Testimonial:

“I had the privilege of attending the Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis Retreat this January 2020. The group was fun and supportive with the common goal of the pursuit of a greater understanding in living well with MS. The comprehensive content of the programme was delivered by inspiring facilitators George, Georgie and Liz who genuinely lead by example. Following the OMS recommendations for a few years now have benefited me greatly by basically giving me the skills and confidence to slow down, eat well and appreciate life. I have experienced no new relapses. A notable bonus was being able to claim a portion of the Retreat costs via NDIS.”

Our approach

cancer retreats australia
In line with current restrictions on public gatherings in Victoria, March to October programs have been postponed to the latter part of 2020 (or 2021). New 2020 dates can now be found on our What's On Calendar. 2021 dates will be announced shortly. We are hopeful that will be able to resume our retreats and trainings soon, however, we continue to be led by the advice of the government. In the meantime, participants are fully protected by our flexible transfer and cancellation policy.
