"The greater the level of calmness of our mind, the greater our peace of mind, the greater our ability to enjoy a happy and joyful life." - Daila Lama
Does any of this sound familiar?
- Ugh, I'm so stressed out.
- If it's not one thing, it's another.
- I just want some peace.
- I need to get away from everything.
- I just feel so overwhelmed.
- I never get time to myself like I want to; there's just too much to do.
- I feel like I'm gonna snap.
- I have to stay strong and push through because that's what "we" (i.e., Black women) do.
I know I've definitely said/thought most, if not all, of the above. And if I'm being totally honest, I still have these feelings from time to time, even as the calm coach.
Look, I'm a mama to a five-year-old who deals with many of the same stressors and life things as you, I'm well aware of this feeling, and I know how chaotic and overwhelming life be and/or feel at times.
On some level, you might even feel that it's not possible for someone like you to be calm and live from a space of peace. As a Black woman, maybe you were taught that you have to put everyone else before you. Maybe you learned that stress and overwhelm or just a part of your life, and there's really nothing you can do about it but grin and bear it. Or, maybe you've just never known anyone in your circles that use practices like meditation, yoga, and mindfulness, so you feel it's not for you.
Well, I want you to know it is possible to experience more inner peace and that there are some amazing tools and techniques that allow you stay calm, cool, and collected (not all the time, but more often than not). And I'm here to share them with you.

My journey to finding my calm started back in 2014, a few months after I had my daughter, Nailah. I was trying to balance being a new mama, a wife, and an entrepreneur -- and I felt like I didn't have enough help from my husband. On top of feeling stressed out, overwhelmed, and frustrated, I felt guilty because I couldn't do it all. I was frustrated. I was overwhelmed. I was miserable and disappointed.
Ultimately, I had a wake-up call, an a-ha moment as Oprah calls it. And I knew I had to do something different. I had to do something to feel better, not only mentally and emotionally but physically, too. So, I started working on myself: I journaled to figure out what I wanted and wrote new affirmations around how I wanted to feel and who I wanted to be. I also searched for more strategies online (because that's what I do), and that ultimately led me to re-starting my meditation practice. And as cliche as it sounds -- it changed my life!
I now feel more centered, harmonized, and have an overall sense of calm most of the time. And when I do feel stressed, I have my go-to practices that bring me back to the space of inner peace.

Listen to What Other Clients Have to Say
"I just want to say 'thank you,' I've never been able to meditate before I found your videos!"
"Coach Jamie Fleming-Dixon is the best, and for anyone that has a busy life, career, etc., this coach will get you right. And I'm beyond thankful for her."
"I had an amazing time. It was my first time doing yoga, and I was super nervous. Once everything started, I felt myself relax. I was peaceful and an experience that I will never forget."
"Jamie is great. She made a [meditation] audio that I listen to and all around sends good vibes while showing you practical ways to maintain inner peace.
This is for you if you:
- Are tired of being stressed and overwhelmed -- and you know it's time to do something about it.
- Are open to trying a different way to change your life.
- Want to feel more calm, content, harmonized, and at peace in your daily life.
- Have no clue where to start when it comes to stressing less, and you want some guidance.
- Are willing to spend just a few minutes a day on creating and sustaining your practice.
This is NOT for you if you:
- Are okay with the way your life is now and don't want to make any changes.
- Are not willing to take some time for yourself for calm daily (or at least a few days a week).
- Don't believe it's possible to create more calm and inner peace.
Stress is just a part of life, right? So, why should I do something about?
Yep, if you're living in this modern society, I'd say you definitely are going to experience stress (unless you're like a super enlightened individual or a monk or something). And while some stress can be beneficial, dealing with constant stress and overwhelm can lead to an increased risk of high blood pressure and diabetes, muscle tension and aches, anxiety, overthinking, and increased irritability or frustration (just to name a few).
When you start managing/lessening your stress, you:
- Have a sense of inner calm.
- Are more joyful/more content.
- Worry less.
- Live in the moment more.
- Feel better physically, mentally, and emotionally.
And I think these are things we all want to experience more of, right?
Do Black people really do yoga and meditate and other stuff like that?
Short answer: Uh, yeah!
Longer answer: I know, if you're not too familiar with this world, you probably think of non-melinated folks when it comes to these practices. And it doesn't help if you do a search on Google or Instagram, those are the people you'll see, 9 times out of 10. Fortunately, teachers and practitioners are becoming more visible and showing that Black people do yoga, too!
Okay, cool. Now, is this gonna require a lot of my time? Because I really don't have a lot of it.
Trust me, I get the fact that you have a lot going on in your daily life, and it might seem damn near impossible to add something else to your to-do list. This is why the tools you receive with Black Mom Calm Monthly can be done in around 15 minutes or less per day.
Another great things about these practices is that you don't need hours to begin experiencing more calm. As long as you're consistent with your practice and make time for it, it will work for you.
I'm a Christian or Muslim (or have other spiritual/religious beliefs). Is it okay for me use this?
No matter what your beliefs are, these practices can be complimentary to your prayer life, your Bible reading, etc., especially when it comes to enhancing your inner peace, balance and harmony in your life. I believe that the Creator wants us to enjoy our time here, and having inner peace is a part of this.
All of this sounds great, but can't I just find this online for free?
Sure, you can spend your precious free time searching dozens of sites and trying out different things, hoping to find something that works for you. Or, you can choose a more simple route: Get a guided meditation, yoga video/sequence, affirmations, a mantra, and a monthly check-in call, created especially with you in mind that will bring you more calm.
