SisterSpeak Online Magazine to Host 3rd Annual Black Women’s Wellness Day

Bowie, MD (February 27, 2011) – SisterSpeak Online Magazine, an award winning lifestyle e-zine for women of color slated to relaunch this summer, announces Black Women’s Wellness Day to be observed on Saturday, May 21, 2011, 11:30am-5:00pm at Largo Community Church, Mitchellville, MD.

This year’s 3rd observance marks a major milestone for Founder Lisa Peyton-Caire who was inspired by her mother’s death in 2006 to create a vehicle to promote and inspire a culture of wellness among women of color.

"My mother’s early struggle with heart disease and her untimely death opened my eyes to the numbers of Black women I’d known intimately throughout my life who had succumbed prematurely to disease and illness. This realization forced me to pull from the strength, struggle, and beauty of these women to create a pathway to life for those of us they left behind. Black Women’s Wellness Day is ultimately a celebration of life and how to live it more fully".

This year’s theme, Heal from Within, is intended to empower women to take control of their inner lives as the starting point for lifelong health and vitality. Guest speakers and workshops will offer inspiration and practical tips for overcoming physical, mental, and spiritual challenges, and will feature opportunities for active dialogue, creativity, and movement.

"We want to get women talking, thinking and acting in a spirit of healing–mind, body, and spirit. We want women to understand and embrace the truth that healing at all levels begins with us, with our thoughts, and with our willingness to act on our own behalves; to put away our hurts, fears, and unhealthy habits to create the healthy, thriving, balanced lives we want and deserve."

Black Women’s Wellness Day 2011 is an extension of SisterSpeak Online’s mission to inform, inspire, and empower Black women to create and sustain lives of boundless beauty, passion, power and purpose.
