What is your soul seeking right now?  Is it a circle of sisters who can hold your hand, your heart and your dreams?  Is it a refueling station where you can take off the Superwoman cape to replenish spiritually and emotionally?  Or perhaps, a safe space to reclaim your purpose and passion . . . or just be?

Did you know that YANASISTERS has hosted over 15 SOLD OUT in person retreats in Georgia, the Dominican Republic, and Italy since its inception in 2013? And, additionally, has hosted dozens of virtual retreats since the pandemic began in 2020?  

Retreats have always been at the heart of who we are, which is why we are excited to share that our live retreats are back!

Our 2024 REMEMBERING WHO I AM retreat will be held on August 23-25 in the North Georgia Mountains (2 hours north of Atlanta).  Want more information?  Click here for details on how you can confirm your spot.

"I never could understand when someone would say someone or something changed their life. The YANASISTERS retreat did just that for me. I am overwhelmed with how doors have started to open up, just by me redirecting my energy to always think positive and the BONUS of the entire experience is knowing that I am never alone."

"This retreat was literally life changing. I left with clarity that I have been lacking for months. I am so thankful for the experience and the women I got to meet over the weekend."

"YANA organizers orchestrate and set the stage for an amazing experience that you will never forget."

"Every woman needs to get in touch with her inner-self. Your retreat allows you to feel safe with the opportunity to explore who you are and more with other wonderful women."

IMANI MONICA MCCULLOUGH, Founder & Connection Coach

Connection Coach, Speaker and Author Imani Monica McCullough is a vibrant voice for women worldwide. Through her transformative platform, You Are Not Alone (YANA) Sisters, she teaches women to connect more deeply with God, themselves and each other.

Beyond born to lead women, Imani is called. Her entire life, from struggling with extreme shyness as a child, losing her father as a teen, surviving an emotionally turbulent divorce as a young woman, and ultimately, watching her mom lose a battle to Parkinson's Disease; gave her a distinctive, personal perspective on pain and on the power of connection to heal. Imani has always felt somehow different from the world around her but those feelings of exclusion, coupled with her life experiences, only fortified her and drew her closer to her life’s work. It was just a few weeks before her husband’s mental breakdown that God whispered in her ear that she had a story to share, which led to penning her award-winning book, When I Was Broken. Prior to publishing the inspirational novel, God nudged her to write more, this time an acclaimed self-help book, which she titled You Are Not Alone.

As therapeutic as writing was, Imani soon realized the process was about more than books. She had something to say—to share—with women whose faces she hadn’t seen, but whose souls she intuitively felt. Her story was theirs and so was her journey. She knew she wasn’t alone—that there were women somewhere, everywhere—who were just going through the motions and desperately needed more. These women were waiting for a safe space, a spiritual space, where they could connect on a deeper level, and be acknowledged and affirmed.

And so, in 2013, YANASISTERS was born.

What began as a vision has taken on a soul of its own. YANASISTERS held its first Journey to Purpose and Passion retreat in 2013 for an intimate group of 20 women. Today, YANA has become a powerful, intergenerational sister circle where thousands of women laugh, cry, live and love—together. From the mountains of Georgia to the sands of the Caribbean, YANA is a collective and conversation that has grown organically and lovingly. The movement includes over 25,000 women worldwide with live and virtual retreats, conferences and affiliate groups across the globe.

Through her books and her intimate coaching programs, Imani continues to obediently respond to her calling to serve women deeply. She has been featured in numerous national publications and digital platforms, including Ebony.com, the Atlanta Tribune, Rolling Out and the Wellness Blueprint. Imani is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin and Howard University School of Law, and holds coaching certificates from the CAPP Institute, the Institute for Social and Emotional Intelligence and Life Purpose Institute.

Imani is also the author of Bittersweet, and is currently working on her next release.
