Dream! A Mother Daughter Creative Escape
A Mother Daughter Retreat Weekend
October 20 -22, 2017
A Mother Daughter Retreat designed for Mothers, Grandmothers and Daughters of all ages!
Laugh, listen, and create as you participate in movement, writing and visual arts workshops that explore the concept of dreams. Moms – hear about your daughter’s hopes and dreams for the future. Daughters – discover that mom is not only “mom” but a woman just like you, with her own dreams and aspirations. Come join us at Appel Farm Arts and Music Center for a weekend packed with intentional opportunities for connection: Beginners Yoga, Fearless Songwriting, Dream Catcher Weaving, Memory Box Creation, Shibori Fabric Dying Techniques, a nature hike, a Mother/Daughter Kick Ball game, an evening campfire with traditional songs and S’mores and much, much more.
Additionally, guests will sleep in our cozy, heated dorm style bunks, fully equipped with mattressed bunk beds and modern bathroom facilities. (All you need is a sleeping bag and pillow.) Five organic and mostly vegetarian (and gluten-free if desired) meals will be served in our spacious dining hall which overlooks our very own organic garden. Our caterer, Maureen Gregory, specializes in delicious and nutritious, fresh cuisine.
Cost: $250 per Mother and Daughter pair. Includes 2 nights of overnight accommodations, 5 meals, all workshops and materials, S’mores, snacks, an ice cream sundae party and a Saturday afternoon wine tasting for mom. This retreat is intended for women, age 11 and above.
Give yourself only good dreams! Learn how to make your own Dream Catcher using natural materials, beads and feathers.
A Mandala is a circular representation of the universe which serves as a tool for guiding individuals along the path to enlightenment. In this workshop, participants will learn how to make a Mandala using Shibori dying techniques.
Use color, imagery, pattern and words to create a one of a kind box to store your treasured memories and dreams.
Make this adorable Dream Catcher Pendant necklace to take home with you as a memento of this incredible weekend.
