Rest, Connect and Renew

This retreat is 4 days (Thursday afternoon – Sunday afternoon) and is hosted at our retreat centre in beautiful Haliburton, ON.

This retreat is for people living with a cancer diagnosis, as well as their key support person.

This cancer support retreat offers opportunities for rest and renewal, companionship, and an introduction to evidence-informed practices that tend the body, mind, and soul.

Time in nature, gentle and restorative yoga, massage, expressive practices, music, delicious and nutritious food, and facilitated and informal group conversation are all elements of what makes this retreat unique and transformative.

Your application automatically places you on our general waitlist. Please watch for an email (or phone call) from a staff member to follow up.

After a Retreat
After the retreat, many people stay connected with the Abbey Retreat Centre community by attending an online program, receiving newsletters, donating to help others experience a cancer support program, or joining us for community events.

Disclaimer: No medical assessment or treatment is provided by Abbey Retreat Centre staff or volunteers during any of our retreats or programs.
