If you’d like to be added to the waiting list, please email

This innovative program will use simple stitching and other art-making invitations to explore and express feelings of transience and uncertainty in our worlds as well as ways to mend, repair and renew in a fresh way. These vehicles of expression can help to make sense of what is, by responding creatively to things that matter.

There is no cost to participate in this program.

“Take a Thread and Follow It” begins online, Friday, April 9, 10-11 am.

April 16 – 17, 2021

Opening Windows…to refresh and renew perspectives

Abbey Retreat Centre is hosting our 3rd Online Retreat. 

If you are living with cancer and are interested in joining together with others to explore the theme of ‘Refreshing and Renewing perspectives” through expressive arts, restorative yoga, breathing and meditation and small group conversation, then we invite you to join us.

Living with cancer is already an isolating experience and COVID-19 has just added to this isolation. These retreats are opportunities to talk with others on a cancer journey, receive support and encouragement and to learn some practices to help reduce stress and anxiety. Our retreats are designed to tend the whole person – body, mind, heart and spirit.
