Since 2017, Soar Higher You Never End, Inc. has been providing experiences rooted in diasporic liberation. While we have seen outstanding impact, life on this side of COVID-19 sheds light on the urgency and even more critical need for our work.
SHYNE's mission is to help restore well-being within the African diaspora by centering the unique roles of women and girls. We know it is impossible to actualize community liberation without pedagogical strategies that promote mental and emotional healing, radical self care and healthy intergenerational relationships.
SHYNE envisions a world where women embody their unique roles as conduits for societal transformation - and, develop our girls to do the same. We envision a world where the burdens of race-based trauma and internalized oppression are no longer the reality of African descendants. We believe in the possibility of a world where all humanity is valuable and spirituality is a central component of our daily lives.
OUR CORE VALUES
The following 5 pillars inform our methodology. Every experience we offer incorporates one or more of these foundational inputs.
The SHYNE, Inc. approach combines spirituality with psychology, sociology and social justice education to facilitate life-shaping experiences. We utilize Yoruba spiritual traditions, mental and emotional healing and holistic wellness to inform our strategies. Our curriculum, known as the Sacred Art of Self Study (SASS), is a robust approach in Self development that draws upon spirit, mind, emotion and body.
