From Lineage to Legacy: A Retreat for Women of Color Leaders

With Marla Teyolia, Sha’ Roehm and Kavitha Rao

October 9 - 11, 2020

In a world fueled by Capitalism, where our productivity is often equated with our worth, the act of slowing down, of pausing, of tending to our healing as part of our professional work is a radical act.

This is especially true for Black, Indigenous, Latinx and other women of color and non-binary people of color who are overworked and underpaid on a regular basis. The research is finally available to prove what we already knew in our bones for a long time — that the ubiquitous and intersecting systems of oppression are deeply depleting to our leadership and overall well-being.

In order to thrive, we require and deserve deep nourishment and beloved community to witness and celebrate our acts of courage and resilience, sacred space and ritual to remind us of our magic and unique talents, and a place where we can just BE… with the fullness of our humanity, our triumphs, as well as our challenges.

Culture Shift Agency is curating this retreat and community of practice especially for you.

In the fall of 2020, 40 BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People Of Color) women and non-binary individuals will gather in the gorgeous foothills of Blue Ridge Mountains for a weekend retreat that will begin an intentional 40 day practice dedicated to the courageous and joyful work of healing in service of our leadership and the impact we want to make in the world.

Lineage to Legacy is a transformational program that includes:

  • TWO 30-minute coaching calls, One pre-retreat and one post-retreat to support your personalized journey
  • 15+ hours of facilitated program time
  • An embodied and nourishing 40-day practice that will integrate and sustain the commitments you made during this retreat
  • Two post retreat Zoom calls to stay connected to this community and to share reflections
