Self-Care for Black Women in Leadership Program is expanding through a Train the Trainers retreat. We are stepping back from our regular programming to invite a group of 11 participants to learn to facilitiate our Self-Care for Black Women in Leadership content. 

Black women are reclaiming our power. We affirm that self-care is a radical act of self preservation and essential to all of our individual and collective journeys. Our vision is to support and develop you as trainers and facilitators of this content, so the movement to center the personal and collective care of Black women leaders can continue to expand ripple by ripple.

This is a six-day, in-person learning retreat, from Sunday, August 21 through Friday August 26, 2022 (*Sunday and Friday will be half-day sessions).  [Read our COVID protocols here].

You’ll experience all of the content from the program (focusing on three main areas: Mind, Body and Spirit) through the lens of a facilitator. We’ll create space to build community, learn the content, get into the facilitator’s mindset, and practice facilitation in teams.

Registration for 2022 is Closed!

Sign up for our newsletter here to receive future program updates. 


Over the course of this six-day learning retreat you’ll:

  • Be introduced to the self-care content through an immersive experience
  • Build confidence in delivering this healing modality for the communities you care for
  • Have ample opportunity to practice facilitating content with your peers
  • Gain access to facilitator and program design resources (like facilitator agendas and curriculum— for both the in-person and virtual formats of this content) as well as support from the CP team who can answer questions and give tips

As part of this program, you’ll also receive a voucher for CompassPoint’s Facilitation Skills: Creating Powerful and Purposeful Meetings training.

If you’re passionate about growing Self-Care for Black Women in a social justice organization, movement space, or in your community, we hope you’ll join us!



Sunday, August 21 through Friday August 26, 2022

Daily learning and practice sessions will be from 9am to 5pm PT, with spacious breaks, and time to connect and rest. Please note, Sunday and Friday will be half-days.

The retreat will be held in Sonoma, California and will be completely in person. For this retreat, we cannot accommodate requests to join remotely. To foster participant safety, the location of the retreat will be emailed to you upon completion of your registration. Materials, meals and lodging will be covered in your participation fee.
