Calm in the Chaos: Healing Retreats for Black Women

Enjoy a six-day retreat for Black woman who are seeking Calm in the Chaos.   Our healing practices include exploring Senegal’s vibrant and dynamic culture, (re)connecting to nature, celebrating our collective capacity for resilience and resistance through visits to Goree Island and the African Renaissance Monument, reflective journaling, learning about traditional spirituality, enjoying Senegalese cuisine as well as daily yoga and other body-centered practices (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 and trauma in our Diasporic Souls.

Travel Arrangements

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.
