This course explains how Black women can overcome self-sabotaging behaviors by demonstrating the phenomena of peptide addiction and its role in adulthood. We will address the great conundrum that the Black woman finds herself in regarding being in a racist society and dealing with a community that undervalues her. Such a conundrum creates cognitive dissonance (or confusion) around her identity, beliefs, and behaviors.
This course will detail many self-destructive behaviors rooted in Peptide addiction based on childhood experiences, ideas, and emotions we experience in our community. I illustrate what those behaviors look like in my mulership theory, which consists of five archetypes many Black women are familiar with. I then explain the collective consciousness within our community that created those archetypes and how they are detrimental to Black women. Finally, I offer solutions on the physical, spiritual, and emotional levels to help Black women break the peptide addiction to dysfunction so they can become enlightened and in tune with their souls.
