Enjoy a six-day retreat for Black woman who are seeking Calm in the Chaos. Our healing practices include exploring Senegalese culture, enjoying nature, journaling and reflection, traditional spirituality, Senegalese cuisine as well as daily yoga practice (beginners are welcome and encouraged to attend) with a particular emphasis on restorative yoga for resilience.
We are holding space for this retreat in Senegal, West Africa to inform our individual and collective capacity to heal the dis-ease in our Diasporic Souls.
January 17 – 22 & March 2 – 7, 2019
Cost: $1500.00, airfare not included.
We will be lodging at the Tangor Guest House ; accomodations consist of single-occupancy rooms and a spacious dormitory-style bathroom.
You will have access to our rooftop, our plant-filled lower-level terrace, balcony with alcove, a large common space that opens out onto the balcony and our salon. And, of course, we have wifi, although we only want you to use to call home not to work.
Meals, which will include a number of traditional Senegalese dishes, are provided on-site. Please let us know if you need us to provide vegetarian or vegan meal options; we will do our best to accommodate you.
We recommend traveling via Washington, DC on South African Airlines, which offers a direct flight to Senegal’s newly opened airport (DSS), which is a few short minutes from the Tangor Guest House. You may also consider other airlines; however, our retreat will begin on the mornings of both January 17 and March 2. Our retreat will end on the evenings of January 22 and March 7. Other airlines, including Delta|Air France and Air Maroc, fly into Dakar with a range of layover locations. We are certainly happy to make arrangements to accommodate you for an additional night should you chose to arrive on a day early or depart a day later.
*We recommend that you sign-up for price alerts for fare sales, which are quite common between late November i.e. Thanksgiving and early Spring. Prices can be quite discounted during these sales for this time period.
Of course, we will meet you at the airport when you arrive and provide you with transportation back to the airport at the time of your departure.
