Hey, I'm Listening!

Welcome to Hey, I'm Listening! With Dr. Joan

Hey, I'm Listening celebrates all that is unique about people of African ancestry!

It has been 463 years since the first African slaves stepped on to North and South American soil. Hey I’m Listening is hosted by Dr. Joan – a strong black woman who not only recognizes the traumatic wounds created by the enslavement experience; she is part of a movement that says it is time to heal. She is taking this one step further than most will go and suggesting that we – people of African Ancestry – are 100% responsible for our healing.

Hey, I’m listening invites thought leaders, therapists, community healers, coaches, spiritual teachers, entrepreneurs and community builders of African Descent to join us for a 30 to 45-minute conversation about their personal healing journey, the wisdom they gained along the way, and the passions that rose up in them once the major work was completed.

We believe that it is from our most challenging experiences that we learn the greatest life lessons. It is during these moments that we devise new ways of coping and innovative processes that shift how we think, what we believe, how we live, and the businesses we create.
