Daughters of the Soil were thrilled to host our first, luxury, racial wellness retreat in Ghana in 2019.
This vision was aligned with the Ghanaian government's global 'Year of the Return' campaign which marks the 400 year anniversary since our ancestors were stolen from the shores of Africa.
The team had been talking about this vision since 2017 and it's auspicious that this is coming together in alignment with the global movement of our people returning home to the motherland.
The experience delivered a mix of compassionate workshops and adventures to help you reclaim your mind, body and soul with an attitude of prosperity and abundance in the way we care for ourselves.
Through group work, mindfulness and cultural nourishment, the sista's returned home with a deeper love for self and a renewed passion to step into the fullness of their purpose on this earth and in this lifetime!
Full details of the first retreat are below. We are planning to host the 2020 retreat in October. Enter you details at the bottom of the page to register your interest.
The retreat took place from 10th - 16th November 2019 and the content focused on racial wellness, identity and a 'Return to Self.'
Retreats are immersive, can be intense and very confrontational. so although it will be healing and restorative, we will also be covering some deep issues. This retreat is not the best place to begin addressing deeper issues if you haven't done any prior healing work.
Also in terms of duty of care, it's important that we know some of your history in order for us to support you effectively through the processes that may unfold. If you plan to attend this retreat with a friend, please ask them to contact the team in advance at the email address below so we can assess suitability.

Who am I? What constitutes your concept of self? Is it your values, your beliefs, your job, your country of birth, your religion, your ancestry? What roles do you play in life?
Who am I as a black woman? Is the relationship with your blackness dominated by the demands of whiteness or are you able to show up within your cultural values? This self awareness session is all about code switching and the confidence to be your authentic self.
Mothers, daughters and white supremacy. Dr Francis Cress-Welsing was an American psychiatrist who wrote extensively about the psychology of racism in her ground-breaking book, The Isis Papers. In this session we will take her message to the black woman and explore the role of White Supremacy in mother daughter relationships.
How did the relationship modeled within your family impact your romantic relationship choices or lack of relationships, unhealthy relationship dynamics.
The art of receiving love- For many of us, our basic human need to love and be loved is a deep source of shame. In this session we will explore how shame and codependency feed our love avoidance and how to surrender to the art of receiving love.
Who are you in a global, historical and social context, under the system of white supremacy, you as an African woman or descents of African women.
My black is beautiful - How do you feel about your black femininity? Your shade and softness? Your curves and hair? In this space we will explore the politics of beauty, releasing victim-hood and embracing the power of your inner goddess.
Who am I Now? Accepting 100% responsibility, taking back your power and accepting your soul purpose.
