What People Say

Our participants are water drops full of love, knowledge and wisdom!

Sacred Waters is a powerful healing forum for Black women to reconcile inter-generational traumatic patterns so that we may liberate our souls and be the best we can for ourselves, our mates, family and community.

This is the magical retreat that I go to every year and get upgraded every time and come back home [and] make major shifts in my life 😍😍😍YOU SHOULD COME! Spaces for US by US."
Rhema Love
Sacred Waters creates a sacred space where opening, growing and releasing are all possible and encouraged. The community that is built over the weekend is supportive and loving, and I can't express enough the gratitude I have over meeting so many gifted women of color in one place. This is one of the most powerfully moving retreats any WoC could attend and I highly recommend it!
