Woman Kind Retreats
Kindness for Therapists
Saturday 30th June 2018
Watford Quaker Meeting House
Why is it SO hard for therapists to offer the same kindness to ourselves that we give generously to our clients? We’re in service to family, to our children, to our clients and all under time pressure to get stuff done! But how can we be also in service to ourselves?
Kindness for Therapists is a retreat day for you to receive nourishment and explore self-care that will effortlessly slip into your life and help you to stay topped up.
It’s an experiential day including a womb blessing and exploration for you access your inner wisdom, both guiding you to be kinder to yourself and giving you clarity on how to manage your energy.
Kate and Leora live in the real world with messy lives, and we know how hard it is to create space for self-kindness. This day is about telling you what to do or adding to your to-do list! Instead, you’re offered a re-set button, by creating a safe, cozy place where you can dive into your abundant inner wisdom, that is just waiting for to be heard.
“Doesn’t every living being deserve kindness?Why should you be an exception?” – Sjanie Hugo-Wurlitzer

What are Love your Belly Workshops Like?
Here’s what people have said about the workshop;
“I was blown away…through a series of interventions we each built up a relationship with our wombs and that in itself was incredibly moving. The care with which they prepared for the day was awesome – every little detail from the yummy snacks to the pack of goodies we got to take home.”
“When I was younger, right up until a ‘Love your Belly’ workshop, I had always been aware of the arrival of my periods. They had been cripplingly painful, given me headaches & had lasted 5 to 7 days.
So from the workshop I now treat myself with kindness & respect. I honour myself each month by taking time to be calm, listen to my body & be gentle with my schedule so I can live & enjoy what my body is going through rather than masking & ignoring what my body is experiencing. So I’ve gone from not even knowing what a Mooncup is to using one. I now perform, womb yoga regularly, self, tummy or womb massage & I listen to my body.
My periods are cleaner, less painful, last 3-4 days from start to finish & for the last 4 months I can’t even map when they are due because the usual tummy & back-ache doesn’t resonate like it did before. Thank you from the bottom of my womb xxxx”
“I had absolutely no expectations what this workshop would bring.. and so was absolutely blown away by the simplicity of the breathwork, the power of the abdominal exercises and the expansion I experienced from the group womb healing mediation. Utterly amazing stuff. Can’t wait till the next one! ”
Rachael Posener, Halcyon Health
“A simple and deeply connecting way of nurturing our well being and honouring ourselves as women”
