In August 2013, I attended a retreat for cancer sufferers and survivors. I found the retreat most helpful to me, the meditation breathing and relaxation, and massage, along with group therapy sessions really helped me to understand what I was all about.
In say that, I was always a person that didn't understand my own conflicts in life. I came away from the retreat more informed, and appreciating life and other people in general.
It was better than I expected it to be, am glad I went.
Hugs and cheers

that sounds really good, what a great idea to go to something like that. It's good to meet others who have gone through or are going through some similar experiences. I went to Soiree a few weeks ago, which is the cancer council support group for women who have had or are going through breast cancer. They meet once a month in different areas and groups and they email what's on the agenda so I can see if it's something that would interest me.
Hope you are having a great weekend! In your last conversation...you mentioned you had attended a Soiree...which is a cancer council support group...haven't heard of that one...I am going to join the Port Macquarie Hastings Breast Cancer Support Group...have to travel there...but as there is no support group here...I don't mind doing that.
I have been making my own Christmas cards to send...and that keeps my mind occupied...what have you been doing of late and how are you keeping yourself?
Sending hugs and take care.

Yes the weekend was good thanks. The Soiree is for women who have had breast cancer, I go occasionally and they have some interesting topics. It's not too far to get to and nice to have a night out.
That's a good idea to make cards for Christmas, its nice to get something personalised and hand made.
I'm still trying to have a clean out, or spring clean type of thing. Slowly chipping away at things.
I'm going well in myself but life gets so busy I would like to have a holiday and do nothing for a change! I've been doing some experimental cooking lately which I enjoy. Making some home made vegetarian and vegan meals for fun. I find that enjoyable and relaxing too.
The idea of a health retreat sounds amazing! I've heard that Chi Gong or Qigong is amazing for circulation and wellbeing as well.
Has anyone tried any Chinese Herbs that helped with recovery for Chemotherapy?
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
