The power in burning the unwanted is often at the center of New Year traditions. In Ecuador, scarecrows are burned on New Year’s Eve to represent the cleansing of negativity from one’s life. In Scotland, a torch lit procession lights up the streets as fireballs are swung over heads to represent sunshine and the burning of the old. While Colombian families, put fire to objects placed in a bag that they choose to remove from their lives. At Black Enterprise’s 2015 Women of Power Summit, countless ladies will be given the opportunity to burn the unwanted from their worlds during the gala “Purpose & Pearls.â€
Taking place by the sea at the fabulous Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on March 2, the opening night affair will bring cleansing spirituality with a pearl inspired, all-white theme, marked by a candle-lit white carpet. Feted with food, song, and good spirits, women will be welcome to scribble on paper — and burn — the things they’d like to remove from their lives. Purging disempowering words in flames lit by the sea, Carla A. Harris, author of Expect to Win and the recently released second book Strategize to Win, will share her renowned pearls of wisdom to inspire, motivate, and uplift those in attendance.
“It is not about making a mistake that is an issue; it’s all about the recovery!” — Carla A. Harris
Engaging with other like-minded ladies looking to build on the warmth of a shared need to remove the unwanted and nurture oneself through new growth, experiences, and expansion – the Women of Power Summit’s Purpose & Pearls affair will begin like a New Year for women. It’ll kick off three potent days of helping positive ladies find their life’s purpose among the sea like the intertwined strands of a priceless pearl.
