WHAT SISTERS SAID ABOUT THE LAST RETREAT

Recycled Paper

It was a perfect combination of spiritual, intellectual, social and physical nourishment. We learned, shared, cared and laughed in equal measure although we'd never met before. We met around a very specific topic, the menopause, and this made our bond immediate and very strong. I highly recommend this retreat.

Recycled Paper

A great place to learn about the menopause in a holistic and spiritual way and share your worries and problems. A beneficial time of self discovery and self acceptance with like minded sisters. Structured well with lots of activities to suit all.

Recycled Paper

You emerge a different person. Definitely worth every woman to experience at least once in their life. Brilliant at accomodating people experiencing any difficulty.
