Sisterhood Gatherings at The Quaives

Welcome Sisters,

I am Clare, your host of the Sisterhood Gatherings at the stunning retreat, The Quaives, in Kent just 15 minutes from Canterbury, and a short speedy ride on the train from London.

You are most welcome to join us on these wonderful gatherings of women from all walks of life, with many stories, wisdoms, and gifts.

Each weekend is themed differently, so that we can delve in deeper to the teachings and experiences without being overloaded. You are invited to come to experience the unique offerings of each one. I am in the process of developing level 2, dates and information of which will be released soon. You do not need to do Level 1 in order, there is no order, each one is a separate entity and they all tie in nicely together.

“It was eye opening and I will be taking away a lot of knowledge I would like to put into practice. Especially the empowered communication teachings, it really changed my perspective and will defiantly be trying it out. Everything was amazing- food, place, teacher! The classes were everything (and more) I could have hoped for, first yoga retreat and it won’t be my last!

— Lydia Denning, UK

“The surroundings are incredibly beautiful and it was wonderful to spend some time away
from everyday life whilst being so close to home. The Quives is such a wonderful space to
relax and retreat and a lot of effort has gone in to making you feel really cared for and held.
Meeting so many wonderful and inspiring women and being led by Clare was a real privilege
and I felt very safe in the my experience. And I really enjoyed the interesting and
enlightening discussions are part of the workshop aspects of the weekend. I would really
recommend going to stay at The Quives in any capacity, but particularly as part of a retreat.
Really good value and a really enjoyable and enlightening weekend!

— Biddy, UK

“I felt the space was very well held and felt safe to be myself in it. I felt nurtured, loved and comforted. The environment was also so beautiful and accommodation thank you, it was such treat.

— - Natasha, Ireland

“I gained so much from the weekend, and felt some real shifts in myself which is fantastic. The group of women was fantastic, and something I didn’t know I needed until I did.
So appreciate your holding the space for us all, and I plan on joining the next retreat.

— Kelly, UK
