Amanda Yee, Chef Artist from Berlin + Yema Ferreira, Psychotherapist are holding a two-day workshop intended to reconnect African descent women with themselves and with one another. During these two days, we will engage in healing work to reclaim our identities, cultures, spiritual roots, diasporic food practices, and our union as a people.

As people of African descent, our ancestors have fought for our political and social freedom. We believe that the time for our spiritual release is now and has put this workshop together to provide tangible steps for walking in our birthright. Come explore what it means to reconnect to ourselves and to our Divine Feminine, make intentional connections with others, and walk into the Spring season renewed. 

Chef Amanda Yee, Chef Artist from Berlin will lovingly prepare our meals for the two days. For breakfast, expect an array of fresh plant-based foods created to eat while centering ourselves in preparation for the day or mingling with others. For lunch, she will prepare a buffet style plant-based meal using key ingredients from the African diaspora (please email with any allergies). 

Please note that we are offering partial scholarships and a handful of full scholarships for those unable to pay the full price. If you are able to pay the full price for a ticket, please consider doing so.
