"Before I came here, I was very stressed. I'm in a place in my life where I need a serious breakthrough and transformation. Coming here has not only given me hope again for my future but also reminded me of who I am as a person.

— Ciji, Los Angeles

"Enlightening conversations and the s'mores night, everything was awesome!"

— Daryl, Los Angeles

"At first, I was skeptical about how Encounter would benefit me. But I've gotten so much more out of it. I feel spiritually renewed, I feel I have the capability to tackle what I need to tackle. My favorite part of this weekend was the campfire, all of these black people, rich minds, just talking about life. We were having so much fun, laughing, but it also got really deep."

— Aspen, Los Angeles

"I built some amazing relationships, I  feel like I have twenty new friends. I learned how to meditate, I did yoga, learned about myself. I feel centered, calm and in control. I've had so many laughs, so many smiles. Encounter was exactly what I needed and I'm so grateful I was able to be here. I don't think I'll ever be able to miss Encounter again, I have to be back here."

— Brittany, New York City

“This shi* is for us.”
