Program Description

Experience a unique opportunity to spend time together in fun new ways. During this weekend, you will slow down, explore, create, and receive support for successfully navigating and appreciating the preteen years.

Sil Reynolds and her 25-year-old daughter Eliza Reynolds welcome mothers and their 10- to 12-year-old daughters for a weekend of discovery and celebration. You will experience ritual, storytelling, art, and exercises in communication that build strong bridges of connection for the years ahead.

Together, you will learn how to:

  • Compassionately listen and share with each other, fostering mutual respect and understanding
  • Strengthen your mother-daughter bond in new ways, supporting the transition into the teen years
  • Enjoy spending time together in creative ways.

Mothers and daughters will also have time with Sil and Eliza separately for compassionate coaching. Mothers will meet with Sil to share the joys and challenges of mothering a preteen, including finding the balance of holding on and letting go. Daughters will spend time with Eliza and her team of teen assistants to express their feelings and visions as daughters and as emerging teens and young women.

Sil and Eliza have been leading mother-daughter workshops for over a decade and always create a wonderfully supportive community. You will take home special memories and a renewed appreciation for each other, with practices for deepening your journey together.

Why Attend?

  • Create special mother-daughter memories and create a foundation for healthy communication and mutual respect for years to come.

  • Honor and celebrate this time in your relationship by taking a retreat together.

  • Let your hopes and dreams, challenges and concerns be heard in a supportive, nourishing, and uplifting environment.
