Smith Center Living Well with Cancer One-Day Retreat

This condensed version of our longer retreats help participants strengthen their innate healing mechanisms, complementing medical care with knowledge and tools to live healthier and more fulfilling lives. The day features group discussions, gentle yoga, a simple yet profound creativity activity, and talks on nutrition and healing. Scholarship assistance may be available.

The cost of the program is $40 per person. An application is required to participate. Please note that space is limited to 12 participants to ensure the best possible progam quality. If the program has filled to capacity, we can place you on the waiting list and let you know if/when a space becomes available.

“I do want to say that the one-day retreat was an absolute God-send for me. A cancer diagnosis is overwhelming and can feel very lonely and isolating. Having the opportunity to sit down with other cancer patients, survivors, caretakers, and professionals really made me feel so less alone and connected to a great group of loving, compassionate and understanding people. The retreat also provided me with perspective and new coping skills. My favorite part was the cooking demonstration. I have been making the recipes religiously and I hope to attend more of the cooking classes.” – Program Participant
