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!
Set in the stunning Buckinghamshire countryside, St. Katherine's is a dedicated retreat centre, mostly hosting prayer and meditation retreats. It is comfortable and homely with a fascinating history.
Simple but tasty meals are made at St. Katherines which are all halal.
There are five group therapy sessions around specific menopause issues and a personal 1:1 session with our qualified therapists.
About the Retreat
To facilitate our journey into our spiritual power, we do group prayers, dhikr and Maulid as well as Islamic meditation at different times throughout the day.
We have a range of activities on offer including art and poetry, nature walks, Tai Chi, Yoga, as well as makeovers and a bellydancing class!
How can we manage symptoms?
We have two special guests, Rabiah Mali from the Herbal Blessing Clinic who will guide you how to make your own intuitive medicines with recommended herbs and Dr Amina who will discuss the range of medical treatments available.
15 min drop-in sessions included with Rabiah to help find the perfect remedy for you!
We find inspiration from Sayyidinata 'Aisha (r) a fountain of wisdom, leader and mother of the believers and Sufi saint Rabiah Aadawiya q.

WHAT SISTERS SAID ABOUT THE LAST RETREAT
You emerge a different person. Definitely worth every woman to experience at least once in their life. Brilliant at accomodating people experiencing any difficulty.
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
