About the event

Event Description from Movement Emperess:

Waco TX is such a wholesome space harnessing a pure foundation of southern hospitality, community healing, and intuitively led connections. I'm grateful to have aligned with Providencia Urban Retreat Center to hold space for melanated mamas in Waco TX with a reflection of cultural unity, growth, and healing.  

Join us for a rising or evening of movement healing for melanated mamas this Juneteenth weekend! To honor the liberation of melanated mamas, Providencia Urban Retreat is partnering with, Movement Empress to share an intentional guided meditation for mothers to practice outdoor grounding, affirmations, and movement for the soul.

Open to all mothers and young children, we have an inclusive experience of play and stress reduction for both mama and child (the attendance of little ones is not required to attend, but are welcome to join).

As we approach Juneteenth weekend we take advantage of the marked day of liberation for the melanated beings (in "Texas"). However, as humans, no matter our race, one would imagine that healing is a space of equality and that all are welcome to practice and access spaces offering healing without bias in representation and resonance of cultural backgrounds. Movement as a healing modality has been practiced for centuries with roots and rituals of life, death, celebration, and stress reduction. Healing is most achievable when we feel connected, safe, and heard beyond the words we speak.

This experience will take place in a private bountifully green outdoor retreat space in Central Waco. Please prepare by bringing plenty of water to stay hydrated, a yoga mat, and any additional accessories you may need to make yourself feel most comfortable in the elements of nature. (Example: Face Towel, Hand Fan, Sun Glasses, etc.) Come with an open mind, be ready to move, and have a good time! We're enthusiastic to see you there!  Note, this event is 1 of 2 available times, choose from Early Rising or Evening. Registration reserves entry to one workshop and not both, so be sure to register for your desired time to attend or both if you wish to attend both. (RSVP is only valid for designated time.)

If you need assistance making adjustments to the suggested offering, please email for supported accommodations.
