Full Description

Need a break from cancer?

This week-long retreat is for you if you have cancer, are about to start treatment, are recovering from treatment, or if you are caring for someone who is. Being unwell is exhausting – mentally, emotionally, as well as physically. This is a week to take a break and benefit from self-care, self-discovery, relaxation and fun.

No one will ask you every five seconds if you’re okay. But support is here if you need it.

No one will tell you what to eat. But the week will feature healthy vegan food to support your immune system and help you cleanse if you choose.

Gentle yoga keeps your body flexible and limber. No experience necessary; use a chair if you need to.

Meditation practices encourage a deeper connection within. Mindfulness helps with pain management. We’ll practice in ways which are experiential, educational, serious and silly.

Nutrition workshops will help you understand some of the research linking diet and cancer. To help prevent recurrence, to help with healing, to support your immune system through treatment, and increase energy and general vitality.

Cooking classes are hands-on fun so you can learn how to eat this way at home.

Forest bathing and walks in nature will help lift your spirit, fill you with fresh air and renew vitality. Feel the link between yourself and the rest of nature.

Everything this week is optional.
Participate at your own pace, nap when you need.
Read all afternoon or book a massage.
Create the experience you need most.
Truly take a break.
