Self Healing (Issue One) by Yellow Pearls

issue one: self healing

Reach within and acknowledge the intersecting oppressions you experience and how it may affect your mental health.

Read mini-lessons about the radical roots of Asian American identity, Black feminist tradition that has guided Asian American feminism, and mental health statistics.

Listen to an interview with kwonyin, a Korean American emotional guide as she talks about her relationship with mental health and her journey to becoming a healing guide for Asian femmes.

And to integrate all of the lessons and wisdom, try the cathartic Mirror Ritual created by kwonyin.


Yellow Pearls is a zine series for Asian American femmes to heal, rage, and learn about community care. Yellow Pearls is made of research, cathartic activities, and insightful interviews with Asian Femmes working in activism and culturally informed healing modalities to radically shift the conversations around mental health in the Asian American community. Yellow Pearls is written and gathered by Samantha Skinner.
