One-Day Retreat for Caregivers - Postponed


Led by Julia Rowland

- Saturday, November 3, 8:45am-4pm

Smith Center Living Well with Cancer One-Day RetreatThis one-day retreat is designed for caregivers, often the spouse, partner, friend, or relative who accompanies a loved-one on what is frequently an exhausting and arduous cancer journey. In this one-day retreat we will explore stress management and self-care with yoga, nutrition and creativity, sharing information and personal experience in support of caregivers' unique needs. 

Our one-day retreats offer an opportunity to experience many of the benefits of our Weeklong Cancer Retreats in an abbreviated format. Our goal is to help participants make life-affirming changes by providing empowering tools and knowledge in a community of others facing a cancer diagnosis.

"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
