Awakening Love: A Return to Self Retreat for Women of Color

Sunday August 13 - Saturday August 19, 2023

The Awaken to Love Retreat is a space curated and dedicated to self care, rest, renewal and passion for women of color. This 6-night, 7-day retreat has been curated with you in mind. Come away with the She, Imprints team to experience all that the beauty of nature holds. Be held in community, within the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean, or stand powerful with the Panamanian jungles of mountains. This retreat will include yoga and meditation practices each day. A gentle, energizing flow in the morning and a grounding, restorative practice in the evening.

"This retreat is heart soothing and a balm for the soul. I promise you, you will not want to miss this opportunity to love on yourself, sis." - Retreat host, Jamilah Pitts.
