Kay Thellot Prensip Minokan.jpg

" My name is Kay Thellot and I would like to offer my wellness services to The Lavender Collective community. I am currently completing my clinical practicum with Yorkville University towards obtaining my Master's degree in Counselling Psychology.

As a Manbo Asongwe (initiated Vodou Ayisyen practitioner), I've oriented my studies and my practice towards uplifting Afro-Indigenous spiritual practices as the means by which our Zansèt (Ancestors in Kreyòl Ayisyen) cared for themselves in colonial and neo-imperialist spaces that dehumanized and commodified their bodies, minds, spirits, time and spaces. Especially in the African Diaspora, notably the Caribbean, these sacred frameworks were spaces of resistance towards archiving their heritage and reclaiming agency and self-determination. With Prensip Minokan, I hope to carry on this legacy in the unceded and sacred Kanien'kehà:ka land of Tiohtià:ke as we navigate the 21st century."
