A Retreat for Women of Color
To address the impact of the unique social and cultural burdens and systemic trauma women of color face, we require an array of paths and practices so that we can reconnect deeply with our innate and sacred wholeness. We need the space and support to communally reflect on themes of trauma, compassion, boundaries, and forgiveness—because together, we can transform our relationship to these societal burdens into the liberation we seek and the well-being we deserve.
Join celebrated yoga therapist and expert integrative mental health specialist Dr. Juko Holiday, PhD, E-RYT, C-IAYT, at this special retreat for women of color to draw on insights across Buddhism, yoga, Christianity, contemporary psychology, and indigenous wisdom traditions. Sit with powerful questions around how to:
- Integrate wounds from the past in a way that does not inhibit wholeness in the present
- Balance compassion and empathy for others with dignity and respect for ourselves
- Risk staying committed to being loving, even though we know it also leaves us vulnerable to being wounded
- Reclaim our spiritual stories, practices, and lives from systems and cultures of abuse.
This intimate, honest, and healing retreat combines dynamic talks, witnessing, and testifying in pairs. You'll also engage in ritual and ceremony, intention-setting, and experiential group and individual exercises to establish and maintain healthy boundaries. Together you'll engage tools to integrate what is uncovered through guided meditation, yoga nidra, and restorative yoga practice.
Embrace the skills and resolution we need to return to our lives tapped into our full resources, inalienable belonging, inherent power, and timeless ancestral knowing.
