Welcome to Mothers and Daughters on Purpose: A Retreat for Intentional Connection
There is nothing like a mother/daughter relationship. You cherish every moment, you adore each other, and sometimes, you are at odds. You repeat patterns you swore you wouldn’t do. You want to teach your daughter to do life differently, but you don’t always know how. You want your mother to grow and expand.
Mothers teach their daughters to be strong, and in turn, daughters enable their mothers to expand and grow. Together, mothers and daughters create a legacy for generations to come. The key is to create a powerful, beautiful relationship that elevates both women.
The mother daughter relationship is scientifically proven to be the strongest of all multigenerational relationships. Our brain science is the closest to each other genetically, linking us emotionally in an extremely unique way.
Mothers and daughters influence each other in positive and negative ways over the course of a lifetime. You want your daughter to be independent, but it’s hard to let go. You want her to love herself, but you struggle with it yourself. You want your mother to know you appreciate her, but the words are hard to find.
This Mother/Daughter retreat will give you the safe space, support, and tools to empower your relationship to thrive!
In Mothers and Daughters on Purpose: A Retreat for Intentional Connection, you will:
- Learn new ways to connect more positively in a relaxed, supportive, and empowering setting.
- Improve communication by learning tools that empower both of you.
- Learn to identify each others’ gifts and build upon proven, strengths-based tools to strengthen your relationship
- Each identify fears, hopes, and desires, and understand how to use your common ground and uniqueness to become closer.
- Learn how to flip negative self-talk and support each other in doing the same.
- Discover the power in recognizing your own vulnerability and joy in sharing vulnerability with each other.
- Learn and create cues to strengthen sensitivity to each other and compassion for self.
- Use group, experiential, mindful, and communicative techniques to strengthen your relationship.
This retreat promises to be transformative for the mother/daughter relationship in ways you may have never even imagined!
Mothers and Daughters on Purpose: A Retreat for Intentional Connection is the first of its kind experience for mothers and daughters of varying generations to connect, bond, and transform together.

There is nothing as powerful as mother's love, and nothing as healing as a child's soul. – Unknown
Statistically, twice as many women are depressed as men, and sadly, this discrepancy begins as teens. Women and girls face different issues than men, including daily hormonal changes throughout the monthly cycle, and throughout a woman’s life. Girls and women care more what others think, we ruminate more on the negative, we are under pressure to be perfect in every area of life, and we are at war with our bodies. According to Dove, 80% of American women dislike their bodies. According to Glamour magazine, 97% of American women are critical towards their bodies at least once a day.
A mother’s self-love and self-worth is the greatest influence on her daughter’s self-love and self-worth. A mother’s ability to follow her heart is the greatest influence on her daughter following her heart.
It isn’t what we say – it’s what they see us do.
And as we become adults, daughters can greatly influence their mothers. As we expand, grow, and elevate, we can support our mothers in doing the same.
This mother/daughter retreat is the experience of a lifetime to heal, strengthen, and create a healthy powerful bond that lasts a lifetime and changes the trajectory of empowerment for generations of women to come!
