds Terri of her #BlackGirlMagic but noted a bigger issue...what happens when we don’t reach certain adulting milestones? We tend to engage in negative social comparison (your day 1) based on the highlights of someone else’s life (their day 100). We let other people tell us what we should focus on even if it’s not bringing us fulfillment. Dr. Dom and Terri point out some of the milestones many of us are expected to achieve (the good, the hard, the annoying, the fun) and the strategies we can utilize to be comfortable in our own path. Find your fire and make your own life LIT! Quote of the Day: "Don’t set sail on someone else’s star." - African proverb  Takeaways: Your life is yours to create.
