Meeting The Tribe: Introducing Laurence Sessou


We always honor the sisters of our tribe, this month we meet Laurence Sessou, one of the facilitators at our Back To Our Roots Retreat in Benin. In this quick interview she shared with us her story and the spiritual tools she uses in her daily practice.

1. Who is Laurence Sessou?

Laurence Sessou is a Neuromuscular Therapist, aromatherapist, artist-muse, founder of Azoouiwa and co-curator of The Temple of Her Skin.

2. What does the Back to Your Root Retreat represent to you?

It is a great honor to be part of BTOR retreat, my roots are from Benin and having the opportunity to work on Ancestral land is a dream come true. It was the perfect environment to introduce 'Tickle Your Senses' my aromatherapy workshop that focuses on helping people balance their energy centers with the use of essential oils.

3. What is aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy can be defined as the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit.

4. How has aromatherapy helped your life?

I use Aromatherapy everyday, it supports my emotional and physical wellbeing. I use it in my bath, in my moisturiser, in my diffuser at home, I also use it as perfume.

5. What inspired the tickle your sense?

I decided to create 'Tickle Your Senses' thanks to the numerous amount of questions my clients had after their session with me. One client in particular was going through a nervous breakdown, she was also severely self harming. When she shared her triggers, I admitted I had the same triggers too, so she asked 'How do you do it? How do you manage to keep on going? How do you thrive in our world? I had a lot of answers to share and felt I could deliver it in a form of workshop. The idea is that every participants leaves 'Tickle Your Senses' with thriving tools for everyday life struggles.
