Nurturing Journey Retreat Program


A diagnosis of breast cancer can turn your world upside down and change your life forever.  But no matter what stage of the journey you are on, it is important to take some time just for you - time to learn, to grow, to find strength, and to reconnect with your body, mind, and spirit. 
The Nurturing Journey Retreat Program is designed especially for breast cancer survivors.  The weekend and one-day programs offer an escape from the stresses of everyday life and an opportunity to relax, share, and heal in a peaceful and comforting setting with new and old friends. Each retreat program is facilitated by a group of experienced women leaders and include sharing circles; yoga/relaxation/meditation sessions; healing through creativity activities, complementary therapy sessions, and much more.

What are participants saying about their retreat experience…?
“The retreat really turned me around and lifted me up! I now have many strategies for taking care of myself.  I have much less fear, and I know how to hopefully have fewer anxious moments.”
“I learned that I need to celebrate the simple things – every day, in any way.”
“Knowing how [other women] have gotten through and feeling their support, encourages me to move forward.”
“I now know how important and necessary it is to nurture myself – that it is not selfish.”
