Renewal Retreat

This Retreat is an inspiring, relaxing, and engaging weekend with other local breast cancer survivors (thrivers).

The weekend is a respite from the stresses of daily life in a supportive environment. Sessions and activities are led by a professional facilitator, Pam Cordano (MFT), and are interactive, engaging, and reflective. Attendees can form close bonds of friendship and a network of support. There is no cost to attend the retreat.

Who should attend?

The Retreat is designed for 7 – 10 women who reside in Davis, California, have been treated for breast cancer, are 21 years or older, and are at least 12 months post diagnosis. Attendees must be able to physically participate and care for themselves during the Retreat.

Where will the retreat be held?

The Retreat will be held at the Yin Ranch in Vacaville, California.  This is a beautiful, private residence of 40 acres.  The park-like setting includes a main house and cottage with a variety of indoor/outdoor facilities and several optional activities (indoor pool/jacuzzi, indoor gym, garden, lake, scenic walking trails, bocce ball, shuffleboard, tennis, ping-pong, badminton, domesticated animal area, and a wide variety of activities).

What is the Retreat schedule?

A full agenda will be forwarded to all attendees prior to Retreat which is usually held during a weekend in September.  Dress is very casual and comfortable – you can wear loose fitting clothing like yoga pants and tennis or walking shoes.  Daily schedule may include yoga, a creative workshop, massages/facials, time in pool/jacuzzi, a small support group setting, and time to relax and enjoy meals and free time with new friends.
