Let us bring the Reign x Shine retreat experience to you, in the comfort of your home. Our virtual retreat allows you to prioritise your physical and mental well-being, whilst connecting with like-minded black women, which we think is more important than ever right now.


In booking your space, you will also be donating to two amazing not-for-profit organisations doing incredible work within the black community. We will be sharing all profits between Black Minds Matter UK and Exist Loudly Fund. Check out what two of the guests from our last virtual retreat had to say. 

'This weekend was exactly what I needed! Thank you Reign x Shine for reuniting me with some of my favourite women and for introducing me to some fabulous new ones. I did wonder if the format would work online but it is testament to Maya and Trudie that this online retreat was just as perfect as the IRL ones.'

'Appreciation post for these two incredible, beautiful inside-and-out women who organised yet another incredible weekend retreat, this time virtually... Thank you for always creating the most beautiful, soul-filling spaces.'
