Description

Would you like to DISCOVER what it means to be spiritually WELL? Are you READY for a new level in your spiritual journey? Are you ready to IGNITE the goddess within?

The Black Women's Wellness Conference was established in 2016 as an annual wellness event designed to promote mental health and wellbeing in Black women. Each year our themes focus on an aspect of wellness that informs, inspires, and ignites Black women to take their wellness to the next level. The theme for the 3rd Annual Black Women's Wellness Conference is "Reconnecting our Spirits: Moving from Religion to Relationship" where the focus will be spiritual wellness! For some Black women, their faith allows them to cope with life's challenges and is a source of meaning and purpose. For others, "the church" is a source of trauma, oppression, and shame. We will be unpacking this delicate topic and are excited to invite speakers to help us explore what it means for us to be well spiritually! You definitely don't want to this event. This is a judgement free zone where we are trying to heal, grow, and be well TOGETHER! So an open mind and heart are REQUIRED!

This year's programming will include panels and education sessions on:

  • The "Black Church" and Mental Health

  • Spirituality and/or Religion as Healing/Coping

  • Spirituality and/or Religion as Trauma/Oppression

  • Alternative Spiritual Practices (i.e., Energy Work, Meditation, Mindfulness)

  • Traditional African Spirituality

So, if you are ready to be informed, inspired, and ignited to take your spiritual wellness to the next level, register now for the 3rd Annual Black Women's Wellness Conference! General registration includes: conference admission, conference booklet, lunch and snacks, and access to Wellness Lane vendors! Immediately following the conference, stick around for a networking reception with conference founder and producer Dr. Tammy Lewis Wilborn, speakers, and other conference guests in the beautiful lobby of the New Orleans Jazz Market. Be sure to join the official Facebook community: "Black Women's Wellness Conference 2019" to receive weekly inspiration and stay up-to-date on conference updates! Check back with this site often for conference updates on speakers, registration scholarships, and more!
