Why this Retreat?

Work, microaggressions, racism, news media propaganda, social media, family, relationships, and the pressure, isolation, and solitude that come with everyday life in Black america are unnatural assaults on our spirit. 

A grounded cultural self-identity is about more than what we wear, think, or do. What if you could find a way to tap into an inner strength that allowed you to change the circumstances around you. 

Register and experience a 3-day all-inclusive retreat where every meal, and experience lends to help you mute the external pressures through a new sense of connection and inner power.
