Women of Color Self-Care Retreats are an exclusive intimate setting where I personally host 3-5 women at a time in a beautiful jungle home. Rather than a retreat center, we stay in a big, beautiful jungle house where we will share meals at our communal table and snuggle on the sofa after a sweet day at the beach. You can expect gentle yoga practices, nourishing plant-based meals, group sharing, and peace with self on the tropical beaches in the Caribbean. There will be plenty of leisure time, during this time you can explore the beautiful Caribbean of Costa Rica or take some well needed rest time.
Traveling and living abroad has allowed me the opportunity to embody and manifest a life style of genuine self-care. This immense practice of self-care has allowed me to build my own empire, live abroad, co-author a book, be on television and assist black women in resetting while being a globally known wellness influencer. You can learn more about my journey here.
Self-care is prioritizing yourself first. It is listening to your mind, body and spirit. It’s taking care of yourself on a daily basis. Self-care is vital for women of color because Black women are too often taught to put everyone else’s needs before their own. As women, we tend to be nurturers and supporters by nature, but this nurturing and supporting of everyone else's welfare, can leave us feeling burnt out.
The intimate self-care retreat is a chance to unwind from the burn out that you may experience from everyday life. Sometimes we just need a reset button, without any distractions just to connect back with ourselves, in order to restore and rejuvenate. It’s the perfect opportunity to take some well deserved quiet time.
I want to experience a self-care retreat with a friend, is this possible?
The Women Of Color Self-Care Retreat is intended for solo travelers, each participant arrives solo and will meet new people at the retreat! If you are interested in attending a retreat with a friend and you are interested in having a private self-care retreat with a group, reach out to us with the dates you are interested in.
Private Self-Care retreats host 3 people minimum/ 5 people max.
