Getting Back into the Swing of Life After Cancer

Nonprofit Grass Lake Sanctuary (GLS) will host a Women’s Wellness Retreat for Breast Cancer Survivors from July 19 through 21. Christine Morgan, GLS women’s wellness retreat coordinator, says, “For nine years, women that have recovered from breast cancer have been learning life-balancing skills and experiencing the transformative power of connecting heart-to-heart with other cancer survivors at Grass Lake Sanctuary’s Women’s Wellness Retreats. The retreats provide a weekend of exploration and renewal on the stunning 145-acre Grass Lake Sanctuary (GLS) nature preserve. Participants will rejuvenate and de-stress through heart-opening experiences of yoga, art, Nia, healing massage, healthy food and peer-to-peer support circles, all amidst the beauty of nature.”

She says, “In my work with breast cancer survivors, many women have shared that after the cancer treatment is complete, they feel disconnected from who they once were. These retreats are about helping participants connect in deeply supportive ways, releasing trauma and re-entering their lives with ease and enthusiasm.”


Cost is $250. Location: Grass Lake Sanctuary, Manchester, Michigan. To register or donate, call 734-408-1552 or visit Scholarships will be offered as funds become available.
