Her Iwa Pele Retreats
Destination: Jamaica
October | 18-21, 2019


I am thrilled to welcome you as a special guest of Global Ase’s newest luxury initiative, Her Iwa Pele retreats focused on leadership and wellness for women. During October 18-21, 2019, we will retreat in Jamaica, the land where spirituality, culture, music, and nature combine to make a strong fusion of renewal.

For the past 25 years, I have curated and facilitated cultural programs and immersions throughout Africa and the Diaspora.  I am delighted to share all my years of experience and relationships with women during our boutique luxury retreats.

Her Iwa Pele retreats are rooted in a combination of mindful leadership, indigenous values, and movement medicine. Our offerings include personalized experiences and expert wellness practitioners of your choice.

Iwa Pele, means of good character from the West African Yoruba language of Nigeria and is more than a definition, it’s a restorative concept. Good character is a complex notion; knowing what is good, for who and when – is how we can achieve our personal and collective goals.

We look forward to scheduling our first touch point, a video interview. After our meeting, we will develop your customized restorative package, and then, upon arrival, we’ll co-design and your mindful leadership practice.

At Her Iwa Pele, we take a holistic approach to feminine empowerment in our lives, using self-love as the pathway to achieving overall success. We have designed offerings for leaders from all walks of life. Whether an acting or aspiring executive, entrepreneur, parent, activist, teacher, or simply seeking balance and direction on the next steps in your life, you are welcome.

We look forward to receiving your application.

Why a Woman’s Leadership Wellness Retreat?

Well-being and how we achieve and maintain it should be the basis of our life goals. Learning to balance the different demands along with having enjoyable lives that grow and flourish in spite of all the messages we navigate is key to living our best life.

In my work, I have found that executives and managers often face lifestyle choices, whether in the public eye or at the head of institutions.

Once we are still, we begin to see that we need to develop a restorative practice that can work in all aspects of our lives, at home and work.

At Her Iwa Pele, we have designed offerings specifically for leaders from all walks of life who are ready to align their mind, body, and spirit with their purpose on this journey of life. Our success and wellness beg

in with our state of being. Defining what is good for each of us is the key to achieving personal success.

Our intentions often start out great, however, it’s our super busy lives, overwhelming responsibilities, and desire to succeed that throws us off track. Next thing we know, we are back on the treadmill, reacting to an overflowing plate – expressing undesirable actions that reinforce an unhealthy norm to keep up.

At Her Iwa Pele, we recognize we all need to develop a restorative practice where we are awake enough to intentionally take the controls for our journey.

Our Immersion Wellness Retreats: Healing, Balance & New Tools

This exclusive wellness training has been created for driven female leaders.  Uniquely crafted as a dual learning and wellness environment, you will not only learn new concepts, but you’ll do the work along with your senior coach, Kwayera Archer.

How much more could we achieve if there was the opportunity to think more about personal balance? And, examine all of the external messages that shape our thoughts as women on a daily basis about work, femininity, image, conduct, communication and more.  We’ll explore diverse modalities driven by your personal and professional wellness + balance goals.    Our retreats are personalized to meet you where you are.

We’ll affirm actions and share new tools that cultivate a clear mind, a strong body, prosperous spirit, and inspire you to evolve to greater heights. We learn and share wellness practices and through this work cultivate richer understandings of what it means to be healthy.

When joining our all-inclusive retreats, you’ll receive one-on-one as well as group sessions.  Gentle, guided introductions and techniques to propel you to new heights. All sessions use a framework that inspires strong conversational exchange, personally reflective and collective learning.

Sessions are intentionally limited in size to ensure a personalized experience.
