MOON TO MOON
A journey of self discovery, education and growth for Perimenopausal women
Moon to Moon Retreat
Perimenopause is a Time of Transition and Growth
As a Naturopathic Doctor and Homebirth Midwife I have had the honor of helping hundreds of mothers through the childbirth process and thousands of women through the transition of Menopause. Of the two transitions, one has been historically cherished and one has been shrouded in fear and mystery. When a woman is pregnant, she attends several prenatal visits, childbirth classes and postpartum visits yet there is no such guidance offered for women going through Menopause and as a result, women often feel alone and scared of what lies ahead of them.
This retreat offers an opportunity to empower Perimenopausal women with information about the body and its several changes and how to support it gracefully with natural therapies so that she can come out the other side feeling stronger and more resilient than when she started.

Glen Dye Cabins & Cottages
Glen Dye is a private estate of around 15,000 acres, surrounded by wilderness forest and moorland on the banks of the River Dye.
The location is fabled; watched over by the massive granite tor of Clachnaben and at the northern end of the Cairn o Mount mountain pass.
This is where the Howe of the Mearns finally gives in to the Highland boundary fault; wild, beautiful and very, very quiet.
