Sometimes we just need to be surrounded by people who can relate to our experience on a deep level. These retreats offer spaces where black women can relax, connect, and heal in a safe community.

Women of Color Healing Retreats

This eco-friendly jungle escape located on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica offers women of color enriching workshops to connect their minds, body and spirits through yoga, hiking on rivers, swimming in the bluest oceans, meditating amongst themselves and each other. Women of Color Healing Retreats was founded by a former New Yorker Satya who is on a mission to “create a sanctuary where African-Americans can experience peace, tranquility, wellness and nature and to practice holistic self-care in a community with people who mirror them.”

The center offers various retreats from Black Women Yoga Retreats to Women of Color Self-Care Retreats where African American women can be their authentic selves surrounded by those who share their experience.
