Retreat for Breast Cancer “Thrivers” and their spouses/partners.

“When life throws you lemons, make lemonade!”
Program Description At this retreat, guests are given time to consider the impact of cancer on their lives and to reflect upon both the difficulties and the potentials that exist as a result of it. Participants will explore what it means to have healthy minds, bodies and spirits in the midst of living with cancer. Experience renewal, shared journeying and encouragement among people who understand what you’re going through because they are on the same road. At the end of the retreat, we hope participants emerge with renewed perspectives and energy.

Sara Goodman, LCSW, will be our lead facilitator for this event. Sara is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who brings a body-centered approach to her work; she has specialized in the social work fields of Oncology and Hospice. Prior to becoming a counselor, she was a Massage Therapist, working with athletes and others with chronic pain issues. Sara’s focus is to bring awareness to the present moment, helping her clients slow down and respond to life circumstances with gentleness. She has extensive experience with families, couples, and individuals. She will be joined by Diane Harris, LCSW.

Pink Lemonade is happy to give them so please ask!
*Registration “Application” – What’s that about?
Our “thriver” retreats are customized for people at different places in their cancer journeys. The reason we have you “apply” rather than completely register is so that we can make sure to match you with the right group.
When you click the registration link, you’ll go to a form that asks you to enter your name, address, phone number, and email. Within a few weeks, a retreat facilitator will call you, ask a little about your cancer journey (how long since your diagnosis, current and past treatments, etc.) and answer any questions you may have about the retreat. If you both conclude that this is a good fit, the facilitator will notify Menucha to send you a full registration form. If this retreat won’t be a good fit, you may choose to tell us that you wish to receive alerts about future groups that might better suit your needs.
If this September retreat does not fit your schedule, stay tuned for retreat dates in 2014.
We also have singles retreats planned. Check this website for further details.
Thank you for your interest in our retreats!
