Adrienne Ero-Phillips, MAOT is a multifaceted, multidimensional coach, therapist, doula, artist, writer.
Throughout her life, Adrienne has found it imperative to heal herself spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically.
Spiritually, she has rooted herself in her own ancestral healing, traveled to Italy, Ireland and Greece to meditate with the spirit of the land of her ancestors, and has been a part of Cauldron Studies, a circle dedicated to the European sacred feminine mystery traditions. She has also traveled to Yorubaland in Nigeria to root to her partner and children’s culture, India to study pranic energy in that strong spiritual vortex, and other places. She finds it crucial to be rooted in her unique cultural heritage as well as honor the universal laws of nature all humans exist within. She currently resides in Minneapolis, MN on Anishinaabe/ Lakota/ Dakota lands.
In 2016, she gave birth to an amazing 7lb. 5oz. baby girl after a harrowing 4 1/2 day birth experience that ended in a cesarean section on leap day. She went through a period of postpartum depression and self doubt that challenged her sense of inner belief and self worth. This deepened her resolve to heal her womb space both physically and energetically. In 2018, she gave birth in an empowered way to a 10lb. 8 oz. baby boy after 22 hours of natural labor. These experiences solidified her life’s work to find inner worth regardless of external circumstances and unlocked her ability to tap into her innate womb wisdom. Now she is on the journey of conscious parenting, an ever-evolving sacred daily practice of joy, inner work, and patience.
She calls upon an unparalleled breadth and depth of collected wisdoms including a masters in occupational therapy, publishing and presenting qualitative research on the healing properties of writing for persons with mental health issues, knowledge bases in anatomy, physiology, neuroscience, lifespan development, doula certification (Hypnobabies), MNRI (Matsugova Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration Institute), craniosacral therapy (Upledger Institute), advanced pranic healing and pranic psychotherapy (World Pranic Healing Foundation, India), trainings in racial justice, equity and cultural competency (Hackman Consulting and CANDO), yoga (Yoga Alliance) and meditation (Vipassana) as well as her living artistic practices of dance and poetry-writing.
She also has the lived experience of being in an inter-racial and inter-sexual orientation marriage as a queer cis white woman, an embodied understanding of intersectionality. She has learned how to embrace the paradigm-shattering in between space she often inhabits and hold the paradox and potent power that comes from a consistent spiraling practice of inner work. For her, this looks like stepping down from the parts of herself that need to be transformed like white supremacy/whiteness, using any privileges for resource re-allocation, and stepping up into other parts of herself that need to be elevated like being the brilliant queer visionary woman she is.
