Curvy, Curly, Conscious May 2016
Written by: Lauren Alyssa The Gem Within
Led by inspirational entrepreneurs, Shelah, Racheal, and Aisha: The Curvy, Curly, Conscious(CCC) mission came to life.
On May 1st 2016, approximately one hundred women took over the Epicenter for Personal Growth and Transformation: The Sacred Space of Miami, in the city's renowned Wynwood district, for an afternoon of women's empowerment. CCC's much anticipated "Holistic Afternoon of Reigniting Self-love" arrived and so did a stream of enthusiastic women of all ages. Eager for a creative, safe, and fun environment to come together, learn, share, and actively participate in a journey of self-discovery, the women were ignited and ready. The CCC event was not your average convention nor your average women’s empowerment affair, it was an opportunity for women to experience life-changing moments that aimed to shift their outlook on the inner-self and, ultimately, life.
May 1st, 2016 was just a day of that: Women filling themselves with knowledge, friendship, confidence and taking the time to practice self-love, self discovery, self-investment, and meditation, awesome!
The Goal: For everyone to leave feeling empowered, uplifted, and ready to channel their inner dopeness.
The CCC ladies lead an open interactive discussion, with 6 influential and powerful women, addressing topics of love, relationships, mental health, skincare, and natural hair tips. The panel featured: Nikia Phoenix, a Model, writer, and visionary; Coach Danie Spikes, a University of Miami trained life coach with a passion for revolutionizing relationships; Barbara, the creator of Jacq’s Organics, an organic skin care line; Yoga Racheal, an Urban Yogi with a passion to serve and inspire others; Aisha Thalia, a vegan advocate and bikini guru with a passion for educating society about community issues, and the Curvy Curly Conscious Goddess, Meditation Enthusiast, and Actress, Shelah Marie.
