Celebrating young women - for Mothers and Daughters (Ages 9 to 12):

Celebrating Young Women is a fun, active and social Retreat and a special moment for mums and their daughters to connect.

We gather as a learning circle and become a circle of friends. We enjoy games, traditional crafts, stories and creative expression. We learn practical living skills and how to be a good friend and strength the mother - daughter bond.

We explore authentic expression and emotional self-care. We learn that all our feelings are OK, including anger, impatience and boredom. We experience living completely in our bodies. We talk about menstruation and the changes of puberty.

All of this cultivates self-esteem, self-confidence, and - what girls at this age are particularly hungry for - a feeling of being grounded on Mother Earth and lovingly held by something larger than themselves.

This event is for young women (age 9 and up) and their mothers. Girls are also welcome to come on their own.


Location is at St Augostine's Church, 92 Como Parade West, Mentone.
