Black Wombman Empowered Health Event in Amsterdam

Black Wombman

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!!

Follow up from the Women of the African Diaspora Conference in Amsterdam

As fate would have it my plane from Gotehnburg, Sweden to Amsterdam was cancelled. We were put on the next flight scheduled for 4 hours later, which turned out to be late. I had resigned myself to the fact that I would miss the beginning and middle of the conference, including my panel discussion, and possibly make the networking hour. To my surprise when I arrived my panel had started, but it wasn’t too late for me to join.

WAD panelists

So here are a couple of the photos from the conference with attendees and speakers from Germany, the UK, the Netherlands, Sweden (me), Denmark, and France. There may have been sisters there from other countries (I hope I didn’t leave anoyone out).

Organizers, participants

A full event summary is coming. Black Girl on Mars is writing the first draft (thanks!).
