"I had forgotten myself! I truly enjoyed the retreat. It gave me time to connect with myself. Thank you So much Dr. Alston for inspiring the spirit of Sankofa. Which translates "It is not wrong to go back for that which you have forgotten." I needed to identify, call on, and open up the different aspects of my being or self. Thank you for giving me some time to do that in an open and supportive environment. You are truly a blessing to us all."
