A weekend experience for mothers and daughters to build relationships while nurturing themselves as women.
This is for you if:
- You feel distance between you and your daughter
- You find yourself reacting to her in ways that aren't helpful
- You want your daughter to turn to you when she's struggling
- You want to connect with your daughter before it's too late
- You want to feel closer and know exactly what your daughter
needs from you
Create deeper and healthier ways of interacting that honor you as mother and daughter.
We're in this together, and this day? It's all about you.
One weekend per month
Arrive at your relaxing retreat in West Chester, PA
Start your weekend by leaning into the strength already present in your relationship and connecting with Hilary on your intentions for the weekend.
On Friday evening enjoy a private cooking class that is as relaxing as it is delicious. Not a chef? No worries, you will learn to cook something you love then share the meal together.
Journaling in the park,
End your weekend with relaxing yoga and a ritual to cement all of your growth and your journey forward
AT THE END OF YOUR WEEKEND, YOU WILL WALK AWAY...

Allow yourself to feel nurtured and taken care of, while you focus on connecting with each other and being present in the moment.

Leave feeling loved and full of hope for the future.
ARE YOU READY TO FEEL CLOSER AND MORE ATTUNED to YOUR DAUGHTER?
A counselor and coach for mothers and daughters with over thirteen years of experience & training. In a culture that tells us to accept the conflict between mothers and daughters, I encourage mothers to challenge this through nurturing, love and understanding. With two mother-daughter relationships of my own I found it critical to learn how to break the patterns that didn't serve us and create a new way of relating with both my mother and daughter, where we all felt loved and understood.
I grew up watching my mother write her own recipes, design beautiful experiences and teach women how to feel confident in the kitchen. She has a knack for turning everyday occasions into special ones. She raised three daughters to become feminists and women who are passionate about helping others.With over forty years of entertaining and culinary expertise, Nancy joins us to teach mothers and daughters how to bond over these special moments at home in every season.
