Help raise money for a good cause!
Come and spend a day having fun and connecting with other sisters while doing the wonderful program of poetry and art workshops, art therapy class, mindful movements and more.
In this online retreat, we make the intention for our journey to Allah, to take time for ourselves and have a wonderful time with other sisters in the fabulous creative and therapeutic workshops, meditations and mindful movements.
For those with children at home, we have a special art wellbeing class for them!
On Sunday the 12th March, we can turn off our notifications, ask others to look after the kids, light candles and relax. And knowing we are raising money for those in Somalia - 50% of money received will go directly to them!
For those with a busy schedule, please drop in as you like :).
Sisters and children only
By joining us on our weekend retreat you help raise money for starving families in Somalia!
Contemplation and remembrance of Allah
With meditation, dhikr as well as taking part in a complete khatm of Quran (in our own time) , there will be plenty of opportunity to slow down and connect our hearts to Allah and receive endless blessings and rewards.
Movement and mindfulness
With Yoga and Tai Chi, we can harmonise the body, heart and mind.
With art therapy, poetry and the creative arts, we access our inner world for healing, insight and inner peace.
For children, there is a wellbeing art class to explore emotions and to have fun!
You can make a dedicated space in your home for this weekend retreat or even book yourself into a hotel/spa for an extra treat!
