Preserving Peace Wellness
A Black Woman's Exhale Retreat
August 16th-20th 2024
Mission: Preserving Peace Wellness Retreats was curated out of the healing journey of one black woman who experienced the power of Sacred Sisterhood and bringing black women together to dismantle and dissolve themselves from the chains of the world to be able to live a prospering and nourishing life. Preserving Peace Wellness is curated to guide black women into the depths of their being to explore all that has been lost and forgotten. During these retreats, we will give our sisters the tools to become increasingly aware of what’s happening inside and around us. We are awakening from unconsciousness and, as a collective, consciously connecting to spirit, source, and energy. Our retreats are not about finding ourselves but rediscovering, reconnecting, and remembering every aspect of ourselves to live a more fulfilled and abundant life. While attending the retreats, sisters can expect to connect with other black women through meditation, yoga, dance, circle gatherings, holistic eating, spiritual rituals, and connecting to nature. Our intention is not to be on vacation but to create a restorative, recharging, and free environment that allows us to return home to our self-sanctuary. Sis, this is a call, a movement for those who desire to connect to their inner being, activate their femininity, and reclaim and preserve their peace.

We invite you to lean into the holistic wellness tools of self and those that will be taught to support your inner healing, self-regulation, and spiritual growth.
