7th Annual Courageous Women: Retreat for Women Touched by Cancer

with Adana Barbieri & Judy Lief
August 20 / 5:00 AM - August 25 / 6:00 AM

Cancer is one of life’s greatest challenges. How does one navigate this potentially confusing, treacherous and heart-breaking terrain in the most enlightened way? Our extraordinary team of experts will share their wisdom in integrative medicine, Tibetan Buddhist healing, meditation, yoga, art, ritual and community building providing a multi-dimensional roadmap for this transformative journey. When gently and skillfully embraced, facing our mortality or that of someone we love can be a vehicle for profound healing and awakening—physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Integrating body, mind, heart and soul, we will discover ways to meet the totality of this experience directly and courageously.

Whether you have a current or past diagnosis or are the caregiver or loved one of a women on the cancer journey, join us August 20th and receive the tools you need to transform the way you relate to the challenges you are facing.
