Your Diasporic Soul Heritage and Healing experience will allow you to enjoy Senegal’s rich, thriving and vibrant culture and natural beauty. You will feed your Diasporic Soul and go beyond being a tourist as you learn about the importance of family, community, cuisine, commerce, history and spirituality in Senegalese culture.
You will enjoy the warm, welcoming Senegalese teranga|hospitality in local villages, at our home and in our café . Visiting the Museum of Black Civilizations, Goree Island and the African Renaissance Monument will allow you to recognize and celebrate our capacity for resistance and resilience. Spending time at the beach with Mami Water at Toubab Dialow and Samone Lagoon national park will be a fun way to connect with nature’s healing powers. Visiting the Ville de Artistes and engaging with local artists will allow you to experience the creative aspect of SOUL. Practicing stillness-based yoga and communing with nature will allow you to connect to spirit while you allow yourself to rest, relax and experience restoration.

I am grateful and full and open to all that 2022 has in store for me as I give into the flow being created by the telling of my story. Thank you Phyllis and Eddy for Diasporic Soul ! Because of the space you held for me, the floodgates are open. God and the Ancestors are great!
The most transformative experience of 2021 was being in Senegal.
Levita came to Senegal this summer for her Diasporic Soul Heritage and Healing Experience. Since then, she has “continued to process, reflect on, and write about [her] time here. Most rewarding have been the invitations to share [her] journey. In the past couple of months, [she has] shared from the angle of food and identity at a Jewish synagogue, from the angle of spirituality and the African Diaspora for a Black church, and most recently from the angle of memoir for the faculty of [her] school.”
