“I never felt such a feeling of belonging as I did when I walked through those doors.” -Wind River Lung Cancer Retreat Alum
What an incredible healing experience for 10 lung cancer survivors plus the all-survivor hostess team and amazing wellness instructors at the Lung Cancer Survivors Retreat on September 21-23 at the Statesview Hotel in Raleigh! We gathered for three days, sharing deeply, exploring a myriad of wellness and stress reducing techniques, and laughing lots!
" Even though lung cancer is what brought us together, I feel that we were all able to 'forget' we had cancer for one beautiful and amazing weekend. We just focused on enjoying nature, our inner spirit and each other. Just amazing!" - Wind River Lung Cancer Retreat Alum
When asked what was their favorite activity, they almost universally said ALL OF THEM! (Granted, it is hard to choose amongst Drumming by the Moonlight, Tai Chi in lush Botanical Gardens, personal Healing Touch sessions, morning Yoga, Nutrition talks and Sharing and Connecting with fellow Lung Cancer Survivors).
Thank you again to the Lung Cancer Initiative of NC for your LCI access grant supporting this retreat!
