Amber Lee Forrester
Empowerment Coach, Motivational Speaker, Positive Content Creator and Event Producer
Amber produced and hosted over 50 women of color at the Glow Up Wellness Retreat to Grenada with wellness group, OMNoire in October 2017. One of her most cherished memories from the retreat was witnessing the transparency, lack of judgement and sisterhood amongst the women in attendance. She is thrilled to bring another beautiful group of women together for the Vibrate Higher Retreat.
Amber’s warm and social personality provide her with a special way of creating safe spaces for women to engage, share and learn. Her mission is to inspire purpose, positivity, awareness and growth by connecting women and encouraging them fully express their soul’s potential and live life to the fullest. Amber holds a certification in applied positive psychology. She will lead a master class entitled “Flourish” focusing on how to create optimal well-being in our minds, bodies, souls and relationships.
Author, Minister, Columnist, Trainer, and Founding Pastor of Transforming Love Community
Rev, as we call her, has a mission and a passion to create forums and venues that speak to a person’s ability to transform their lives. She believes this empowerment begins with the transformation of the mind. She travels the U.S. teaching people that they have a purpose in life and once they understand who they really are and principles that govern the universe, nobody and nothing can stop them from succeeding. Rev will lead us through experiential work that will allow us to go deep within, discover what needs to be healed and remove that which blocks us from remembering who we truly are.
