SATURDAY, October 29th, 10AM-3PM | PDT

Many have lost their connection to the vital thread of life that links us to the wisdom of the Ancestors and the incredible power, beauty and dignity this connection brings. With all that is going on in the world, now more than ever, we need the revitalizing connection to the wisdom of our Ancestors for healing, direction and comfort.

In this BIPOC ONLY Retreat, will incorporate InterPlay, shamanic journeys and indigenous practices to honor our Ancestors and acknowledge their struggles and gifts. Then we will embody their best qualities and make our own commitments to honor their legacy, becoming good Ancestors ourselves. Remembering our essential connection to Nature, and each other, we will share the Soul nourishing stories of our Ancestors and reflect on how they give us strength and resilience, in a circle of belonging.

Our intention is that you leave with a greater embodied connection to that which nourishes and feeds your Soul; and with tools to help you to access this wisdom + comfort anytime.

  • Connect with + remember the gifts of your Ancestors.
  • Embody your innate power and beauty.
  • Give voice to your Ancestral wisdom.
  • Dance on behalf of your Kin + celebrate all Life.

Financial support for this project has been provided by the Racial Equity and Transformation (RET) Mini Grant through InterPlay.


The financial support from the RET Mini Grant through InterPlay enables us to offer this price to any Black, Indigenous and People of Color on a first-come-first-serve basis. No one turned away.
