About This Center
I created Women of Color Healing Retreats out of the desire to connect Black “Americans” (africans) to nature and themselves. The retreat’s goal is to bring women together for healing and community building in the in the gorgeous jungles of Costa Rica. During the retreats the women have enriching women centered workshops, connect their minds, body and spirits through yoga, go hiking on rivers, swim in the bluest oceans, meditate amongst themselves and each other, and they practice holistic self-care in a community with people who mirror them. While I personally am not present at the retreats, you will always have a wellness team to accompany you on your wellness and healing journey. Your instructors can't wait to show you the love of the ocean, and the intricate beauty of the jungle. There will always be someone available to guide you through this experience. Nature is calling and waiting for us to come home. Are you ready to answer back? The retreat is a sacred space that allows women to hear and see themselves in nature. It also is a space to unwind and disconnect from the psychological trauma of systemic racism. This retreat is a custom designed for women of color. If you are afraid of traveling alone, this is the perfect opportunity to begin your travel story because of the support you will receive from your traveling sisters and WOCHR. This is a space for black women to understand the true essence of holistic self-care while healing themselves + their community and we honor and welcome you!

"The WOCHR was an incredible experience that will stay with me for a lifetime. I don't have opportunities to connect with other women of color due to the community I reside in, and left the retreat feeling part of a positive sisterhood. Each workshop allowed me to focus on myself and ways to heal or personal development. I wasn't aware I needed this retreat as much as I did and am very happy I took the leap and attended." - Alexis Bromley
