What we're about

The Outdoor Journal Tour and #wehiketoheal are designed for women who want to dive deeper into their personal development but are bored with traditional self-help methods. Participants will have the opportunity to explore scenic landscapes and hiking trails while being guided through an empowering (and customized) personal discovery process that uses physical activity, journaling and meditation as healing tools. The process includes daily writing prompts, engaging exercises and weekly guided meditations. If this sounds good to you we look forward to welcoming you into the community!

Rooted WMN BIPOC Day Retreat

Needs a location


The Rooted WMN Day Retreat is a sacred space for outdoor respite and relaxation for women of color. This full day retreat is designed to give BIPOC women the opportunity to expand, release and find joy and healing while forging a deeper connection with themselves.


This experience will foster community, introspection and a safe space for women to soak in the healing powers of community and Mother Nature.
Rooted WMN is an all inclusive outdoor day retreat that offers a suite of classes, mindfulness experiences and movement opportunities tailored to the unique needs of its participants. Because of that, a simple application is required to best determine what activities will best serve you.

### The Details

The Retreat will take place on a beautiful lakeside campground just 25 miles east of Atlanta near Conyers, GA. The property address will be shared once your registration is confirmed.

In an effort to amplify the voices of BIPOC women, special care has been taken to ensure that the majority of our vendors and service providers for the event are also women of color.

The Rooted WMN Retreat is limited to BIPOC persons and centers women of color. That means discussion topics, sister circles, and other activities will focus on the BIPOC perspective and experience. Rooted WMN will be a highly personalized experience, because of that capacity will be limited.

We will be following CDC recommended covid-19 safety protocols. Please visit our FAQ page for more details.

### Curated and Custom

As seasoned practitioners in this field we understand that one size does not fit all-consequently to ensure a custom and curated experience, we are implementing an application process and “track based” retreat program. Each of the tracks will have an accompanying class schedule, movement option, and overall purpose.

Once you fill out your application you will be placed in one of the two specially developed tracks. These tracks have been designed to address the needs you designate as important.

### What you can expect

  • All inclusive day retreat experience
  • Intentional guided workshops
  • Group Outdoor Activities
  • Early morning mindful movement sessions
  • Relaxing Sound Bowl Experience
  • Catered Lunch (Vegan/Vegetarian/Gluten Free available)
  • Complimentary Beverages
  • Swag bag from our sponsors

### Retreat Cost:

Early Bird pricing:
$199/per person
(apply by September 1st)

Regular pricing:
$249/per person
