You are Purposed for Rest, Peace & Joy

Rest is not something you earn. Peace is not something you pursue. Joy is not fleeting. You deserve the same care that you infuse into the people and places in your world.

Self-care is your purpose. Self-care is your legacy.

  Welcome to Self-Care Garden.

Shereka Helena Littlejohn Dunston is the founder of Family Strategists, LLC and the visionary behind Black Life Coach Connection and Black Life Coach Connection Academy. Shereka created Self-Care Garden in Fall 2021 when a Black Life Coach Connection Academy trainee, Margaret Hall, noticed the beautiful plants flourishing in Shereka's Zoom background. Margaret sparked a Self-Care Garden movement that Shereka now integrates into her life coaching services.

Over the years, the Self-Care Garden program has evolved into a space to allow Black women the opportunity to engage in intentional spiritual self-care practices and a space for Black families to practice purposeful, collective self-care. The Self-Care Garden evolution will continue as events and services are curated to infuse peace, purpose, and joy into the lives of the Black community in NC and beyond. 

Shereka has over a decade of professional life coaching expertise, in addition to experience as a master's level social worker, workshop facilitator, podcaster, self-published author, and nonprofit director. 

Shereka has certifications in general life coaching, life coaching for parents and families, life coach training, mindfulness, meditation, and children's yoga. Shereka is a former family therapist for adolescents and their families and former gender-based violence preventionist.
