Preserving Peace Wellness Retreat
Before I Knew Me: Returning Home to Self
June 11th-June 15th 2023
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.

Shakira Hunt, Owner and creative director of Shakira Hunt Creative serving women in business for the last 3.5 years. Shakira graduated from Moore College of Art & Design, earning a BFA in Interior Design, leading her into a design practice for 3 years before taking the leap into full time entrepreneurship as a Photographer. What started off as a simple creative outlet, swiftly turned into a serious passion of hers, which ultimately landed her into operating her own practice. As a creative entrepreneur Shakira has developed her personal body of work titled “Give me my flowers” which kicked off just in the middle of the pandemic as a way to “get outside and create”.
Shakira Hunt successfully explored the masculine storytelling over the last year celebrating the work with 2 solo exhibitions and installations, which led her to finally delve into the next segment to this series, and biggest collaboration with Planned Parenthood at Essence Fest. She realized even during the initial development of the work a year ago, that she was being called to also explore the feminine +mother, to navigate the existing wounds that have existed between her and her mother and her mothers lineage. As an active artist and creative Shakira finds balance in her world by tapping into both sides, and leaning into the work and connection to her community that excite her most. For the last 1.5 years Shakira has aligned herself to “retreat life” and has been a serial retreater, documenting women in wellness all over the world. Shakira has been able to swiftly navigate and develop her practice of travel photography, not just highlighting the retreat experience, but also providing individual goddess style sessions for retreaters. Submerged in nature and providing an experience that is fully transcending spiritually, and self affirming in so many ways – Shakira beautifully captured women, in a way they have never seen themselves. True Magic.
