Cultivate joy and wellness at our Women's Retreat

Empower yourself with practical skills for creating and sustaining joy and wellness at our Ease into Spring Women’s Retreat for cancer survivors May 12-14 at Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort. Most of us live braced mentally, emotionally, and physically against constant signals of stress in our day-to-day lives. It is essential to periodically retreat from the rigors of daily life to allow ourselves to rest, reset, and learn new skills that will support resilience and create a more peaceful, healthy, and joyful life. Neuroscience research suggests that feeling happy and joyful will create and strengthen neural pathways that support a positive outlook on life.

This three-day retreat at Leavenworth’s Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort empowers women who have received a cancer diagnosis to embrace survivorship as a life practice by teaching practical skills for cultivating joy, health, and whole-person wellness in day-to-day life. Through journaling, creative expression, gentle movement, and educational talks, EASE Cancer Foundation’s faculty will guide each participant in creating their own personalized, sustainable wellness plan.

Registration is open online now and includes dinner on Friday and Saturday, breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, and all supplies. Email for more information.
