Dimensions of Healing With Cancer


Our Philosophy Based on 17 Years of Weeklong Cancer Retreats

- Tuesday, March 19, 6:30-7:30pm

With Shanti Norris, Smith Center Co-Founder & Executive Director Lecture on Deep Healing Philosophy

Smith Center's work is based on the single, profound idea that everyone harbors the innate ability to heal, even in the face of life's most serious challenges, and that ability to heal is enhanced by holistic approaches. 

This session with Shanti Norris, Smith Center's Co-Founder and Executive Director, is an opportunity to learn about our core philosophy of deep healing and integrative cancer support. We have been holding Weeklong Cancer Retreats since 1996. They are a place to explore the issues and choices that people with life-threatening illness encounter. The retreats aim to complement mainstream medical care by providing experiential healing options in the context of the highest quality small-group support. Shanti plans and staffs all of the retreats and is steeped in the vision and experience of this transformative program. 

Our programs are tailored to the needs of people affected by cancer, but we welcome anyone who would like to attend.
