What is The Antidote?
A Different Kind of Retreat
The Antidote brings together women of color in a space designed for us to show up fully, authentically, and ready to invest in ourselves. Together, we will build the understanding, nuance, and savvy to manage the challenges that are unique to women of color. We will find new ways to address the challenges you can address and create a reality in which you can see yourself and be seen.
One retreat will not change a white supremacist, patriarchal world, but it can change your agency within it.
Everything we offer at The Antidote is designed to help each of us take off our cultural armor and see ourselves authentically. Yes, you will do some deep, serious, and sometimes challenging inner work. It may feel refreshing, exhausting, or both. Our intention is not to offer a “one and done” solution to patriarchy and white supremacy, but to help you see it clearly and make your choices living in it.
