  • You are ready for a deeper, more meaningful relationship with your mother/daughter(s).
  • You can’t remember the last time you did something just for YOU!!!
  • You feel like your daughter still needs you, but you are afraid of being too pushy.
  • You want to talk to your mom about things that are meaningful to you.
  • You want to better listen to each other.
  • There are so many distractions and demands that you have no time to be still and mindful of the present moment.
  • You are exhausted from your “to-do” list and are deeply craving rest and rejuvenation.
  • You are open to trying new things and discovering more joy in everyday life.
  • Since your daughter has had children, your relationship has become more distant and you miss spending time with each other.
  • You are excited about experiencing the adventure and energy of Southern France!
  • You want to invest in meaningful experiences and the relationships that matter most.

Testimonials:“I am at ease with myself and comfortable at my life’s journey point and this workshop made me remember and realize this. I enjoyed the range of life phases–widening perspective. I learned and learned about myself and that was my intention.”

“I enjoyed the workshop and learned a lot. It was interesting to hear about the variety of experiences from all the mothers, and I enjoyed the presentation and the topics covered! I really enjoyed all the various resources. One of the greatest “AHA” moments was that of mother nature– the positive and the negative.”

“I am so glad I came to this seminar. It was a very affirming experience. The activities were fun and interesting. I would (and will) recommend it to other women. Thank you so much!”
