About the Event
Join us in celebrating Lindsay Fauntleroy's new book IN OUR ELEMENT, a healing resource that integrates plant medicine, acupuncture theory, yoga, and spiritual principles from the African Diaspora- all through the lens of a Black girl in Brooklyn.
In Our Element
When you are in your element, you feel an amazing flow. You shine. You feel energized and vibrant. Your gifts and talents create abundance. You feel confident and authentic. Your relationships are loving and nourishing. You have a deep sense that you are fulfilling the deeper meaning and purpose of your life.
There are also times when you feel stuck. You may spend nights staring at the ceiling, filled with worry and anxiety. A weight of depression keeps you from enjoying the things that matter. You feel afraid, doubtful of your dreams, and unsure of the decisions that led you here.
The point is, there are times when you're in your flow, and times when you’re not. This book teaches you how to use Soul Medicine to regain your footing, tap into your latent potential, and find your flow.

Belonging to each other, to the Earth, to the Universe, and more than anything else to ourselves. It is a home for healing, not only as a way to feel good, but as a means to create change in the world -at MINKA, individual healing is considered to be one of the most crucial ingredients for social change. MINKA brooklyn opened its door in 2016 in Flatbush area of Brooklyn. During the pandemic, they pivoted from being in a single location to working with mission aligned partners to create constellation of healing and wellness.
