I hope you will join us as we celebrate the 10th Annual Sankofa Sisterhood Writers Retreat here in the Dominican Republic!
Join us for this 6 day / 5 night experience.
May we stop allowing for the imposter to rob us of our joy and trust that it is our right to write our stories. You are worth it!
ABOUT THE SANKOFA WRITERS RETREAT:
SANKOFA DEFINED: Sankofa is an African word from the Akan tribe in Ghana. The literal translation of the word and the symbol is “it is not taboo to fetch what is at risk of being left behind.” The word is derived from the words: SAN (return) KO (go)
Using the Sankofa symbol we are reminded by our ancestors that we must always go back and get what is rightfully ours. May we never be afraid to write our stories and take up space. May we never be afraid to write our truth. The Sankofa Sisterhood Writers Retreat is a self-care retreat for writers.
This is a week designed to give you what you need to rest, recharge, create and work on projects that are important to you. In a comfortable house in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, you will be provided a sacred space to create, hone and nurture your craft surrounded by nature and the divine feminine. We will also be nourishing our bodies with a personal chef cooking all of our meals. In order to access true creativity, we must tap into a source that often feels unattainable to us in our day-to-day lives.
THE RETREAT IS FOR:
Women of Color.
Writers who need time and space to write.
Women who need a break to nourish their creativity, body, mind, and soul.
Writers who have works they would like to complete.
Women seeking the support and encouragement of “writing in community.”
THIS RETREAT OFFERS:
Workshops, private time for writing and/or working on personal projects, relaxation, solitude, and community. We will have a private chef, yoga, meditation, and time on the beach.
