Body, Soul & Spirit has gained an enviable reputation as a platform for transforming lives, fortifying the dignity of womanhood and raising change agents. BSS, as it is fondly called, is an annual women’s event pioneered in 2007, as a platform for energising, inspiring and empowering women to aspire for greatness. The event affords women an opportunity to take time out of their busy schedule to gain the focus, insights and empowerment needed to live maximally and become all that God has ordained to be.
Women have the honour of fulfilling many roles, which usually translates into an unending schedule. This can get overwhelming, as they are submerged in the grind of everyday demands, which could make it rather daunting to dream, sharpen their edge or pursue the fulfillment of their dreams. This could lead to settling for less, merely existing or settling into a state of mediocrity and despondence. Hence, Body, Soul & Spirit provides an avenue for projecting God’s counsel for women, countering negative conditioning and empowering women to demand more from life, while maximally fulfilling their purpose.
The event usually features activities packaged to provide physical, mental, spiritual and emotional reinvigoration and empowerment for participants. There have been a truly overwhelming influx of positive commendations and testimonies of changed lives.
One of many astounding testimonies is of a woman, who had spent 13 years taking care of her autistic child. She seemingly had lost the verve or desire to live for more. She had become immersed in the day to day demands of taking care of her sick child, that it felt as if she merely existed. Life had lost its colour for her. Then, she attended an edition of Body, Soul & Spirit and the desire to live maximally was stirred in her spirit. She made up her mind that she would not be confined by her problems to live a life of mediocrity. She started a business and began to live a fuller life.
At Body, Soul & Spirit, women by the power of God are set at liberty to break free from limitations, delays and mediocrity. Testimonies of fruitfulness, fulfillment of marital destiny, financial breakthrough, career upliftment, etc. abounds.
Highlights of the event include- enlightening presentations, powerful prayer sessions, discussion/talk forums, makeover sessions, comedy, games, spirit lifting worship, impactful ministrations, amongst others.
Body, Soul & Spirit is usually an exciting time out for women, as it affords them an opportunity to unwind, network, get pampered and inspired. BSS is always highly anticipated by women from all over the country, and it has consistently witnessed an ever increasing attendance, from 150 women at inception to presently over 2,500 women. The event attracts women from all cadres and walks of life- homemakers, entrepreneurs, civil servants, professionals, executives, etc.
The event has previously been held only in Lagos, but due to the influx of women from all over the country and the event’s success rate, we have begun to spread its reach to other locations within and outside the country. Body, Soul & Spirit Ibadan was held in March 2014, while there are plans to also hold the event in Calabar and Abuja .
We believe hosting Body, Soul & Spirit in Calabar, would duly provide a platform for furthering empowering women resident in Calabar to dare the limits and aspire for greatness.
