1-Night Retreat for Black Women: “I Found God In Myself”

November 27, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - November 28, 2021 @ 3:00 pm


Directed by Lauren Morton


God is expansive and abundant. We are not designed to shrink or be less of ourselves. God wants us to be more.  In order to be more, from wearing our capes to building communities, we have to meet the God within ourselves. Join “Bee At Peace” for a one-night retreat to honor the God that resides within and loves us fiercely.

Your event begins on Saturday, November 27 with check in at 3pm. The retreat concludes on Sunday, November 28 at 3pm. Upon registration for this event, you will receive a confirmation email from Ignatius House Jesuit Retreat Center. Another email will be sent to you in advance of the retreat with final details to know ahead of your arrival.


This retreat is limited to 22 participants.  The cost is $148 which covers costs for a private room & bath for each guest, and all meals.  Pay this amount or contribute more to help someone in hardship attend. 


Lauren Morton is the creator of Bee at Peace. At the age of 4, Lauren announced to her mother in Kroger, “I am going to be a ‘Kroger check-out girl’ because they get to scan groceries.” She said, “Lauren, you can be anything you want to be. Just be the best at it.” As Lauren looks back on her journey thus far, she says, “Some people may not have thought I was the best. What is important to me, I am at my best by always finding my truth in any situation.” Lauren graduated from Emory University and The George Washington University (B.A. in Sociology and Master of Health Administration, respectively), worked in hospital management, and today is an innovative, grassroots strategic and organizational team-builder. “I was born into a family of strong Black women. Who am I? A multi-comma woman where everything behind the comma brings me joy.”
