The Black Goddess Feminine Power Retreat
Awaken | Heal | Transform
West Virginia (1-hr from Rockville, MD)
May 14 – 16, 2021
Are you a professional Black woman who feels overworked, underappreciated, and just plain old exhausted? Have you lost touch with the feminine side of yourself?
Between navigating life, work, and family, things can feel fast paced, demanding, and stressful. It’s easy to get lost in the sauce and end up at the bottom of a long, ever-growing to-do list.
Black women are groomed to carry heavy weight, to suck it up, to endure––all while still getting shit done.
Throughout your life, you may have experienced trauma that impacts your femininity including physical abuse, sexual abuse pregnancy, menopause, fibroids, breast cancer, weight gain or loss, shame & guilt.
Did you know that these traumas can often be stored in the womb space? It’s time to acknowledge the impact that these traumas have had on you sexually, mentally, emotionally and spiritually in order to begin to heal and transform. It’s time to ask what happened to YOU.
YOUR needs met?
YOUR heart’s desires?
“I want to thank you for showing up and taking care of me by providing retreats for professional women of color. I walked away with “more” than I bargained for. I made life-long friends; and had a very rich cultural experience. The momentum from that trip has not stopped as I was truly transformed. I am dating now, my business has exploded, I am taking impeccable care of my body, enjoying friendship and truly living joyfully. Thank you Regine! Based on your vision and living your purpose, I have been blessed. Desi W.

Venue & Cuisine
For three days you’ll reside at a boutique yoga retreat center on 63 picturesque acres overlooking the Potomac River. Imagine being surrounded in nature — just 60 miles from Dulles Airport, 90 miles from DC & Baltimore — you’ll forget major cities are only minutes away. Plus this rejuvenating locale offers hiking, boating, horseback riding and canoeing.
As soon as you enter the retreat center the ambiance and plush decor will make you feel like you’re in another country. Each bedroom is beautifully decorated in crisp white bedding accented with unique antiques from the Indian city of Jodhpur.
Even the dining room features two hand carved wood tables from India that were re purposed from antique doors. The room has great light and views of the river. Deliciously healthy, vegetarian meals are served on a buffet table created from re-purposed railroad tie from India.
Imagine starting each day with meditation in a yoga room with light pink painted the walls all inspired by the city of Jaipur. The yoga room features Indian hand carved triple arch which frames your view of the Potomac river. Before you step into the room grab a complimentary mat and towel.
You’ll enjoy organic vegetarian meals throughout retreat. All meals are made with local, fresh foods prepared by our private chef, Siri.
Some meals will be in the dining room while others will be served in the eat-in kitchen — a cozy dining experience. You can enjoy morning fruit and coffee next to the rustic stone fire place — a really nice space to watch sunset or sunrise and gather with your new sister-friends.
“Thank you Regine Monestime for an absolutely life-changing retreat. Huge shout out to all in this fabulous tribe for the sisterhood, laughs, embrace, understanding, openness and genuine love. Thank you for letting me journey alongside all of you. You all are absolutely amazing.
This retreat was far more than I imagined and far more than I can sum up in this post. If you haven’t journeyed with Regine please, please do so. You will be unbelievably blessed by the journey.” Chandra Joseph-Lacet
