Seminars are not an aspect of Essence Fest our circle frequents. Everyone is entitled to enjoy their time however desired. Our preference has been to utilize Essence Fest as a vacation that provides the opportunity to escape “real life” and just have an extremely enjoyable time. However, for those that want intellectual balance in their vacations the seminars are an excellent way to learn from our modern day “talented tenth”. The seminars leaders are usually a who’s who in a various areas of expertise. The seminars cover a wide range of topics so for those looking to have their intellectual juices stimulated the seminars will certainly provide a quality avenue.
