It is the mission of Abbey Retreat Centre to support people living with cancer in making life-enhancing  choices for physical mental emotional and spiritual wellbeing.  We do this in partnership with other people and organizations and the following will list some of the online connections you could explore with them.

Tuesdays ‘Relax and Restore Yoga’ Through link at the Integrative Cancer Centre, Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, with Retreat Centre Yoga therapist Miriam Patterson

I was thinking of making a donation to ARC. How does my money get used?

We are grateful to everyone that donates their energy, time, and money to support the Abbey Retreat Centre. We make every effort to keep operating costs low and focus on allocating the funds we receive to support people on their cancer journey. We need your help and support to continue to offer our retreats to participants free of charge.  Click here to make  secure donation.
