This event was intended to cultivate a safe space for Black women to talk about strength– what strength means, when they feel strong, and ways to foster strength in their lives. With the mission of encouraging self-care and a holistic approach to health and wellness among Black women. The retreat encouraged vulnerability, community support, and emphasized the role of self-care for living healthy, whole, and successful lives.
During the event, attendees engaged in 3 breakout sessions to explore self-care for the body, mind, and spirit. I had the honor of leading the body breakout session where we explored gentle movement, created affirmations for our bodies, and expressed gratitude to our bodies for all the ways they provide for us.
