Soulfood Sessions was just what I needed in my life at that moment. My soul was fed positive energy and motivation, as well as acknowledgment of my weaknesses. I enjoyed every single moment of it.

This past weekend I had to be vulnerable. I had to let my walls down, which is not always easy. I walked into Niya B. Matthews Soulfood Sessions with Niya Retreat with not much expectations - just a weekend to hop on a plane to Atlanta and getaway. But it became one of the most remarkable, therapeutic and 'soul-shaking' experience. The calmness of the soul is important. I cried, I laughed, I opened up, met and networked with some amazing women.
Thank you Niya for using your purpose to touch the lives of others. What a great weekend it was to Restore, Refresh and Refocus. We all go through struggles and we all handle them differently. But its in those times, we find who we are and who we want to be. Growing, Glowing and God! Beauty for Ashes!

The Soulfood Sessions with Niya experience has changed "MY LIFE" This was the best sister bonding weekend I ever had. This past weekend introduced me to Niya and I was so excited. I followed Niya on Instagram and Facebook and love her quotes, everything about her. Her spirit is contagious and refreshing. I was introduced to some amazing women, that I now consider family. The activities we participated in were uplifting, impactful and Godly influenced. The meals were awesome, chef April (Margaret)put her heart and soul in every meal and you could taste it in every bite. Upon going to the retreat I was searching for bonding and connection because I felt I was moving in different directions from my friends and I couldn't understand why. The retreat helped me with those convictions and gave me understanding as to how to move forward. I left there a different woman, on cloud nine, so relaxed and ready to take on "The World". it made me look at life differently through clearer eyes. I will say this, that I hope that Niya can do a retreat reunion for the spring retreat after a year to see where we are and for us to reconnect because we came in as strangers but left as sisters. I think every woman should experience this because it will change their life.

When I heard about the Soulfood Sessions with Niya retreat, I signed up without hesitation. My tank was almost depleted, and I had been looking for a place to retreat with other like-minded women and reset. I arrived at the retreat carrying anger, resentment, mistrust, hurt, procrastination, doubt, fear and just an overall feeling of being stuck. I enjoyed a weekend of spiritual activities, laughter, fun, and bonding. I left the retreat with more joy, forgiveness, determination, assurance, and a sense that I can and will overcome all obstacles I face. The experience is allowing me to release, recharge, and reset my life! And “You Can” too! SSWN Spring ‘18 .
