We are excited to bring you a Mother Daughter Rite of Passage Retreat that is based on years of research and designed to give your daughter the opportunity to step into young adulthood with confidence.
This life-changing experience gives your daughter the space to be celebrated for who she is, and in the process allows you to navigate the required shift in your mother-daughter relationship through connected and authentic communication.
We know that when she is met where she’s at and has the opportunity to express, be seen, and be heard, transformation is possible.
We have created this retreat for your daughter, to support her as she crosses the threshold from girl to woman.

The gift of time with my daughter was priceless."
"The retreat was soul strengthening on the deepest level. The supportive and inclusive environment and space it created is on a level impossible to explain. I felt held, supported, encouraged, appropriately challenged, and also celebrated. My daughter was so lovingly held, nurtured, and proudly given wings to fly. My time has been beyond incredible and I am truly grateful for the opportunities , growth, knowledge, friendship, and support provided. An absolute joy!"
“I feel absolutely blessed to have had the incredible opportunity to have had this experience with my daughter. It was such a warm, supportive, and inclusive retreat. I feel my daughter grew and was appropriately challenged to grow. I absolutely loved being part of the amazing women collective.”
"I found the experience rather intriguing and I really didn't know what to expect. I loved how open everyone was and I think this is a great opportunity for mothers and daughters (even if not related) to be real and connect."
