SIS...YOU'RE TIRED.
WE CREATED THIS RETREAT FOR YOU.

IT'S TIME TO RELAX - RELATE - RELEASE. 

THE VIBES - RETREAT PURPOSE

At Ellipsis, we know that that liberation of all of us will not happen until Black womxn are free.  The purpose of Rest Is… to embody the theories of today’s Black Feminists such as dr. yaba blay, Tricia Hersey, Sonya Renee Taylor and adrienne maree brown in stating that rest is not only resistance, but rest, for Black womxn, girls and femmes, IS revolution.  This inaugural event will offer space for us to teach, learn, model and practice how we rest in our work. Upon our return, it is our contention that we will be equipped to translate, code and decode our experiences and learnings into our professional spaces.  Like our foremothers have taught us, we must position ourselves to give from our overflow.  Rest Is…seeks to position us to do just that.  

WE'RE OFFICIALLY FULL!
