My Body, My Journey with Dr. Ednita Wright


Learning to love your body is essential on your path to healing.

Throughout this journey, Dr. Nina drew from her spiritual training as an Ordained Minister, Reiki Practitioner, Traditional Healer, and Certified Consciously Awesome Program Facilitator.

The tools in Consciously Awesome brought all of this together, giving Dr. Nina a new level of self-love and empowerment.
