Life & Living Cancer Retreat
Whether you are newly diagnosed, just completed treatment or wondering what you can do for yourself, come to our Life & Living cancer retreat and explore the self-help options available to assist your recovery and improve quality of life.
Join us in the Yarra Valley, just 1 hr 20 min from Melbourne, Victoria, for an 11 day cancer retreat where you’ll be immersed in lifestyle practices based on our 7 Essential Elements to promote healing, boost immunity, reduce stress and create clarity of mind at a time when it’s needed most. You have the opportunity to share your thoughts, feelings and experiences with others on a similar journey and make an active plan for today and the future.
Over ten nights, this in-depth cancer retreat includes a variety of experiential learning sessions that cover evidence-based ‘cancer and lifestyle’ topics and interventions, as well as exploration of mind-body practices to reduce stress and remove physical, emotional and mental blocks that may be getting in the way of your body’s natural healing processes. All this, while enjoying a wide range of delicious and nutritious plant-based meals, snacks and healthy beverages which will leave you feeling deeply nourished and revitalised.
“I came away from my first retreat program with a much better understanding of my relationship to cancer, lifestyle and the life choices that we make. My diagnosis affected all of me, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Time at the Yarra Valley Living Centre gave me the opportunity to explore these areas of my life within the context of my cancer, and I began to develop the resources to set out on my cancer journey, with much less fear, and the ongoing support from the amazing staff.”
Rick Freeman, diagnosed with prostate cancer.
