Last weekend I went off to cancer camp. It was a weekend retreat for people with cancer and their partners at Harmony Hill. The location is on Hood Canal in Union, Washington; a lovely environment 2.5 hours north of Portland.
I was really hoping to have some ah-ha moments at the retreat. Unfortunately, that did not exactly happen there. What I did process once I was home is – I’m not doing this cancer thing all that bad. I am quite pleased at how I have a handle on things. I also learned, as SW semi-kindly pointed out, I have a pretty low tolerance for bullish!t. I am a “get directly to the point” gal and work best with people around me who operate the same way. Both things are good to know.
I encourage others to attend the retreat if it is a reasonable distance away. Most importantly it is FREE for those who are accepted into the program. Free is a great price to pay for a weekend away. There you will be exposed to: small group chit-chats, meditation, yoga, wonderful vegetarian meals, nutrition guidance, and art and music therapy. The food was very tasty. So much so, that I regret not purchasing their cookbook.
Now, time to recover quickly before our house guests arrive on Friday. Yay for visitors!
