Details & Online Registration

Program information

The final session is on Saturday, April 17th. You are welcome to join regardless of previous session attendance.

Although there are some bright lights in our world, we continue to live in incredibly challenging times. And as we know, black women are among those experiencing the greatest challenges. But we also know that the challenges black women face mean tremendous transformation is possible—for us and our world. Our work together during the fall of 2020 affirmed that a supportive community of other black women can help us do our own deep inner work, work that is needed to bring about the transformations that are possible.

Please join the Black Women’s Radical Self-Love (Mini) Retreat Series—Round Two—with Dr. Veta Goler, where we will engage in transformative contemplative practices and processes. If you attended the fall retreats, this will be a continuation. If you are new to this retreat series, no worries. Attendance in the fall series is not required for participation in Round Two.

The winter/spring 2021 dates and themes are:

Saturdays from 12-2:30pm ET

January 16th    Aligning with the Universe through Gratitude
February 20th Seeing Beauty in the World
March 20th The Wonder of My Body
April 17th Loving Myself Radically

Veta is a national Circle of Trust® facilitator, and many of the retreats and workshops she leads are based in the work of education innovator Parker J.
