Surrendering the Superwoman
Journey to Self-Care Weekend Retreat
July 27 - 30, 2018

with Dr. Kristen Nicholson & Dr. Tasheka Cox

For many women of color, self-care is not a priority, We frequently give and make sacrifices for others, yet often place ourselves at the bottom of our own to-do lists. Not placing ourselves first is costing Black women more than our peace of mind. About 49% of African-American women over age 20 have some form of heart disease. Black women are also disproportionately affected by breast cancer, diabetes, strokes, and hypertension. We maintain incredibly busy lives and manage numerous stressors. Taking time to renew our mind, body, and spirit is essential to maintaining optimal health and well-being as well as the capacity to care for our loved ones.

Join us for a weekend designed for you to reconnect with yourself and hit the reset button on your life. This journey of self-discovery will be cultivated through the practice of yoga, mindfulness, play, thought-provoking discussions, and interactive workshops. Through nourishing practices you will be able to connect to your inner wisdom and redefine what's most important for you to create more peace and joy in your life. 
If you desire an opportunity to foster meaningful connections with other women of color, step out of the busyness of daily life, and engage in nourishing self-care practices, then this is retreat is for you. A deposit of $150 reserves your space on the retreat. We are only able to accommodate up to six women. Since there is limited accommodation space, we recommend that you reserve your spot as soon as possible.
