​Generational Trauma Stops Here

We aim to create intentional space for exploration, healing, and growth.

What if you were able to identify where some of your problematic beliefs and behaviors started, heal, and move forward not repeating the same patterns, would you do it? Many don't realize that's an option. So many of us are living out our traumas and calling it personality - "that's just how I am." Trauma that is not transformed is transmitted and many of us are numerous generations into this cycle. Trauma travels from generation to generation until someone is ready to feel it, heal it, and let it. It can stop with you!

Healing is possible, and we are here to travel the journey alongside you.

Corporations, Organizations, Churches

In order to effectively address the needs of people of Culture (BIPOC) during this time of racial trauma and revolution one must understand that systemic oppression is comprised of Ideologies that are carried out through Institutions. These ideologies impact how people interact Interpersonally and influences Internalized narratives (4 I’s of Oppression). Shifting organizational culture to one of anti-oppression and anti-racism involves a combination of Safe Space generation, Brave Space cultivation, and education with ongoing follow-up. Labors of Love is prepared and equipped to support corporations, organizations, and governments on their journey.
