A Mother-Daughter Retreat
September 17-19, 2021
If you yearn to create an unforgettable experience with your pre-teen daughter that honors this transitional stage in her life, and pays homage to your maternal lineage, then join Brie for our mother-daughter retreat in Vail, Colorado
September 17-19, 2021.
Can you remember the moment when you first held your daughter? Do you remember what it felt like to know that this special being had chosen you?
Think back to the dreams you had for her. Think back to how full you felt to know that there would be a little girl in your world, a girl who would one day become a woman, who could share the feminine experience with you.
And her youth has flown before your very eyes. Here she stands, on the brink of transitioning into a young woman. You almost can't believe it.
And as you stand witness to her journey, you are reminded that you, too, are in your own stage of transition.
The memories we hold dear are moments. CHERISH is a weekend retreat experience to make precious moments with your daughter to remember for a lifetime.
Held in the beautiful, Colorado, mountains, with the autumn leaves changing as our reminder of the passing of time, we'll spend a weekend connecting, remembering, envisioning and CHERISHING your special relationship with your daughter.
So why should you join us?
Because the memories, ceremonies, conversation and connection that you form with your daughter this weekend will be something you BOTH will treasure for a lifetime. Quality time is an intangible gift that goes beyond any material possession.
As her maturation continues to happen before your eyes, you'll never regret that you spent this meaningful time with her in the beautiful mountains of Colorado.
Research shows that intergenerational identity or an understanding of one's family history and where they fit within it, can make kids more resilient and help them feel more in control of their lives, even when the world outside their family seems out of control.
Throughout the course of the weekend, we'll honor YOUR story and dig into the story of your maternal lineage, too.
Your daughter will know she is a part of something bigger. She'll learn the triumphs and tribulations of women in her particular history.
You will delight in each other's stories, the "FIRSTS" of other mother-daughter pairs, and will be held in the comfort of meaningful, feminine connection.
Together, we'll share in sacred ceremony to honor this important transition into womanhood and this new phase of motherhood.
Set within the White River National Forrest, Vail is a quaint town nestled at the base of Vail Mountain.
But this small town boasts some of the most extreme landscapes in the Rocky Mountains.
An average elevation of 8,150 ft. above sea level, visitors can lose themselves, by foot or bike, in the aspens, evergreens, and endless mountain trails Vail has to offer.
With Gore Creek running through the center of town, and an easily accessible pedestrian walking village downtown, Vail offers the perfect balance of natural beauty and mountain luxury.
Situated along one-half of a mile of Gore Creek’s Gold Medal fly fishing waters overlooking picturesque Vail Mountain, Grand Hyatt Vail offers an expansive basecamp for outdoor adventure or respite.
From hiking and mountain biking to seasonally inspired resort activities, to luxurious amenities, Grand Hyatt Vail has it all. Surrounded by otherworldly nature, the resort offers ski-in/ski-out convenience, comfortable lodgings and warm hospitality.
The daily schedule is designed with the intention to leave some time open for you and your daughter to explore the town, get a spa treatment or take a hike. The schedule is carved in sand, not stone.

A middle school teacher for nine years, Brie has a particular passion and understanding for girls of this age. Personally, she has a middle school daughter herself, and knows how special and challenging this stage can be.
Brie’s strengths lie in curriculum development, skillful facilitation, creating meaningful ritual, and connection with intuition.
A devout meditator and yoga practitioner for nearly twenty years, Brie believes these practice (and like practices) to be at the cornerstone of mental and emotional health.
Her greatest wish is that as a result of your CHERISH Retreat with your daughter, you'll feel even more connected and have memories to share for decades to come.
One last message from Brie...
Dear Incredible Woman,
I know how much you love your daughter. I know how being an incredible mother is a top priority for you. I know exactly how important this is for you because it is for me, too.
I also know how full and busy life gets. With the best intention, we mean to give her our undivided attention. But with other children, work, and outside commitments, it can feel difficult to create the space for this special bond.
But during this stage, your daughter needs you more than ever. She may not tell you this. She may not act like it sometimes. But it's true.
My intention for this retreat is to make the space for those sacred moments and special conversations. I hope you consider taking this special time for yourself and your daughter. I promise, it'll create a lifelong memory you both will treasure.
