Wellness Retreat:
Self-Care for Executive Women

Retreat  – 4 Days, 3 Nights (Back by Popular Demand!
March | 22-25, 2018

We often say “A woman’s work is never done,” or, as the commercial jingle drilled into our heads about 30 years ago said, “I can bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan, and never, never, never forget my man, ’cause I’m a woman.”

Well-being and how we achieve and maintain it should be the basis of our life goals. Learning to balance the different demands along with having  enjoyable lives that grow and flourish in spite of all the messages we navigate is key to living your best life.

In my work, I have found that executives and managers often face life style choices, whether in the public eye or at the head of institutions.

What often trips us up on the road to living our passions is that inner dialogue that tells us we need more time, more money, less stress, a partner, a better spouse, more support, more anything, and on and on we go.

Kwayera’s work in New York and globally is now an acknowledged model for community sustainability in indigenous cultures, using best practices in organizational effectiveness and distinctive programming for the well-being of the communities they serve. Her dedication to youth, family, and communities across the Diaspora has led to thriving partnerships with institutions globally and established her as an international innovator in community transformation rooted in cultural intelligence.

Whether our Taste of Culture, Mini Cultural Immersion, or full Cultural Immersion, we deliver an experience that is engaging, meaningful and highly respectful of the community we are visiting.

It is only through personal experiences igniting all senses that results in a sustainable understanding of other cultures.
Learning by doing is the ultimate in intercultural learning.

Through our International Exchange and Studies, we offer travelers and their families the invaluable opportunity to fully immerse in the cultures they visit and establish relationships with an international community of peers. Enjoying the landscape of the destination country by bus or by bike, travelers learn first-hand about a culture. By embarking on a two-week trip to a country where African descendants make their home, we visit ecological efforts, social ventures, and educational, civic and cultural leaders.

What makes our tours unique is the access to areas not usually accessible to the public giving travelers a creative way to learn, exchange, and collaborate with some of the world’s most inspiring and often invisible communities.

We look forward to inspiring you…
