Black Womxn’s Retreats
In June 2021, we gathered for our first Black Womxn Resting, Black Womxn Rising retreat at Lake Tahoe. It was a magical, healing experience where we danced, practiced Yoga, and ate organic nourishing food. We gathered in Circle, laughed and cried together and opened our hearts in therapy. In 2023, we again invite you to rest, rejuvenate, and connect to beloved community and the rhythms of nature.
Mornings will include gentle or moderate to vigorous Hatha Flow practice, meditation, discussion, and dance. Afternoons will include free time to soak in the serenity of nature, take a dip in the lake or organized excursions to hiking, kayaking, and breathtaking views. Evenings may include meditation, gentle Yoga, and community building. Private and group therapy sessions are available with Shirley Johnson LMFT to support healing and post-traumatic growth.
Embark on a collaborative journey of freeing our hearts, minds, bodies from the limitations of white supremacist, hetero-patriarchal, capitalist conditioning. Explore our shared and diverse experience as Black womxn, celebrate our beauty, and connect to ancestral wisdom.
Satya teaches in a radically inclusive way with a focus on therapeutics, alignment, and preventing injury.
This retreat is reserved for self-identifying Black womxn. Black includes those from the African diaspora including multi-racial womxn. Womxn or women includes Trans womxn, gender non-binary, genderqueer, gender fluid, cis-gendered womxn, and gender expansive or anyone who has had an experience of feeling marginalized because of the way they move in the world as a womxn. Black womxn of all levels of experience, 18+ in age, religions, abilities, immigration statuses, sizes, and sexual orientations are welcome and celebrated. No previous dance or Yoga experience is necessary.
