ABOUT PURPOSED FOR EXCELLENCE
Purposed for Excellence is a curated experience crafted to build communities of color by creating a safe space to have necessary and meaningful conversations. Participants will explore purpose, identify blockages, create strategies, and leave with a renewed energy to go forth in excellence! Each moment of the retreat is meant to empower the excellence already within and unite the participants on this common journey of living in purpose. Both men and woman are invited into the conversation because to grow as a community, we must work together as a community.
THE LUXURY OF SPACE & TIME
We rented out the entire mansion just for you. Each room uniquely crafted to provide the comfort of home with a flare of elegance. You are encouraged to make this your home away from home for 4 days. Allow yourself to relax and unwind, be pampered, and embrace the mindset of luxury.
Each meal is cooked with love by a personal chef. The chef skillfully crafts dishes that look great and taste even better. You can taste the love in each bite. From the hearty breakfast sourced with fresh ingredients primarily from nearby farms to three course dinner, you will not be disappointed.
Get lost in the space. Take a walk around the grounds and relax on a swing set. Take a dip in the pool. Go for a morning run. Play a round of tennis or basketball. Breathe in fresh air and serenity.
THE LUXURY OF SPIRIT: TRANSFORMING THE MIND, HEART, AND HANDS
The retreat is designed to immerse you in a physical space of excellence, while providing you experiences to spark your thinking. The mind is a powerful tool for you to create the world you see. It is said that “luxury is a state of mind.” You must first believe in excellence, for it to manifest.
Healing and growth start from within so the heart’s work involves recognizing your feelings, engaging in self care and reflection on your why. In addition to the curated activities, there will be multiple spaces that participants can access to take a personal break such as the sauna, workout facility, swimming pool, and courtyards. When we feel good, the energy that we create in the world is good.
The hands involves reaching back into the community and building the connections necessary for the entire village to strive. There are multiple opportunities to network built into the schedule such as the daily social hour, poolside reception, Champagne n S’moores BBQ, Garden Luncheon, and the Ebony Excellence Cocktail Hour and Banquet. Ultimately, our actions speak and we get to choose to walk in purpose and act in excellence.
Throughout the weekend, the heart of the program is the seven workshops which are conversational and interactive. They are geared at helping participants embrace the mind, heart, hand model while diving into their purpose.
