ANNELLE TAYLOR (NP-C, WHNP-BC, MSN, RN) (She/her)
Annelle Taylor is originally from Mississippi and currently lives in NYC. She has been working as a Reproductive Health and Primary Care Nurse Practitioner at a community health center in the South Bronx for over a decade.

A stage IV cancer diagnosis in 2018 led Annelle to realize that in order to truly heal, she would need to both take her amazing Western cancer medicine AND engage in methods and actions outside of the walls of medicine to dissolve and resolve her own internalized paradigms—namely white supremacy—via the language and actions of trauma-informed collective liberation based in anti-racism ideology. She believes that we are not well until we are all well and we cannot heal or ever fully dismantle our own internal systems of oppression and those that divide us systemically until we name the way we are implicit in said systems of oppression and start really listening to each other in brave spaces. She believes that sharing and actively hearing the stories of our lived experiences is how we will realize our love for each other. This is not a love simply manifest. This love requires that righteous rage and all the emotions be welcome, held, and honored. This love requires both shadow and pleasure to be held with equal importance as sources of inspiration and transformation.

In 2020, from the frontlines of the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic, she co-founded the Healing Circle for Healthcare Workers based in a collective healing process she learned by sitting in many circles herself and receiving much guidance and many divine transmissions about how to heal from the devastations of a viral pandemic while confronting the more insidious epidemics of systemic oppressions that contribute to collective burnout. This work has grown into the organization she leads called Circle Alchemy, which supports healthcare workers and burntout bitchez to heal from stress, overwhelm, and burnout and have fun doing it!

She now leads the Healing Circle for Healthcare Workers program in various medical organizations seeking to heal from the systemic harm inherent to the medical education system and she creates courses, retreats, and community resources for folx identifying as Burntout Bitchez! Since she discovered Clarity Breathwork in 2018 while healing from the initial stages of cancer, she knew she wanted to return to this beautiful practice which she now sources as an integrative tool for processing all that comes up during her powerful 1:1 and group sessions.
