Black Women Dream

Black Women Dream invited black-identifying women to participate in three months of activities (June-September, 2023) that involved dance, wellness, art, and visioning. Participants engaged in movement and art practices and received wellness supplies and coaching, and training on tracking their goals toward creating the life they want to live.  


Our meetings occurred virtually and in person, and participants were encouraged to share their progress throughout the project. The June weekend retreat was held at Soul of the Land Retreat Center in Fallbrook, CA. Housing and food were provided. The additional in-person workshops occurred in the Temecula Valley, culminating in a West African dance celebration.
