RETREAT FOR WOMEN WITH METASTATIC BREAST CANCER- 9/12-9/16/2016

Participants are in a welcoming supportive environment where they can find understanding and support. This is an opportunity to look at the issues surrounding their breast cancer, gather information, and move beyond an intellectual understanding of the disease. Exploring feelings and fears is an essential part of the healing process. Participants enjoy guided discussions about issues specific to women with metastatic breast cancer, including dealing with difficult feelings, living with advanced breast cancer, decreasing stress. There are discussion groups, writing workshops, low-impact yoga, acupuncture sessions and much more. For information: 845/339-4673; hope@breastcanceroptions.org. There is no cost to participants to attend, other than the expenses involved in traveling to and from the retreat location. 

Funded by the Omega Institute,  your donations

HEALTHY LIFESTYLES SUPPORT SERIES: The series looks at the ways we can make small and easy changes in our daily lives for optimum health. Topics covered are: Making Informed Decisions About Complementary/ Alternative Approaches; What to Eat & Why- An in-depth discussion food as medicine; Imagery & Healing; Risk Reduction Strategies. Looking at the evidence pointing to the benefits of "anti cancer" diets, exercise, managing stress, and removing harmful chemicals from the environment. We are often left on our own to put together a healthier way of living after a cancer diagnosis. Very often there is increased anxiety after conventional treatments are completed and we are at a loss at what to do to keep ourselves healthy. We return to high stress lives giving little thought to exercise, good nutrition, and risk reduction.
