Gimme some of that wild fox medicine!
But, keep me here in this wild present tense…

Hello Mother, hello Daughter…

We are keeping a diary of the magic as it unfolds.  We will not be posting our entries until after the event so to be fully present with you and to give us time to reflect and settle in back home.   Today, we begin at the beginning…

I packed the car the night before so that I could roll out of bed at dawn and hit the road. The drive was spectacular, especially the stretch through the mountains leading to our forest sanctuary.

When I reached the forest I was awestruck. I have never seen so many butterflies in one place. I had to stop my car and shoo them away from a puddle in the dirt road so I could continue driving toward the rickety wooden bridge without harming them.

I arrived at the sanctuary only a few moments before Becky and her daughters so I set out to explore the grounds and look for Narnia, the shelter we would share.

Narnia is like a three story treehouse with a bamboo railing between us and nature. This is the view from my bed.

With great excitement we all began unpacking and preparing for our guests who were due to arrive the following day.  The beauty of this place is astounding.  Our spirits are soaring!

Made so & rooted by love,

Hello Mother, Hello Daughter!

Everything is coming together beautifully–blissfully– for this summer’s inaugural Mighty Creative Adventure.

We still have room for a few more adventurers and we’d LOVE to welcome you to our opening circle on July 9th in our enchanted woodland sanctuary. This retreat is for mothers of all ages and daughters ages 8 to 14.

Today we launched our Mighty Creative community on Facebook. We will support our online community by sharing ideas that support and nurture girls, mothers and creativity. If you are on Facebook and would like to join us, please LIKE here, then click the arrow next to LIKE to Opt-In to Receive Notifications in your feed. We share only beauty and noteworthy ideas!

We’ve had a few private emails with some excellent questions, so we thought we’d take a moment to share here.

Can I bring more than one daughter?
Yes indeed! Some mothers are bringing more than one daughter, and others with more than one of-age-daughter are choosing to come with one daughter to focus on their special bond.

I want to register but prefer to pay by check, or to pay in two payments.
You may pay by check. Get in touch with us HERE and we’ll send you payment details. And yes, you can break payments up. We do not want finances to hinder your participation

What airport is nearby and is there a shuttle service?
Our retreat is about 40 minutes from the Asheville (AVL) airport in North Carolina. Our retreat site host may be able to pick you up. Shuttle service from airport to our enchanted forest is $50.

What time will we finish on Sunday (June 12)?
Most of our guests have to journey home, and some girls begin a new school year the day after our retreat. With this in mind, our closing circle will be at 930 Sunday morning, intending to be done by 11. You are welcome to stay longer and enjoy the gardens, or go after our circle.

We are honored to be breathing life into this creative adventure.  With love we offer you the very experience that we’ve longed for as girls, a women’s circle for mothers and daughters that is nearly extinct in our world today. We are offering a safe and loving retreat experience for mothers and daughters to come together for activities that nurture connection, creativity, intuition, and wisdom. If this speaks to you, we hope we will see you around our Mighty Creative fire!

You may register and find more details HERE.

Hello Mother, Hello Daughter,

Welcome to our special web campsite where we will share news and updates about the Mighty Creative Adventure.  Enjoy your visit here.  We are so grateful that you are considering taking this journey with us.   We have poured our love, energy, and creativity into this adventure in order to birth a mother and daughter retreat experience that we believe is missing and very much needed in our world.

Please join us in wishing a happy birthday to our Mighty Creative Adventure!

The Mighty Creative Adventure will be nestled in the National Pisgah Forest, in Barnardsville, North Carolina – a secret location revealed only to registrants.  We will gather on Thursday July 9th and conclude midday on Sunday July 12th.  It will be a pilgrimage for mothers and daughters to delve deep into your love, your creative essence, to explore a new world together at our camp in the mountains.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Forest at the opening ceremony of our Mighty Creative Adventure in July.  We hope you will join us in making magical memories!

your loving guides,

b and w sig
