Hearing the words ‘you’ve got cancer’ will undoubtedly change your life forever. It’s what you do next that makes a difference.
For over 30 years, our compassionate and expert retreat facilitators have helped cancer patients in Australia find a better quality of life following diagnosis. We’ve seen prognoses challenged and lives transformed.
During our Outsmart Cancer – Fundamentals 4-night retreat, you will be immersed in evidence-based lifestyle practices, also known as our 7 Essential Elements to promote healing, boost immunity, reduce stress and create clarity of mind at a time when it’s needed most.
Over 5 life-changing days, you will:
- Learn the fundamentals of mind-body medicine, and the practical things you can do in your everyday life to maximise your body’s own healing potential, reduce stress and help you cope better with the challenges of a cancer diagnosis.
- Share your thoughts, feelings and experiences, and feel the support of like-minded people who are also navigating life after diagnosis.
- Develop a lifestyle action plan for realistic physical, mental and emotional results.
- Feel deeply nourished and revitalised with anti-inflammatory plant-based wholefoods.
- Explore your own emotional wellbeing, your deeper purpose and meaning in life, your support networks and your relationships.
- Return home ready to move forward with optimism, empowerment and a deep sense of inner peace.
The evidence-based lifestyle interventions and mind-body practices taught in our cancer programs, will safely support any medical treatment or complementary therapies you choose as part of your treatment plan. Attending a retreat with a partner/support person is recommended where possible.
“Cancer is a huge wake-up call, and the retreat gave me what I needed to take control of my life again and the confidence to know that the steps I’m taking now are scientifically-based and will give me the best opportunity for recovery. I came to the retreat hoping to learn how to meditate and be a healthy vegan. I got so much more. I got the fundamental tools and the confidence I needed to take my recovery journey seriously. In my situation that could be the difference between life and death. I’m very grateful to the TGCF Team for your dedication – thanks.” – Danielle, Cancer Fundamentals Retreat, Jan 2018.
