This is for mothers and daughters who want to have fun together and build a deeper bond and understanding of each other. This is a place where communication, respect and relationships can flourish in a positive uplifting environment.
You will be led through mental and physical exercises and activities which will leave you laughing, questioning, relating and bonding with each other.
With a big focus on positive psychology you will further develop your understanding of your personal and mother/child relationship strengths and weaknesses while discovering ways to develop for the future.
As a mother you will get the opportunity to go back into your childhood/teen years and find the relationship between your personal experiences and your fears for your daughter. You will be encourage to reflect on your observed strengths of your daughter and your hopes and desires for her future. You will have the opportunity to understand more her perceived strengths and where she needs uplifting and her hopes for the future.
As a daughter you will have the opportunity to reflect on the strengths of your mother and develop a deeper understanding of her experience at your age to encourage an appreciation and understanding of her attitudes, ways of coping and her rules.
This is a retreat where you are accepted, your values appreciated and where there is no judgement. We will learn that there is no 'right' way to be a mother and no 'right' way to be a daughter and we will try and find a way to be the best mother and daughter combo that WE can be based on who we each are. This weekend is about self discovery and the discovery of team strengths that need to be encouraged and of areas that need to be developed.
Whether you have an almost 'perfect' relationship or whether you have challenges that you face daily we will attempt to break down walls of misunderstanding and build castles from your foundation.
Next Weekend May 19-21, 2017 (kids age 12+)
