Mother Daughter Retreat - Dormy Park
Hope & Rachel, along with a South Coast team of distinguished facilitators, contributors & caterers invite you to "be" a part of a luxury retreat tailored for mothers & daughters aged 10-16. Join us for an unforgettable weekend of complete grounding, connection & wellness for you and your girl. You'll be guided into experiences derived from holistic, integrative & evidence-based therapeutic modalities ranging from art therapy, trust yoga, mindfulness, relationship discovery, sound healing and beyond, all while being fed beautifully catered meals without lifting a finger.
You'll stay in the picturesque hills just south of Berry at a beautiful homestead where you’ll be invited to explore as much, or as little of the area as you like. Upon arrival you'll be welcomed to Dormy Park with signature mocktails to toast your daughter and sip on as you ground yourself into the space. You'll then kick off the weekend with a workshop run by The Doors of Berry, during which you'll create a beautiful memento of your time together to take home. Saturday will be filled with opportunities that include a heart centred yoga session run by Jess from Hope Springs Yoga Experiences. This offering is prepared with a focus on breath work and movement for all yoga abilities, led with the intention that you have fun with your girl whilst experiencing the benefits of yoga.
Following yoga, you’ll indulge in a hands-on cooking (and eating) experience led by your host, Qualified Health & Nutrition Coach, Hope. Alongside your daughter, you'll get your hands dirty whilst working with ingredients that are not only delicious but also offer the nutrients to support your body to function at its best. Hope will facilitate playful connection, learning and creativity that will ignite the opportunity for you & your daughter to continue to connect over nourishing foods, recipes & time spent in the kitchen. The recipes prepared will become part of your Saturday brunch and you'll return home after the retreat inspired & with a booklet of new recipes!
In the afternoon you’ll be invited to relax into a Sound Healing Experience where you and your daughter will feel more connected internally and with each other. Together you'll set powerful relationship intentions, cultivating love, strength and kindness, releasing anything that no longer serves you and making space for new beginnings. Bess from The Bess Life offers an unforgettable experience immersing you into the sounds of soothing vocals & music in a space of deep healing and relaxation.
In addition to our scheduled experiences, you'll have an opportunity to hike to the outlook peak from the property grounds, engage in concocting natural DIY personal care products, cosy up by the fire with some prompted journaling & cups of tea or cocoa OR, you may be feeling very brave and want to take a polar bear pool plunge. All optional activities were architected to foster connection & growth with your daughter, often through playfulness & vulnerability. We encourage you to arrive with an open mind & you may just surprise yourself at what may unfold. How you choose to spend the open time is completely up to you both.
Over the course of the weekend, you & your daughter will have the opportunity to reflect & grow through therapeutic journaling prompts as part of your experience facilitated by Rachel, clinical social worker & private practice therapist. These interwoven prompts will guide you into a meaningful & fun art therapy experience of Relationship Discovery Vision Boarding on the Saturday evening. Clinical resources provided by Dr Fiona Ghiglione, founder of 'Mothering Girls' will also be provided for you to further explore upon returning home from the workshop should you wish to build on your toolkit for relationship discovery & connection.
Hope & Rachel carefully curated a bespoke team of local providers to cultivate an optimal weekend of nourishment. You'll savour flavours from locally produced ingredients & meals prepared by the likes of Buena Vista Farm, Milkwood Bakery, Flour Water Salt and Saturday dinner catered by Dandelion & Mallow who's organic, whole-food seasonal menu is thoughtfully crafted to satisfy your taste buds and soothe your soul.
Supporting mothers and daughters to enrich their relationship is a passion & a privilege for Hope & Rachel. Upon arrival you'll receive a special gift bag filled with everything you'll need to enhance your retreat experience.. We believe there will be countless beautiful memories made during this weekend which will be captured through the lense of Teegan Tagg Photography. These special moments will become images that will be yours to keep following the retreat.
