bAw Event: H.E.R. Retreat 2018

Hey fam!


Today’s post is a bit different. It’s more of an exciting announcement for our ladies in Johannesburg (and those willing to come down)!


bAw is proud to present the sequel to the H.E.R. (Healing, Exhaling, Reflecting) Hike — H.E.R. Retreat.

Who is the H.E.R. Retreat for?


  • For the woman who has reached a stage in her life where she’s tired of operating on autopilot and consistently feeling like she’s hitting walls no matter how much she tries.


  • For the woman who is on a journey of self-awareness and just becoming a better version of herself, and would like practical tools and support as she walks this path.


  • For the woman who desires to be around more like-minded women and to grow healthier in her mind and spirit, in an environment that fosters faith, sisterhood, intentionality, freedom and love in Christ.


  • For the woman who would like to take stock of her 2018 while preparing herself mentally, emotionally, and spiritually for her 2019 and beyond.


  • For the woman who would like an opportunity to unwind, relax in nature and engage in meaningful activities and exercises.
