Awake and Alive: Mindful Living with Cancer Retreat

Erica Rayner-Horn will lead Awake & Alive: Mindful Living with Cancer Retreat.

We warmly invite anyone ever diagnosed with cancer to our annual 5 day rejuvenating, healing retreat.

Join us for this unique opportunity and leave refreshed, inspired and renewed.

Imagine practicing the healing arts of mindfulness, meditation, self-compassion and Qigong, that help you calm fear and anxiety, boost immunity, build resilience and cope better with stress.

Imagine the gift of spending five days in a warm and nurturing community of kindred spirits also impacted by cancer, sharing stories and insights in a safe, supportive circle. With time for self-reflection, journaling and expressive arts.

Imagine deep relaxation as both body and soul are nourished with delicious, organic food and the serenity and peacefulness of 100 acres of protected forest, labyrinth, trails and gardens.
