Abbey Retreat Centre creates healing spaces and community for people affected by cancer.
Located in Haliburton, Ontario on a beautiful property surrounded by forests and ponds, Abbey Retreat Centre provides a variety of in-person and online retreats and programs that offer rest and renewal, companionship, and an introduction to evidence-informed practices that tend body, mind, and soul in the midst of a cancer diagnosis. Time in nature, gentle and restorative yoga, massage, expressive practices, music, healthy and delicious food, and facilitated and informal group discussions are all important and meaningful parts of our cancer support experiences.
We also invite a key support person/caregiver to attend the 4-day cancer support retreats with their loved one. We believe that healing is enhanced for everyone when caregivers are also well-cared for.
TO ENSURE THAT NO ONE WALKS ALONE THROUGH A CANCER EXPERIENCE
Thank you to everyone who donates time, energy and money to sustain the work of Abbey Retreat Centre. We rely on the support of individual donors to make our cancer support programming possible.
We ensure that the people who participate in our programs know that there are those, unknown to them, who are offering support and care during a difficult time.
Although there are no fees associated with participating in one of our retreats or online gatherings, a significant amount of funding is required to host Abbey Retreat Centre’s unique and transformative cancer support programs.
We are grateful to past participants and community members financially support the work that we do through donations, volunteering and gifts-in-kind.
