Full Description

A Black woman’s guide to authentic happiness, healing, and radical transformation

“If you asked my grandmother what self-care was,” says Chianti Lomax, “I’m pretty sure her response would be: ‘Self-care? That’s for rich white women!’” Our mothers and grandmothers were too busy fighting for the future of their families to often consider their own wellness and happiness—and now, as the inheritors of their mighty labors, we have the opportunity to do more than simply survive. So how do we thrive? How do Black women grow, transform, and make good use of the power they have?

In Evolving While Black, Lomax—renowned life coach and “Chief Happiness Curator”—shares a guide to help Black women achieve authentic happiness and liberation on their own terms. By shifting the culturally constrained language and perspective from which mindfulness and self-care practices are normally presented, she breaks down barriers and invites us to bring the power of these evidence-based teachings into our lives, families, and communities. This joyous book paves the way for personal growth, presenting bite-size actions that lead to healing, confidence, self-efficacy, and, most importantly, true self-love. Lomax offers practices, challenges, and reflections in each chapter, exploring topics such as:

  • Self-awareness and self-love—deepening your understanding to find the roots of both your challenges and your gifts
  • The impact of ancestors—understanding how your history and your genes shape your life
  • The power of mindset—discovering limiting beliefs and shaping new mindsets that lead to flourishing
  • Boundaries—rescuing time and peace of mind with healthy boundaries
  • Habit change—identifying habits that hold you back and how to make new habits that last
  • Intuition—connecting with your inner knowing and setting meaningful life goals
  • Life balance—finding your own combination of hustle and flow

With no-bull bravery, honesty, and warmth, Evolving While Black welcomes us into a flourishing space of growth and self-discovery.
