UN●RU●LY /ˌənˈro͞olē/: 

A LIFE GROUNDED IN SELF LOVE, WHERE YOU STAND IN WHO YOU ARE, AND NOT THE DEFINITION OF WHAT ANYONE ELSE HAS TOLD YOU TO BE.

Welcome everyone! We are beyond excited to be able to connect intimately with each of you on this Unruly Retreat to Jamaica. Where crystal clear Caribbean waters meet white sand, we will invite you to disconnect from your everyday life and reconnect with yourself on a deeper level. 

The Unruly Retreat is all about rediscovering your power to create connection and healing. It embodies the practice of creating a safer, friendlier, kinder space where Black women can feel safe enough to let down their guards, be vulnerable, heal – and have a damn good time. 

Our goal is that by the end of these 5 days you will have gained the emotional freedom to live a more purposeful, liberated life that brings love and healing into your soul, inspiration into your mind, and connection into your heart. We cannot wait to have you with us on this journey of transformation and restoration. 

Come as you are and be accepted as you are!

Meet Your Host

SHELAH MARIE

As an author, content creator, and women’s wellness influencer, Shelah Marie has helped disrupt the idea that women should place themselves last or seek others’ approval in order to lead healthy, fulfilling lives. Shelah offers a fresh perspective on self-care and creativity, while answering the call for a greater, more mindful connection among women. Best known for The Curvy, Curly, Conscious movement as well as her new book, Positive You: A Personal Growth Journal for Women, Shelah excels at meeting people exactly where they are, customizing each of her workshops and retreats to accommodate the distinct needs of her participants and help them overcome barriers in advocating for themselves and their physical and mental wellness.

Prior to founding Curvy, Curly, Conscious, Shelah partnered with the United Nations and other humanitarian organizations to bring her inaugural effort, the Sustainable Theater Workshop, to students around the world, including Hohenfels, Germany, Dakar, Senegal and Sen Rafayèl, Haiti. The Sustainable Theater Workshop used playwriting, poetry, and acting techniques to empower differently abled children and youths impacted by poverty, to share their personal narratives in their own way, and to see the value in learning about themselves and others. The Sustainable Theater Workshop used playwriting, poetry, and acting techniques to empower differently abled children and youths impacted by poverty, to share their personal narratives in their own way, and to see the value in learning about themselves and others.
