Maisha Najuma Aza, meaning, “Powerful Life, Abounding in Joy”, wholeheartedly embodies her name. Her wanderlust personality has taken Maisha from New York, to Atlanta, to Seattle, New England, to Chicago, Perú, before she finally decided to call Atlanta GA, where she was raised, home again. Simultaneously building her healing practice and attending Smith College School for Social Work, Maisha obtained her master’s degree in Social Work, vastly increasing her knowledge of mental health and trauma. A natural progression from her massage therapy background, Maisha jumped headfirst into sacred sexuality work. When the dust finally settled, Maisha intensified her spiritual and healing work, a practice she began in 1996. This renewal of her spiritual healing and academic goals ultimately lead her to the path of becoming a Tantric Shaman, Spiritual Consultant, launching A Life Alive Consulting Mind Body Soul Healing and subsequently, Black Girl Tantra.
Over the past 22 years, Maisha’s electric energy and reputation as an expert in body work, energy healing and spiritual consulting, became well known throughout multiple U.S. Cities. By 2015 a tremendous rise in requests for Maisha’s powerful sexual healing sessions and her work in facilitating Tantra, sex education, and erotic embodiment workshops led Maisha to launch her consulting subsidiary company, Black Girl Tantra. Accredited with certifications in Integrated Healing Arts, Tantra Sacred Intimacy, Reiki III & IV Master/Teacher, Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage and Neuromuscular Therapy, with a Masters in Social Work, Maisha has expanded internationally. Teaching Tantra, Sacred Sexuality, Erotic Embodiment Sexual Freedom, Body Love and BDSM classes from Sex Down South in Atlanta, Georgia, to International Miss Leather in Northern California, to El Jardín de Jazmín in Lima, Peru.
