Let’s settle it:
You ARE Enough.
Many women experience feelings of self doubt, low self -esteem, shame and the feeling of not-good-enough… somtimes due to being a survivor of sexual, mental or physical abuse. At other times, this lack of confidence or feeling “not enough” seems just an unexplainable emotion and consistent reality.
The I Am Enough Retreat is here to help you UNLEASH your voice, OWN your value and WALK into your destiny. Because, you are MORE than enough.
The target audience for this event is women who are trapped and want to be free from their abusive past and step into the best version of themselves. The retreat will provide an avenue for continued healing on their journey to wholeness as well.
Friday Night begins a Native American Smudging ceremony followed by LIVE painting by Art by Treva, musical selections by Rossi Lopez, and spoken word by Angelina Deberry and Briana Harris. Woven in between are three POWERFUL presenters, Dr. Saecilia Jackson, Vanessa Torres, and Dr. Carol Chandler who will share information to bring awareness and encouragement to participants.
