This workshop is an introduction to the Courageous Women, Fearless Living Annual Retreat, a 5-day retreat for women touched by cancer that is attended by women currently in treatment or no longer in treatment, their caregivers and loved ones.
Grounding through working with the contemplative arts of mindfulness and yoga.
Empowering because we learn knowledge and practical information about health and healing from the integrative medical perspective.
Nourishing because of the strong sense of community and shared experience.
Join us to meet the faculty and previous retreat participants, and experience some aspects of the retreat.
All workshops are from 9-12 on Saturdays.
