Women of color healing retreat offers Black women a vacation from White people

A Costa Rican retreat is offering women of color the chance to spend their vacation free from white people, as showcased in a new documentary by Vice News.

Andrea X, says she gave up her life in Brooklyn to create the Women of Color Healing Retreat in Puerto Viejo because she had a hard time communicating with white people in the U.S.

“I decided one day to just eliminate white people from my personal life, and ever since then my life has been way more breezy,” she told Vice.

The 10-day retreat, which was started in 2014, offers yoga, vegan food, and political education seminars. This is a vacation experience geared toward black Americans and does not allow white people.

Currently the retreat is being held at a white-owned resort, however Andrea X and her business partner have invested $100,000 to build their own black-only retreat space about 20 minutes away. Andrea X said she envisions a “safe space” free from the oppression of white people.
