3rd Eldest Daughter Retreat 9-12 March, 2019 at the Findhorn Foundation, Scotland

Come join us for the 3rd edition of the Eldest Daughter Retreat, which provides a life-affirming opportunity to meet other firstborn women and reflect on our role as the eldest daughters. The 3,5 days will be a deep dive into what drives you personally and professionally. Through the expert facilitation of Gill Emslie we will become more conscious of our eldest daughter patterns – also through seeing them acted out by the other participants. We will also have time to participate in the Findhorn schedule of meditations, to be in nature and by the sea and exchange on topics close to our heart with women of the tribe we belong to without having known it.

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

Conversation with Linda Mackenzie

On August 7, Lisette joined Linda Mackenzie for a conversation on The Eldest Daughter Effect. Yes, the host of this weekly fun, informative and entertaining program navigating natural health and spirit is a firstborn woman, too. Linda agreed that it was time we as eldest daughters had a book written about us. In the lively conversation we touched on the dynamics between parents and the 1st born, the big 5 characteristics of eldest daughters and our need to be perfect, how we like work with a purpose and hints on what works best for us in love.

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.
