Founder of Annual Girlfriend Getaway Retreat to Empower Black Women For the Third Year in a Row

Jacqueline Glass and women who attended her retreat

Nationwide — 59-year-old Jacqueline Glass from Harlem, New York City, founder of the annual Sistahs at the Well: The Girlfriend Getaway, is empowering women to take better care of themselves physical, mentally, emotionally, and holistically. After an early diagnosis with high blood pressure and diabetes, Jacqueline began her journey toward transformative health. She imagined a new life including spaces where African American women could learn how to really live.

Realizing how crucial the need was for African American women to have complete health and wellness outlets designed specifically for them, the retreat was created.

Her goal is to decrease the chronic disease rates by offering our virtual program, Sistah Soul Nutrition, and our yearly retreat, the Girlfriend Getaway, that provides the atmosphere to prioritize health, reset and focus.

The Girlfriend Getaway kicks off on Wednesday, October 14th to 18th 2023, and includes five days and four nights at the luxurious Bahia Principe Luxury Resort in Jamaica. The week will offer life changing health and wellness sessions facilitated by our dream team of nutritionists, fitness and wellness experts, dedicated physician and psychologist, and a host of speakers.

Daily yoga and training sessions and opportunities to explore the culture of the island will balance out the week, and an all-white party with guest DJ will add a night of flair and festivity.

Wellness Experts will share their expertise on the following topics:

• Heart and gut health
• How to incorporate healthy habits daily
• Psychological wellness
• Tips for optimal overall health
• Meditation tips
• Nutrition: What to eat, how to eat, when to eat
• Becoming the best version of yourself

Confirmed speakers include Brandi Harvey, Karli Harvey Raymond, Chef Babette, Dr. Alduan Tartt, Nurse Practitioner Jacqueline Burke will be ready to assist in your transformation. Select speakers will be available to book private sessions to explore your personal needs. Space is limited. To register, visit TheGirlfriendGetaway.com
