Rising Women: Mother Daughter Weekend
for 11-14 year old girls & their mums
Rising Women is a Mother Daughter Weekend retreat designed to support you and your daughter as she steps into her teen years. Our aim is to offer time away for you both to connect and reflect on the many changes already happening (or on the horizon), along with supporting you both to better understand the challenges she faces in her journey to young adulthood and the shifts for mothers on their journey of matrescence.
Mother Medicine: A Rite of Passage for Mothers
A 4 day retreat in the beautiful Byron Hinterland designed to support you to explore what the journey as mother means to you, to experience deep rest and connection in circle with other mothers, sisters, elders, and discover ways to revalue and recenter your needs, your creativity, and your joy toward reclaiming your own unique journey of mothering.
Our next retreat will be in late 2023 in the Byron Hinterland, NSW, Australia

Song of the Crone: A Passage to Elderhood
More than ever our world needs the wisdom of women with the experience of passing through the maiden and mother stages, of living with uncertainty, within systems of patriarchy and systemic injustice, of surviving however difficult the journey has been. The woman who has healed, who holds her loss and grief as part of her humanity, whose ways of knowing supports other women to heal. Your crone is needed.
Your courage, your loss, your wounded heart, your aging body – your very existence is a signal fire to the women who will come after you. As women with the courage to stand in the truth of endings, to find belonging and meaning in times of uncertainty, and to live with realities and joys of aging, will light the way for those who come after us..
The world needs elder women to tend the threshold of our future.
“The Crone has been missing from our culture for so long that many women, particularly young girls, know nothing of her tutelage. Young girls in our society are not initiated by older women into womanhood with its accompanying dignity and power. Without the Crone, the task of belonging to oneself, of being a whole person, is virtually impossible.”
― Marion Woodman, Dancing in the Flames: The Dark Goddess in the Transformation of Consciousness
