A GIFT FOR YOURSELF

This is an opportunity for women who are about to marry,

to mark this special threshold moment in a unique

and meaningful manner.

Away from the distractions of the world or the usual mayhem

of hen do's, we offer a quiet and tranquil space for women

to reflect on this new life they are about to embark on...

It is a momentous moment, a voyage into the unknown and should be acknowledged and treasured as such.

Gift yourself with the opportunity to dive deep into your heart and discover the pearls within.

Although Maria's predominant background is in the therapeutic arts, she also has experience in couples counselling therapy in which she found that over 50% of all marriages end in divorce within the first 3 years! It is her belief that this heartbreaking statistic is due to the fact that very few people prepare well for the huge change in their life that marriage will inevitably bring. 

 

Given the right preparation and support, women have much more resilience and insight to be able to both fully ENJOY the bliss that marriage brings and to weather the storms that relationships inevitably bring. They also have a strong sense of the web of sisterhood that surrounds them and they know they can reach out if they need guidance or support.

Traditionally the priest or the chief of the tribe would offer counselling and advice to the couples in advance of the wedding and ongoing support. Also, in the red tent culture etc, women were often gifted the wisdom and experience of their elders. We have lost this culture entirely and Maria is deeply passionate about bring back this sacred rite of passage for brides to be. 

As you step from maiden to wife, We welcome you to a magical place where you will be nurtured and nourished deeply, physically, emotionally and spiritually. 

You will leave feeling blessed up and blissed out!️️
