We have a few spaces left in this life-affirming, empowering retreat that offers anyone diagnosed with cancer the opportunity to explore what it means to live well– even while facing serious illness.
Cancer can be one of the greatest challenges in life, it can be a stressful, lonely and overwhelming for everyone it touches.This retreat is for anyone with any type of cancer, at any stage, who’s interested in learning tools to alleviate stress, live with more ease and acceptance and explore their own unique healing journey with cancer.We bring together powerful researched-based healing modalities that improve physical health, emotional stability, and resilience to cope with stress.Through simple mindfulness and stress reduction practices; the ancient healing discipline of Qigong; supportive sharing circles, and expressive arts there will be opportunities for self-reflection, exploration and learning skills to meet the challenges of living with cancer.
Both body and soul will be rejuvenated with delicious, organic food; time to rest and explore acres of unspoiled peaceful, old-growth forest; and the gift of the nurturing, supportive community we create together. Past participants have found it a powerful, transformative experience.

- This retreat really helps one deal with the pain and uncertainty of living with cancer. Helps one live a “healed” life, regardless of diagnosis and prognosis.—Betsy D.
- I highly recommend this program; I found a different relationship with cancer and tools to find my own healing within me – Wendy H.
- This is my first time in a group with other people living with cancer-it has been so healing. I feel heard and understood at such a deep level– Robin B.
