Souljourns Imagined

Souljourns by Blue Zaria and Crystal McCreary Yoga are curated for women of color, with fierce love and soul, and feature several distinctive elements that guarantee an unforgettable travel adventure abroad and here the U. S.

Community – Ubuntu: I am because we are.

Souljourns with Blue Zaria and Crystal McCreary Yoga embrace a philosophy of comm-unity that emphasizes co-creation of a community culture during travel in which all women of color feel seen, supported, loved and emboldened to live their dreams. Through the intentional practice of fostering connection and allyship with other WOC, Souljourns support the cultivation of a blueprint for thriving independently and in community both abroad and back home.

Mindfulness – Mindfulness is the art of paying attention, on purpose, with kindness and curiosity.

Adventure – Each Souljourn is curated to perfection with the promise of both pleasure, rest and adventure in a culturally immersive experience that is unforgettable.

Thematic elements inspired by each unique destination ensure that every Souljourn offers a distinctively enriching opportunity to learn and step outside of one’s comfort zone, and to see one’s self more clearly against the backdrop of a new culture.

Movement – “When you pray, move your feet.” – African proverb.

Souljourns would not be complete without opportunities for sacred movement. From yoga, walks and hikes, to cultural dance and sport, Souljourns promise to connect Souljourners to their bodies in liberating and mindful ways that also enrich their experience of each destination. A variety of opportunities for moderate cardiovascular exercise included in each trip help Souljourners process stress hormones, create neuroplasticity in the brain (our capacity to learn new things and shed old, unsupportive habits), and ultimately support radiant vitality in body, mind, spirit and heart.

Service – Every Souljourner knows that she is magic.

Souljourns would not be complete without opportunities for Souljourners to share her gifts generously for the purpose of enhancing the lived experience of others, our community and our world. In so doing, we offer the ultimate spiritual practice of empathy in action: compassionate and joyful service.

Rest – Souljourns encourage women of color to take time to do absolutely nothing

so the body can rest, be nurtured and pampered through rest, and through excellent spa and personalized wellness services unique to each destination.
