BEYOND CELEBRATING THE ART OF EXCELLENCE & EMPOWERMENT: #IMARA, FOREVER

#IMARA, FOREVER

POWER. PERSISTENCE. PRESENCE. IMARA was truly life changing. In every sense of the way… also in more ways than we had imagined. Firstly, a gazillion thanks to all of those who supported and /or attended. Tori and I, truly thank you from the depths of our souls. You made IMARA magical!

LUNCHEONS & PANEL DISCUSSIONS

This was beyond a celebration of excellence & empowerment….When we first started on the journey to create this experience, little did we know we too, also needed exactly what it was that we were building. We worked tirelessly, for months to bring this to fruition. Pushed almost beyond our limits at times, to what almost seemed like our behest. But we persisted and kept the faith. Even though everything we create starts with us, our tenacity and dedication resides in the belief that what we do is so much greater than us. Its FOR US, BY US! (Thanks FUBU for the plug).

EPIC MOMENTS @ YSL MUSEUM & GARDENS IN MARRAKECH

Nevertheless, this was the retreat to end all retreats! Or should I say rather, the retreat to begin all retreats?! It was that AMAZING! Literally. These women, from speakers, staff to attendees… most of whom strangers to each other, showed up and poured so much into each other. We fed each others souls at IMARA. Eased each others hearts, and provoked each other’s minds, in the most dynamic, powerful and genuinely caring ways possible. Mass attunement. The likes of which I have never seen or experienced before, ever. At least not to this magnitude. And it was AWESOME. TRULY. We recognized the divine in one another and also the struggle. All of which was met with nothing but compassion, empathy and care. This retreat made us realize that we are indeed a special tribe.

NIGHTLY INTIMATE DINNERS & TALKS

This was also beyond #blackgirlmagic, and orbited in to a whole other realm; that can only be summed up in the hashag: #IMARA. For 7 days we converged, communed, created, collaborated, shared parts of ourselves and lives with each other, with no agenda other than to just be of service to the next woman. To possibly help her grow and live her best life, and to my knowledge: it worked! Everyone came with their armor removed, their hearts and minds open and the magic began to flow. The immediate vibe, and feedback was incredibly heartfelt and overwhelmingly positively filled with so much love. Love for self, and for others. No agendas, just sheer genuine LOVE. The real kind that shows up when you leave all your armor and expectations at the door… and it was insanely beautiful.

A DIFFERENT TYPE OF FOOD FOR THE SOUL

MOMENTS @JNAN AMAR POLO CLUB & RESORT

This may have been the inaugural launch, so we do not hope to recreate it; but merely build on it. Amplify the energetic vibration of IMARA. We are very much looking forward to the next one, and have already begun working on what that will be. It is our hope that you will join us. Open heart, open mind, bring your magic, and leave your armor at the door… become part of our tribe and let’s celebrate the art of excellence and empowerment together. #IMARAFOREVER!

EXCELLENCE, EMPOWERMENT, UNITY. #TRIBE
