The first Thrivers Retreats called “Journey to a Thriving Life” was held in the Sedona Area in 2019. The retreat was underwritten by the Northern Arizona Healthcare Foundation www.nahealthfoundation.org
Description of Thrivers Retreats
Our Thrivers’ Retreats provide an opportunity for people who have or have had cancer and are medically fit to come together in a safe, nurturing, and peaceful setting and assist in restoring your emotional, psychological, and spiritual wellbeing. It also aims to provide the tools to help cope with challenges associated with the differing stages of the cancer diagnosis, treatment, survivorship, and palliation. The retreat includes yoga, meditative journaling, and integrative therapies as well as relaxation training and effective stress management techniques. The participants are able to connect one on one with other Thrivers and practitioners in a nurturing environment that promotes healing at a very personal level.
Retreat attendees are asked to commit to participating in the HCF Create Your Life Program as ongoing group reinforcement after the retreat.
Please note: The retreats are for Breast Cancer Thrivers & patients at high risk for Breast Cancer. A doctor’s referral note is required to attend the three day retreat.
Class size is limited so registration is required. A minimum of 12 attendees is required to hold a retreat.
