About Amber Amour
Amber "Amour" Monique Johnson is a Spiritual Coach, Certified Kemetic Reiki Practitioner, Consent and Intimacy Educator, Entrepreneur, and Humanitarian.
Born in Akron, Ohio, Amber attended Copley High School and graduated in 2006. When she was eighteen, she relocated to Paris, France and lived there for five years.
In 2011, Amber graduated Suma Cum Laude from the University of Paris Descartes, where she obtained a degree in French as a Second Language. Later that year Amber relocated to New York City and began her career in social justice as a volunteer for Marriage Equality USA and employee of the Human Rights Campaign.
Through her work with HRC, she helped legalized same-sex marriage in New Jersey, Delaware, and Rhode Island.
In 2014, Amber founded #StopRapeEducate, focusing her efforts on educating the public about sexual violence through chalk art. Six months later, Amber took her feminist chalk art messages from Washington Square park all the way to London, Spain, and South Africa for the first annual #StopRapeEducate World Tour with the support of her Instagram followers.
Creating Consent Culture (CCC) was born in January 2016 and is aimed at normalizing consent, communication, and supporting survivors while teaching safe boundaries, respect, and holistic healing for survivors of sexual trauma.
Today, CCC is called Consentopia! Through Consentopia, Amber teaches what consent is, what consent is NOT, how to authentically support survivors of sexual assault, and how to heal from sexual trauma.
She has been a guest speaker at the University of California Riverside, University of California Santa Barbara, Arizona State University, Manhattan College, and at the University of Cape Town.
Her work has been featured in The Huffington Post, Tiny Buddha, Elle Magazine, Marie Claire UK, and international publications worldwide.
In early 2018, Amber became a Certified Kemetic Reiki Practitioner, a gigantic step in her spiritual journey. This ancient healing system allows her to heal survivors of sexual assault and it allows them to reclaim their bodies and voices.
In 2019, she began offering Heauxlistique Retreats to teach holistic healing to adult entertainers in the lush tropical paradise of Puerto Rico.
Today, she is busy operating her online spiritual supply store, Ancestral Essentials, assisting her growing number of Life Coaching clients, giving interviews and workshops, and writing articles and books about consent.
In June 2021, she continued her education under the Sacred Woman program by Queen Afua.
As of April 2022, Amber is enhancing her ability to help survivors with the GA Network to End Sexual Violence Sexual Assault Advocate Certification Program and she is building a strong team to open up Amour Center a holistic healing retreat center and safe house that is dedicated to helping survivors of domestic and sexual violence and child sex trafficking survivors.
Holistic healing is a form of natural therapy methods that bring balance to the mind, body, and soul. The most common forms of holistic healing used today are: mindfulness, color therapy, aromatherapy, breath work, music therapy, movement therapy, art therapy, and there are dozens of other healing modalities. The options are unlimited when it comes to the number of ways you can heal yourself with natural methods.
Holistic healing techniques can have tremendous results for survivors of sexual trauma who are struggling with anxiety, depression, and PTSD. It's all about finding what works best for you!
