2nd Eldest Daughter Retreat at the Findhorn Foundation, Scotland 17-20 March, 2018

The first Eldest Daughter Retreat provided such a life-affirming opportunity to meet other firstborn women that we are organising one again in 2018. Please come and join us to reflect on your role as the eldest daughter. There will be space to reconnect with what drives you personally and professionally and become more conscious of your eldest daughter patterns – also through seeing them acted out by others in the room. The accomplished Gill Emslie will again be the expert facilitator of our sessions. There will also be time to walk in the woods, spend time by the sea and exchange on topics close to your heart with women of the tribe you belong to without having known it.

Here you’ll find more information as well as the registration form.

The Telegraph interview

Am I more successful because I’m the eldest child?

Dr Ana Nuevo-Chiquero, from the University of Edinburgh team that led the study, said: “As the household gets bigger, [parents’] time has to be split with younger children, so they miss out on the advantage of being an only child for a time. “It doesn’t mean firstborns get more love – that stays the same.

Radio interview - Breakfast with Erica

After having worked in radio, Erica Longdon became a healer working with angels and sound. She has written a lovely novel ‘In pursuit of perfect timing’ and now does radio shows on spiritual and personal development on 12Listen. She still has the amazing voice, and the interesting questions! I sat on the virtual breakfast table with her, coming in at about minute 21.
