What will you experience.... 
During the retreat, we will embark on a journey of healing and therapy together within a warm and secure setting. We are here to offer you the necessary tools and resources to release yourself from the burden of generational pain and embrace a newfound sense of freedom. 
Within our nurturing and safe environment, built on trust, connection, and respect, you can openly share and work through your most challenging issues and painful experiences at your own pace. This space is designed to hold and support your healing journey, as you explore and discover your true self among a community that values vulnerability and honesty. 
Trauma can be at the root of depression and anxiety disorders and this retreat will give you the opportunity to explore the trauma brought on by your upbringing and your difficult relationship with your mother in childhood and currently and any ancestral trauma that has been brought down through the mother lines. 
Together, we will explore the path towards freeing yourself from the roles in your family system, the chronic people pleasing, and the feelings of disconnection and resentment that hold you back. Let us guide you in rediscovering your innate ability to effortlessly find the peace you so deserve. 
Through engaging in both group and individual exercises, you will embark on a transformative journey where you will uncover fresh pathways to embrace your genuine self and unleash your true potential. This empowering experience will pave the way for you to embrace your inner strength and evolve into the incredible person you were always destined to become in every aspect of your life.

Meet Vanessa 
After years of active and chronic addiction I came into recovery in 2001 to be confronted with a whole heap of self esteem work I needed to do. 
I was terrified of judgement and was a chronic people pleaser. 
I had no boundaries in my life with others or with myself. 
There were abandonment issues from my childhood which I needed to work through. 
My life was limited as a result and I felt frustrated at my inability to find authentic meaning in my life.  
Following a life transition into running my own business in 2017 (the business of my dreams) I ventured onto a spiritual path which took me to Australia to a retreat last year. 
There I connected with some of my lineage. I had always been curious about my grandmother who was an alcoholic. Was that where I got it from? 
My journey since then has involved a deeper level of healing and discovery and I am so excited to share this with others to help them 'Heal their mother line' and release what has been passed down to us in dysfunction and mental struggles due to the restrictions that have been placed on women for so many years. 
Meet Tania 
For years, fear, insecurity, and disconnection have consumed my life. These emotions trapped me in a continuous battle with self-doubt, convinced that I was never truly deserving. Consequently, I found myself constantly seeking external validation, desperately trying to prove my worth. This pursuit only led me to attract toxic relationships, perpetuating a cycle of unhappiness. All of these struggles have their origins deeply embedded in the wounds of generational trauma. 
All of that transformed when I fully embraced my personal healing journey with my ancestors. Today, I proudly stand as the leading lady in my own life. I have finally unlocked the ability to love myself unconditionally and become my own source of validation. With newfound courage, I fearlessly pursue my dreams and embrace risks. The shadow of failure and judgment no longer haunts me. I have learned to trust my intuition, seeking guidance within myself as my truest confidant. Finally, I am thriving in a life I wholeheartedly adore. 
I am here to support those of you who are treading the same path as mine, in breaking free from the burdens of generational trauma that have shaped your experiences. Together, we can pave the way for your personal growth and empowerment to help you shine brightly in your own life.

"I can wholly recommend Vanessa’s Healing the Mother line course… The childhood emotional neglect I experienced emerged like a volcano and I was aware this was so harmful to both my spirit and my mums. Vanessa’s content flows beautifully… I would highly recommend this to anyone wishing to gain resolution with any painful feelings and blocks in their mother relationship"
