Breast cancer retreats give women the chance to “socially … let it all hang out.” In her blog about the Life Beyond Cancer retreat in Austin, Texas, ChemoBabe goes on to say, “Not only were we no longer fish out of water, we all … swam in the same aquarium.” http://www.chemobabe.com/2010/11/embraced/
In this blog, I’d like to invite you to tell us about cancer retreats you’ve been to or have heard about. To get things started, I’ve invited the founders of two Canadian programs for cancer survivors to tell you more about what they do. Please meet:
- Linda-Ann Bowling, founder of Unbridling Your Brilliance: Hoof Beats Back to Power, a horse guided program for women healing from cancer http://www.unbridlingyourbrilliance.com/hoof-beats-back-to-power12
- Kathryn Maroun, founder of Casting for Recovery Canada, fly fishing retreats in Canada for women who have or have had breast cancer www.castingforrecovery.com
- Johanne Robitaille Manouvrier, author and founder of L’Atelier Guérir sa vie, a retreat for people with cancer http://www.guerirsavie.com/ateliers.html
This list of cancer retreats is not exhaustive. Please help complete it. Tell us about your program or recommend a program that you took part in.
