About The Retreat
AN INTERGENERATIONAL WELLNESS RETREAT, PERIOD.
It is well known that cultural stigmas and lack of menstrual education can cause fear and shame for girls beginning their menstrual journey at menarche (occurrence of the first period). Furthermore, there are intergenerational households where parents and older relatives dealt with period stigma and experienced reproductive health conditions in silence. We understand how difficult it can be for parents/guardians to have conversations about reproductive health and support their daughter if they were never given the opportunity to understand & embrace their own menstrual flow. Through a two-generation (2Gen) approach, we are prioritizing the social and emotional wellbeing of parents and children so they can thrive.
We envision a world where talking about menstruation will no longer be taboo!
Love Your Menses’ Menstrual Wellness Retreat is a safe and healing space for girls and their mothers/guardians to rest, engage in meaningful dialogue about reproductive health, share period stories, build sisterhood, prioritize their wellness, and get access to the resources they need to
flow through life, unapologetically!
This retreat includes:
Menstrual Health Workshops
Cultural and Wellness Activities
Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner
& MUCH MORE!
We appreciate the funding we received from the Black Girl Freedom Fund and the Boston Women's Fund which supported our 2022 retreat.
The value of our U.S-based retreats is $850 and international retreats is $2,500 per person which includes lodging, food, activities, giveaway items, and transportation. Reproductive health injustices, trauma, and other factors have had a significant impact on adolescents' and adults' mental health. Our menstrual wellness retreat creates an intergenerational space for individuals to prioritize their mental health, reproductive health, and social wellness.
As a sponsor, your contribution will provide opportunities for underserved Black and Brown girls and women to build sisterhood, learn about menstrual health, and prioritize their wellness.
All contributions will go towards expenses so the retreat can remain fully paid or low cost to participants.
