Goals of Retreat
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 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 encouraged to reflect on your observed strengths and those of your daughter and your hopes and desires for her future. You will have the opportunity to understand her perceived strengths and where she needs uplifting and her hopes for the future.
As a daughter you will have the opportunity to show a new more mature side of yourself to your mum and share your aspirations for the future and who you want to become (which may not necessarily be her ;) . You will learn 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. You will find ways to move forward together in a more meaningful and respectful way by understanding the reason for her rules.
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.
Our mother/daughter retreats are geared for daughters aged 12 to 16yrs.
