Thank you very much for taking 10 minutes of your precious time to give me input for this new book.

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.
