Our Sister Initiative of ...
I went to the retreat because I needed help, support, understanding, empowering and centering whilst going through this big change. I received all of this, very much so. Thank you to all that made it and added to the experience. I felt a physical change within myself, new, at a cellular level and now have the tools needed to move forward.
The healing sessions were awesome, beautiful, calming and precious.
The retreat covered holistic wellness extremely well.
PS I am in my body now.

The amazing support I felt from everyone on the day - allowed me to reconnect to my heart - opening a space for the deepest healing & letting go to begin.
My beloved Mother passed nearly 2 years ago and my beloved dog & I were diagnosed with cancer at the same time in February - he passed 7 months ago. My beloved Self - 3 Breast Cancer Surgeries in 4 months.
I have been struggling to deal with & move through all the emotions. Everyday I'm in the process & now since the retreat have the extra tools needed to get me there.
Thank you for putting on such a wonderful day.

I had Breast Cancer in 2006 and finished Chemotherapy in 2007. As my treatment was so many years ago, and I had been to a previous Breast Cancer Care retreat in 2016, I had thought that I was long finished with the healing process, but what I found amazing at this recent retreat was that I uncovered some old hurts and feelings that I hadn't yet fully felt and processed. It was very liberating to share with all the women attending and to feel like everything I was sharing was understood.
What I realised was that even though the physical scars on my breast had healed some of the emotional scars had not and during the retreat old hurts released, which left me feeling lighter in my body.
My mum came to it also, and it was great for her to hear some of the things that I went through and for her to have a deeper understanding too. It has made us closer. The presentations by Victoria Warburton and Ingrid Langenbruch were amazing. Helping to get in touch with different areas that we might need support in.
The practitioners offering gentle hands on healing were spectacular and very nurturing in their care and the smaller group discussions helped to unpack any issues we may have been facing.
I found that although my cancer diagnosis was 12 years ago and other women attending were at different stages, some recently diagnosed, others just completing treatment we all connected with each other, this made me feel stronger and more accepting of myself. It became evident that nurturing is something that we all needed, yet have different relationships with. Even after 12 years my body was still processing some of the shame, guilt and hurts.... so to have a safe place and platform to share all of this was priceless.
I thoroughly recommend this retreat.
