Faith and June met in London in 2017. Without saying a word, they were instantly drawn to each other’s warmth and serenity. The women felt that they were destined to work together when they discovered a mutual passion for serving black women.
Despite living vast distances from each other (June in the UK and Faith in Australia), the women navigated the challenges of managing different time zones to launch Daughters of the Soil in 2018.
June Allen is a compassionate, London based coach who is unapologetic about racial wellness and healing from the impact of racism. Finding hope in recovery from her own journey of racial trauma and addictive relationships, June has been sharing her experience, strength and hope on racial sobriety through the 12 steps since 2012. She is also a gifted student psychotherapist who is translating her studies within a cultural context to nurture her community.
With her melanin mastermind and coaching programmes, June speaks to the African diaspora to explore the impact of racism and empowers them with tools to understand the system and use cultural nourishment to heal from self-hate, low self-esteem and manage racial stress.
June has been a business owner since 2016 and is committed to building a global movement of brothers and sistas committed to healing themselves and their communities from the inside out.
