Do you ever go somewhere, or try something, or meet someone that fundamentally changes who you are as a person? My experience at Sisterhood Camp can best be summed up as ‘life-changing’. I feel like a new person - a refreshed, inspired, more together person - following the four day retreat. I feel more confident in myself, with my work, and with meeting fellow creatives. I feel full of ideas and energy and an urge to create.
Sisterhood camp is undoubtedly one of my highlights of 2017. As an introvert I was apprehensive about going and knowing nobody. I shouldn’t have worried. It was like being with family. Sisterhood is a warm and supportive community of women brought together by a shared love of nature and creativity, I couldn’t have felt more at peace. I made true friends, found my tribe of people.Those few days have changed my life, seriously, the experience and connections helped grow my confidence, my business and has given me a community of love and support that I will cherish. I’m looking forward to coming to the next one.
Returning from a holiday often leaves me feeling strangely frazzled – so much work to catch up on, so many emails to answer, clothes to unpack and wash… But every now and then, I’m lucky enough to experience a break that’s truly refreshing and restorative.
The Sisterhood retreat was a fabulous experience from start to finish. On pulling up to the entrance of the stunning La Cannonerie I instantly felt overjoyed and excited for what was to come. On entering what was to be my accommodation for the next four nights I was instantly blown away by the attention to detail and love that created this place.Our sisterhood was an amazing group of like-minded souls. We gathered, chatted, laughed and cried all whilst being made to feel like goddesses in a most beautiful space created by Lou, Dan and their team.Our days were filled with morning yoga, visiting the local village, wine and cognac tasting at Chateau Bertrand, a trip to local antique market, picnic by the river and a cookery lesson. Evenings as we gathered for pre-dinner cocktails sharing stories of our lives, loves and endeavours bonds were created and friendships made. The highlight of each evening for me was the presentation of the most sumptuously dressed dining table created for the sisterhood by Lou and her team. The food, ahhhhh the food, locally sourced and made with love. Our evenings would continue around the table with conversation, wine and frivolity flowing.The sisterhood retreat was an experience of great beauty, connection, passion and love. I cannot wait to return next year.
