The Bay Center for Spiritual Development will offer “Coming Home To Ourselves,” a restorative retreat for those who have been touched by cancer. The retreat will be held from 9:30 to 3:30 p.m. November 15 at the Bay Center, 31 Noblett Lane, Kilmarnock.
This retreat is supported by a grant from The Robert B. Lantz Foundation, said director Carol Burke.
Coming Home to Ourselves offers a restorative day for anyone who finds themselves in the midst of the storm of cancer, said Burke. This nourishing retreat is a salve for soothing the very real physical as well as emotional side effects of the cancer journey.
“Together we will have opportunities to find calmness, compassion and clarity on this ‘detour’ that cancer has imposed on our lives,” she said. “Together, in a safe and nurturing place, we will consider ways to develop a greater capacity to meet our challenges with grace, one breath, one heartbeat at a time. Without minimizing the impact that cancer has on us, we will seek to find how we can live fully and richly whatever our individual circumstances.”
