Sankofa Sisterhood Writers Retreat DAY TWO

FREE 4 day virtual writer’s retreat for women of color.

Good morning beautiful writers! Grand rising!

We hope you feel rested. This morning you are invited to put good things in your body. Lots of fresh fruits, nuts, light meals, snacks often. Get up and stretch, walk around every 30 minutes (for those who know the pomodoro system you know) we take a 5 minute break after every 25 minutes of writing.

Some things to think about as we share this virtual space (dos and don’ts):
DO NOT Feel as though you have to be connected all three days — all day
DO NOT feel as though you need to speak to everyone
DO NOT feel pressured to write, you might just be called to sit in sessions just to listen and receive
DO come and go as you feel
DO log out during the personal writing sessions to rest your eyes (you will not miss anything) that time is yours to read, play music, and be with your thoughts
DO take the time be still and listen and just just be in community if that is what you need
DO take what you need
DO love on you
DO put yourself first
DO have fun
DO close your eyes often during the day to give them rest
DO begin or continue working on ideas, poems and stories
DO invite women of color you believe could use this space this weekend (we know so many people who could use community and sisterhood)
DO honor what your body
DO put good food in your body
DO stay nourished
DO have fun
DO laugh, cry, and stay open to miracles, healing and experiences of love

Have a beautiful day.
With love,
Yoseli & Alicia
