UPDATE! The C.O.W.S. 10-Yr. Anniversary Yoga Retreat: Florida

Tentative Davenport, FL. location.
UPDATE (October 10, 2019). A number of C.O.W.S. listeners asked if there's a way to make the retreat more financially accessible. I was able to find a similar location in the Orlando area, that's substantially cheaper. I was able to lower the price by $200. Everyone who already paid the initial deposit, will have their final payment reduced accordingly.

The Context of White Supremacy welcomes 2020 in a focused, constructive and (hopefully) warm manner. The C.O.W.S. 10-Year Anniversary Yoga Retreat visits the Orlando, Florida area to promote plant-based meals, yoga and healthy counter-racist exchanges between black people.

When: Saturday, December 28th to Wednesday, Jan 1st.

We've tentatively located a residence approximately 35 minutes from the Orlando International Airport. The house has plenty of beds and bathrooms and outdoors space. There's a garage and street parking, and there seems to be no mud! 

We have space for a maximum of 12 people. The event is child friendly and welcome to children age 8 and older.

The investment for the retreat is $730. This includes:
  • All meals. Chef Nadirah Khalifah prepared all meals for the Virginia retreat and will be flying to Florida to cook plant-based breakfasts, lunches and dinners.
  • Lodging. Everyone will have a bed.
  • Morning and Evening yoga classes taught by Gus T. Renegade (200hr certified/ 85hr prenatal certified)
  • Counter-Racist Workshops
  • Quality contact with like-minded Victims of Racism
  • Yoga Blocks
  • Gift Bag with C.O.W.S. Retreat T-Shirt and Yoga Tune-Up Balls
This does not include:
  • Transportation
  • Travel Insurance
  • Yoga Mat
Workshops will include tutorials on how to prepare vegetables in a tasty, nutritious manner. Participants will work along side Chef Nadirah, to get a hands-on-experience with the production of vegan meals.

We'll also discuss the toil of attempting counter-racism during the so called-holidays. The retreat will offer a respite from the gift-buying and seasonal madness, where Victims of Racism can replenish and prepare for a new year.

A $380 deposit is due by October 24th. The deposit is non-refundable. The remaining $350 is due by December 8th. Payments can be submitted using paypal (https://www.paypal.me/TheCOWS), or check/money order. Please, email Gus for mailing information.

Hopefully, you'll consider concluding 2019 with a constructive counter-racist twist. Please, email (untiljusticeATgmailDOTcom) with questions or concerns.
