Peace and Blessings! I'm Shani Banks and I'll be your retreat leader for the 2023 Women's MindBody Retreat! I’m a Black, Muslim, mental health therapist, yoga teacher, and meditation teacher. I focus on the mind/body/spirit connection, incorporating somatic work and anti-oppressive counseling techniques to obtain holistic mental well-being. The word "shanti" is Sanskrit for "inner peace", I invite you to come to find Shanti with Shani this December!
