Workshop Information

Black Wombman Empowered Health workshop is a well needed space created for like minded sisters to gather together for honest, open dialogue about challenges to health, spirituality, diet and healing that black wombmen face. The space created is for us to share our stories, energies and heal together.

Within this space we will impart knowledge about diet, nutrition, health, spirituality & emotional healing. We will support you to uncover your innate power tools and gifts to suceed in life. To help and improve your relationship with food, family, friends and most importantly with self.

Spirituality is defined as one’s personal relationship with divinity and focuses primarily on ones individual experiences of the transcendent. Health is defined as healing the body, mind and soul from inside out. Spirituality and health are vitally important to the psychological well-being of black wombmen. The two fit like a hand to a glove. In order for the black wombman to rise and reclaim back her leadership role in her community, spirituality and health must be reconnected and become harmonious and balanced within.

Our approach to facilitating the Black Wombman Empowered Health workshop is unique, empathic, holistic, creative and empowering. So book your ticket and be a part of an authentic experience. Come and enjoy soulful connections with like minded sisters as you reclaim your health, spirituality and life. Embrace a new way of being, perceiving and experience greater freedom, joy and well being. Bring along a journal and wear comfortable clothing. We look forward to seeing you there!!
