“The Sanctuary” is an informational radio show for black and brown women to be inspired, educated and empowered. “The Sanctuary” addresses the well-documented, health and wellness disparities and shares long-lost, indigenous, holistic methods of healing our bodies with a focus on nutrition; dissecting the top lifestyle issues facing women from the diaspora (i.e., diabetes, cancer, heart disease) while highlighting local change-agents who are working to positively impact the trajectory of the community.
Wendi Cherry is a 25-year entertainment and event production veteran who left corporate America to birth her life’s work, The Goddess Awakening & Healing Sanctuary, LLC, a full-service, holistic life-coaching revolution, focusing on nutrition with a mission to provide a safe place where powerful black and brown women who feel exhausted, stuck, and unfulfilled, or simply need a reset, can unapologetically transform into their most authentic and healthy selves.
After battling her own health challenges, many of them due to work-related stress, Wendi became a student of integrative (holistic) medicine when she became exposed to non-traditional healers who taught her the philosophy that by balancing her mind, body and spirit she was capable of healing herself. Besides coaching, she is the mom of a teen, world-traveler and writer who shares her journey of self-discovery through love, spirit, wellness, adoption and reconciliation at FromJerZtoMe.com.
Wendi holds a certification as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.
