It’s called the ‘After the Bell nature retreat’ and it takes place Fri Sept 22 – Sat Sept 23 2017

The Cancer Foundation developed the two-day overnight nature retreat for women who have completed their cancer treatment. The ‘ringing of the bell’ marks the completion of active treatment and ‘After the bell’ marks the weeks and months after the treatment ends, which can be an unexpectedly challenging time for cancer survivors.

The retreat includes group coaching on coping with stress, time management, brain fog, coping with long term side effects, body image, sexuality, decision making, return to work, fear of the future, moving forward with meaning, reconciling relationships, nutrition, and the opportunity to explore fitness, yoga, art, meditation, and more.

The overnight ‘After the Bell Nature Retreat’ will take place at Elements luxury tented camp and nature spa in Renfrew. Carved out of the wilderness, they offer luxury tented camping, wholesome cuisine and unique spaces in which to relax, re-invigorate and be inspired.

Space is limited for 13 people, with a cost of 360$ per participant. Register by calling Joelle at 613-247-3527 or e-mailing her jperrier@ottawacancer.ca or filling out the form below to be contacted. (If this date or venue doesn’t suit you, we will be hosting the next “After The Bell Cancer Retreat” (no overnight stay) located at the Cancer Foundation on Alta Vista Drive. It will be offered on Friday, November 3rd and Saturday, November 4th and the cost will be 220$.)
