Is it time for a Mother-Daughter Retreat?
- Are you feeling distant from one another?
- Do you want to develop a deeper connection?
- Is your relationship estranged?
When our daughters become adults it doesn’t necessarily mean we start having an adult relationship with them. If we don’t work through our childhood wounds there may be some resentment on both sides. The mother-daughter retreat is a great opportunity to work through all old wounding and patterns so that you can begin to have a more adult relationship with each other.
If your daughter is in her 20s or 30’s and your relationship still resembles that of when she was a teen, it’s time for retreat. The retreat helps you both work through any resentments or anger that prevent you from opening your heart in a more loving way. If one of you is being triggered, the trigger alone will shut your heart down and will prevent you from having a more loving relationship.
I get to witness mothers and daughters working through old patterns and come into a healthier place with each other which will look more like an adult relationship then a parent teen relationship. Most parents want a closer relationship with their kids but have a hard time figuring out how to achieve it.
To achieve a closer relationship with each other it takes honesty and vulnerability. Usually trying to work this out without the right setting can actually do more damage than healing. The environment of the retreat is very safe and nurturing and allows all parties the ability to look at themselves deeply so they can make the shifts to have a healthy relationship. Unfortunately without the right set up you will go into old patterns and end up at the same place with a closed heart.
When we look at why we are triggered and stop acting out of our trigger in anger or shutting down, we begin to understand our behavior and then act out of a higher place in ourselves. When one party thinks they don’t have anything to work through and come to the retreat they actually realize that they do have a part in how the relationship is. Both parties in any relationship should take ownership for how the relationship looks
Even though I facilitate a lot of mother-daughter retreats, I have done father-son retreats, father daughter retreats and family retreats.
