A Spiritual retreat exclusively for people of the African diaspora

Ever been to a yoga retreat? Or meditated? Do you remember how it felt to finally breathe? To get back in touch with your inner wisdom? Or do you remember the overwhelming feeling of joy and love that you felt from being at peace with who you are? Now, imagine that same feeling of love only this time through the connection with your ancestors. Awura’s BACK TO OUR ROOTS RETREAT is a never seen before journey into the mysterious and healing practices of Benin’s ancestral spiritual practice of Voodoo. 

The retreat is exclusively created for people of the African diaspora to re-connect with their roots. You will feel EMPOWERED to know the truth of who you are, you will feel grounded and at peace by RECONNECTING WITH THE SPIRIT OF YOUR ANCESTOR.

During the retreat: 
1. We will explore the beauty and sacredness of Benin, West Africa. 
2. We will decolonize the myths and lies that have been past on for generations regarding our personal history as African descendents, our ancestors’ history, our culture and our spirituality. 
3. We will release the pain that our ancestors endured during slavery and colonization through various healing rituals. 
4. We will learn to create balance and peace in our own lives, through the wisdom of our ancestors.
