Autumn Leaves
Menopause Retreat
Welcoming the Wise Woman
Oct 24th-27th 2022

Taking place in Buckinghamshire, U.K., come and join us on our therapeutic four-day retreat where we explore the challenges faced by women entering and living through the menopause. 

There will be many themes focused on, including loss of youth, issues around lack of marriage or children, as well as managing symptoms and emotional states.

We will provide a space for us to connect to our inner wisdom and spirituality, letting go of the past and to enjoy the years ahead with new energy, joy and focus, entering into another phase of spiritual power and wisdom inshAllah. 

We will also be welcoming Rabiah Mali (The Herbal Blessing Clinic, Green Deen Tribe, Pearls of Islam) and GP Dr. Amina to discuss ways to manage symptoms through both natural methods and HRT.

 

There will be lots of fun with the other sisters with drumming and bellydancing as well as uplifting nasheeds, and dhikr! 

 

 

We look forward to welcoming you!

WHAT SISTERS SAID ABOUT THE LAST RETREAT

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.

Recycled Paper

A spiritual retreat to connect with Allah and Rasulullah (s.a.w.) A must, as it helps with reconnecting with self and evaluating owns life/self. It healed wounds for me and brought me nearer an amazing group of sisters.

A perfect place to unravel thoughts and walkaway with new life tools, greater strength and a refined wider perspective
