The Essence of a Goddess study abroad program in Brazil will immerse young, talented, and gifted “sisters” between the ages of 12 and 24 in the traditions preserved by the Sisterhood of the Boa Morte. Through an exploration of art, culture, and education, these young women will utilize creativity, collaboration, and compassion to develop a “You’re So Special” back to school Edu~Concert for their family and extended family members, communities, and supporters.
Approximately thirty young women from five non-profit organizations (Girls For A Change/Camp Diva, Culture 4 My Kids/Taaluma, Armstrong Leadership Program, Open High School and The Conciliation Project) in Richmond, Virginia will participate in the Essence of a Goddess program, which will be a transformative cross cultural voyage held in Brazil from August 6–20, 2015. Each participant will experience the transformative nature of drumming, dance, and drama culminating in a creative project: A Theatrical Collaboration for Public Dialogue.
Our study abroad program is a cross-cultural journey, a dynamic collaboration between the African American and Afro-Brazilian community, including educators, artists, social scientists, community organizers, government officials, youth leaders, and healing practitioners. We invite you to participate in this rich, cultural, transformative, and essential healing!
