New Book

To Begin A Journey in Self Love & Healing

"Ibrahim reveals an intimate journey with love and loss. She offers irresistible strategies for a disciplined self-criticism, a gentle but serious awakening of the consciousness, and the gift of revelations that can heal trauma. 

 

This is reading for grown folks and those who aspire to grow into the fullest possibility for their lives. A deeply compassionate and revealing offering."
