I AM THE MOUNTAIN

Retreats

Soul Searching Experiences that Unify your Courage and Inner Strength for a Transformed Life

WITH DR. AJA D. KING

The mountains in our lives are not obstacles, but rather, mirrors that reflect our strength, courage, and determination. ~ Dr. Aja King, LPCC

If you were raised to believe that "You can rest when you die," you're not alone. This dismissive attitude towards fatigue and exhaustion has caused BIPOC leaders to get caught in the vicious cycle of stress, anxiety, and burnout.


This mindset has led BIPOC leaders to face even more challenges, including marginalization, microaggressions, and systematic racism.

 

If you are BIPOC leader who feels like you can never rest, you may also be experiencing:

 

  • Feelings of fatigue, but you are too afraid to address your overall wellness and take breaks.

  • Frustration due to a plateaued career and feeling like an “imposter”.

  • Beliefs that your life’s path is being derailed by distractions and lack of support.

  • Discouraged with the lack of mentorship and connections with other BIPOC professionals.

  • Struggles within your family/intimate relationships because of leadership endeavors.

You do not have to wait to rest.

You deserve to take care of yourself and to enjoy your life. It's time to take a break.

IMAGINE...

  • Imagine a soul searching experience that guides through a deep dive into your mind, will and emotions.

  • Imagine a weekend where you are surrounded by other BIPOC professionals who understand your experiences and challenges.

  • Imagine feeling supported and empowered as you learn from experts and develop the skills and mindset you need to succeed.

  • Imagine leaving the retreat with a clear vision for your future and the confidence to achieve it.

  • Imagine breaking through plateaus to achieve your full potential.

  • Imagine walking in a confidence that allows you to shine out of the ashes of your old self and emerge as your divine self.

The I Am The Mountain retreat is designed specifically for BIPOC leaders who need a safe space to grow, heal, and connect. The retreat is inspired by the metaphor of a mountain, which represents strength, courage, and determination. The rewards of the retreats arrive when guests tap into their inner resiliency and sense of curiosity to overcome the challenges they face in their work and interpersonal lives.

Dr. Aja King is an expert Counseling Psychologist who has spent her career dedicated to healing individuals, families, and communities. She believes that the greatest opportunities for growth are when we connect with our true identities, and walk in our authentic light.

What they are saying!

I left after the session feeling relaxed and less stressed. It was beneficial with helping me to better cope with some life stressors. I especially loved the calming environment. I could definitely benefit from continued sessions and will recommend to family and friends.

The service that I received through Brave Defiance was absolutely wonderful for all of us(family)! My providers offered me everything I could have desired. The location was perfect! I hope you have a permanent location for the services real soon.

BRENDA HASSAN

Dr. King was organized and communicated well with me as a practitioner for this event. The space was beautiful and everyone was greeted with warmth and professionalism. As a practitioner in the healing arts, it was an excellent opportunity to serve folks who look like me and also have the space between sessions to connect and get to know everyone. I highly recommend any event Dr. King organizes and will be involved and support whenever possibly can.
