"Black feminisms have provided a foundation from which it becomes more possible to speak and write of interconnection-of a spirited life, soul, a natural mystic blowing through the air-and engagement with all of this in therapeutic practice." Part thesis, part memoir and part poetry, this book is unlike any other therapeutic text. *therapist and writer Foluke Taylor explores how the centring of black women's experiences in therapeutic scholarship allows for greater space-space for wandering, for wondering and for deepening narratives-in every therapeutic relationship. Beginning with the book's poetic structuring, Taylor rejects the need for a streamlined solution, instead inviting the reader to take a different path through her crucial research-one that is unruly, nonlinear and celebratory of the richer, fuller narratives allowed for by black feminisms.
