The I Am That Woman Retreat was created to be an intimate, peaceful gathering of like-minded women who come together and pour into each other and learn about their holistic wellness; as they build their careers and provide insightful guidance for those transitioning into the next phase of their lives. Founder Twyler Jenkins, President of I Am That Women Movement, stated “This retreat is about ‘Learning to Live’ through holistic wellness.
We spend most of our lives existing and not living, because we do not take the time to be still, be quiet, and be open to find our divine purpose and mission,” said Jenkins. “It is designed to open us up to receive the steps for our ‘next’ phase of life. It’s where personal meets business and a powerful transformation happens within.”
“Each day of the Retreat is designed to provide women with a well-rounded experience of personal reflection, learning, sharing and fun. I am excited to join a movement for and about women to help them live as their best selves,” said speaker Eyvette Jones Johnson. “They will surely leave recharged and optimistic, having a framework to step forward into life-transforming experiences in their professional and personal lives.”
The Retreat will close with a celebration of lessons learned, breakthroughs, and new friendships in sisterhood at a closing dinner on Saturday night.
