A Welcome Home Retreat

for African American Daughters & Sons

That's any African American who seeks belonging and connection with self.

Experience 'Utu' - Kiswahili for Ubuntu.  An expression of humanity, dignity, support, and learning that will stir you towards the continuous transformation of your mind, body, and spirit, while surrounded by sisters who want you to win.

Nairobi | Kenya 

A promise from my heart to yours...



400 years ago, you were taken away from us...

We had no idea how to come out to find you. 

We were disconnected physically and spiritually, 

Yet, we were always meant to be connected. 

Simply because you are family. 

I want you to know, that in spirit we never forgot you.  
We always knew that at the right time we would find each other.  
And that time is now... It's time for you to come home to Africa.  

To come home to yourself.  To reconnect.

So that you can begin to live fully.  To connect with yourself...  
To begin to live the life that you have always dreamed of...
This land remembers you and we cannot wait to welcome you home!

❤️ Your African Sister

The Journey

Do you long to belong?  Wonder why it seems hard to fully own your space, to feel completely at
home wherever you go? Is your inner voice spurring you to go beyond your limitations, so that
the bright light of your soul radiates? Are you yearning for spirit, mind and body alignment? 

Believe it or not, there is a way back home to you.

Join us for this once in a lifetime retreat to Kenya, East Africa, to renew your spirit, discover
the truth of your mind, rejuvenate your tired body, and exchange exhaustion for inner peace.

Guided by African teachers of wellbeing, Jean Adero, and friends, you will remember your spirit, uncover tools that will help you to shift your perspective as you embrace your spiritual awakening and emotional wellbeing.

Restore from the inside-out. Experience daily stillness and movement for your spiritual journey around Kenya's beauty, flora, and fauna. Focus your mind on the life that inspires you and go beyond the physical to love your body for both its form and function. Allow lessons in breathwork, self-care and letting go, your divine feminine/masculine, self-nourishing, and acceptance of who you always were.

It's Your Time...

“Until you dig a hole, you plant a tree,

you water it and make it survive,

you haven’t done a thing.

You are just talking…"
