Harmony Hill Retreat

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!

    Glad you have a good time. Yes, FREE is for me! A low tolerance for b_l_s_i- can be a good thing.

      Carolyn, Totally understand being a new commenter. The first blog I ever posted a comment on was Linnea Duff’s. I was always an internet lurker…but eventually I became a blog follower…then a blogger! Watch out, it might happen to you too. 🙂
