Healing means putting the heart, the courage and the energy back in our bodies with our own culture.
ALICE WALKER, ANYTHING WE LOVE CAN BE SAVED
WORKSHOPS & RETREATS
We offer workshops and retreats that integrate SOUL (culture) and contemplative practices, including restorative yoga, ritual, contemplative art, bearing witness and spending time in nature. This includes our annual Calm in the Chaos Healing Retreat for Black Women.
RACIAL HEALING EXPERIENCES FOR BLACK STUDENTS IN SENEGAL
Racial Healing begins with those who have been injured by systemic white supremacy, anti-black racism and epistemic violence. There can be no racial reconciliation until the wounded have time to focus on their healing, restoration and well-being first. We hold space in Senegal for Black students to deepen their capacity for self-awareness, self-care, healing and restoration, resilience and resistance.
Feed your Diasporic Soul and go beyond being a tourist as you learn about the importance of family, community, art, music, cuisine, commerce, history and spirituality in Senegal’s rich, thriving and vibrant culture.
Resources for Healing & restoration
We co-create healing and restoration resources with SOUL. Most recently in response to Covid-19 and ongoing ways that white supremacy, racist violence and anti-black racism continue to harm us and to cause us injury that have resulted in what many are insisting is a racial reckoning.
We hold space for creatives and artists, educators and youth workers, organizers and change agents, and those who hope to find stillness. To heal and restore. To ground. To center. To root. To restore their connections to source, to the energy that Walker speaks of, to their SOUL. To nature. To their capacity to create. To live the questions. To trust themselves, to trust the Universe. To explore, to be curious.
