Cancer is one of life’s greatest challenges. In this retreat, we learn how to navigate this potentially confusing, treacherous, and heart-breaking terrain. Our extraordinary team of experts will share their wisdom in integrative medicine, Tibetan Buddhist healing, meditation, yoga, art, ritual, and community building, providing a multi-dimensional roadmap for a transformative journey. When gently and skillfully embraced, facing our mortality or that of someone we love can be a vehicle for profound healing and awakening—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Integrating body, mind, heart, and soul, we will discover ways to meet the totality of this experience directly and courageously. Whether you have a current or past diagnosis or are the caregiver or loved one of a woman on the cancer journey, join us August 19 and receive the tools you need to transform the way you relate to the challenges you are facing.

Early registration is encouraged.
