This is special, unique to Australia and is most definitely like no other because I know what mums of teens need; a chance to learn, relax, unwind and enjoy really delish food, red wine by the camp fire if we wish and a rare opportunity to engage in the most authentic and rich learning and conversations about ourselves as women and our role as mothers of young people. We explore parenting, what's happening for teenagers in our rapidly changing world and we lean in to honest and respectful learning. This retreat is one which truly speaks to the heart and soul of mums who are loving and raising teenagers during a time of significant life stage transition. Grey areas are in abundance, expectations can be confusing and time for ourselves is something we yearn for.
Wise Women Retreats are unique; no raw food or juice detox... Just 15-20 mums choosing to take a cheeky break to enjoy the opportunity to learn in circle, reflect as women, explore theories, ideologies and philosophies so important to women, mothers and partners in a modern era. Wise Women Retreats offer essential joy that only delish meals, rich conversation, chocolate, music and the most wonderful company of like-minded women can bring!
Claire is your experienced host and it's her absolute pleasure to make your Spring Retreat one of the most memorable experiences for you; learning and exploring among new friends in Western Australia's stunning 'down south' region of Geographe Bay.
Arriving on Friday afternoon at 3-4pm and settling in with other mums just like you, who could do with a recharge, good quality learning, rich conversation, beautiful surroundings and zero pressure. We could even switch off our mobile phone... Squeal with delight!!
Just imagine precious time with a very important purpose... Recharge, learn, upskill, be more informed, talk, listen and connect with mums raising teens in a world that can sometimes feel a little bit overwhelming. Sound like something you would like? Or you need, really need? Well... This magic little Wise Women get-a-way is happening in October 2017 and you are invited to mark the dates - 3pm on 27th - 3pm on the 29th of October
Claire is all about jumping in, sharing, be involved and making everyone feel valued and welcome.
Zero judgement is the only 'retreat rule', so as wise women we can all rest easy in sharing our wisdom, gently learning from one another and connecting with wonderful women in the most the most beautiful surroundings.
Claire designs a beautifully paced schedule with a perfect mix of group, partner, camp fire, beach & bush and 'do whatever takes your fancy' time. All will be revealed when you are arrive, because Wise Women trust that it is ok for someone else to take the load, plan, prepare and create a retreat that is everything you need it to be.
Popular "I want to know more" topics which are gently blended through retreat session, acivities and circles are: curfews, body image, friendships, social media, self-esteem and self-worth, personal standards and expectations, understanding non-negotiables, split/blended families, social and emotional intelligence, aligning beliefs, values and choices, parent- teen communication, sex, pornography, identity as a mum of teenager and parent relationships.
We have booked the entire camp, so we have it all to ourselves. There's an abundance of cabins, with a combination of comfy single or double beds and bunks.
Wise Women, when you wave goodbye and head home to those near and dear to you, you will take home a gorgeous gift bag so you can continue spoiling yourself long after our retreat is over, because that's what wise women do.
A wonderful, calm, caring atmosphere to share thoughts, learn new skills & approaches to build and nurture a happy relationship with my teenage son. Claire, you are a host with priceless advice and knowledge. Thank you
I am so glad that I attended your TLC. Lots to think about and many great tools and strategies to use. So many light bulb moment for me and I'm just so appreciative. Thank you Claire xx
Thanks Claire, great information and practical ideas to implement to help our entire family and give our girls life long skills. I loved it, thank you. Beautiful mums that I loved sharing the day with.
Excellent and really enjoyable afternoon. I loved the conversations and understanding that I am still developing and we are all growing together. In our family we are all learning about each other... Food for thought, actually a wonderful feast! Thank you.
Lovely small group, very open and trusting forum for sharing and learning. Really important and totally relevant information to take home with me and it all made perfect sense, quite a revelation to me. Thank you so much x
Awesome afternoon, beautiful ladies, lots of laughs and learning. Most valuable. Thanks so very much Claire
Claire, I can't thank you enough. Processing through what you taught us on Saturday gave me a whole different perspective on "teachable moments". Resulting in my boy coming to ME to explain his behaviour, instead of me exploding at him. I felt like I'd witnessed a miracle. Thank you so much.
Simply just thank-you, for so many reasons... To be able to learn and laugh is invaluable to me.. Xx
The TLC session was such an enjoyable and beautiful afternoon with beautiful mums 💗 Thank you Claire xx
