Layla SaadWriter. Poet. Speaker. Guide.
- Toni Morrison
My name is Layla Saad and I am the founder of WildMysticWoman.com, where I write and host powerful conversations on the intersecting themes of spirituality, creativity, feminism, business, leadership, and sacred activism.
There are two forces that drive my work: Anger and Love.
At the world for the way women of colour suffer under cultures of oppression such as patriarchy and white supremacy.
For women of colour, and the way we create healing and transformation in the face of these cultures of oppression.
It is these powerful forces of Anger and Love that propel me to write and hold space for
conversations that center the stories, art and magic of women of colour.
As an East African, Arab, British, Muslim, feminist, soul seeker, living in the Middle East (Qatar), and sharing my work with the global community, I stand at a diverse intersection of identities, from which I am able to draw rich and intriguing perspectives. My own personal journey as a black Muslim woman, my past work with mentoring clients and my writings often confront the oppressive cultures of patriarchy and white supremacy. Through my work, I am devoted to centering and uplifting the stories, art and magic of women of colour.
Words can heal.
Poetry is not a luxury.
The spiritual is political.
Women of colour are magic.
I am currently writing my first book which explores the intersections of spirituality, race, feminism, sacred activism, conscious business and the leadership of women of colour.
