Communal Heritage & Healing Retreat for Black Women
Enjoy a six-day communal heritage and healing retreat for Black women in Senegal, West Africa. Our retreat will allow us to restore our connection with our SOUL. We will explore Senegal’s vibrant and dynamic culture, (re)connect to nature, celebrate our collective capacity for resilience and resistance through visits to the Museum of Black Civilizations, Goree Island and the African Renaissance Monument, journal as well as practice healing rituals and restorative yoga.
We will be lodging at the Tangor Guest House, our comfortable, safe and love-filled home. Accommodations consist of double rooms with one single-bed and one full bed, armoire, meditation cushion and bedside table. Guests use our spacious dormitory-style bathroom. Our community convenings are held on our downstairs terrace, balcony and salon. And, of course, we have wi-fi, although we only want you to use to call home not to work.
All on-site meals are included in your retreat package; off-site meals are not. Many of our meals will be eaten communally as the practice is customary in African cultures including Senegal. The majority of our meals will include a number of traditional Senegalese dishes. Please let us know if you need us to provide vegetarian variations when possible; we will do our best to accommodate you.
We recommend traveling via JFK (New York) via Delta Airlines or Air Senegal, which offer a direct flight to Senegal’s airport (DSS), which is a few short minutes from the Tangor Guest House. Of course, you may consider other airlines, including Air France, Tap Portugal, Air Maroc, who fly into Dakar with a range of layover locations, including CDG or Casablanca, respectively. However, these routes have longer layovers.
Of course, 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.
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.
