Living well with Cancer & Beyond (or any illness)

Sunday, May 8 – Friday, May 13, 2022

Rather than seing cancer (or any chronic illness) as a death sentence, you are going to see it as an opportunity for reconnection.

-Zach Bush,MD

Healthy soul in a challenging body!

Whatever your physical mobility and movement capacities, the benefits of this program are unlimited.

Anyone with health challenges, chronic pain or any kind of illness will benefit from this retreat. 

You might be preparing for surgery, or perhaps you wish to optimize your life force in a time of treatments. 

                                                                                   Physical or emotional trauma can be transformed in a healthy peaceful daily life. 

This retreat is for you and maybe a friend or family member who wants to accompany you. 

 

Are you tired or looking for some joy?

Do you find it difficult to find the right medicine?

Feeling alone?

Struggling with depression or anxiety?

Difficulty sleeping?

How is your appetite?

How is your appetite for life?

Are you ready to die? Or you want to enjoy life in earth?

Do you experience conflict or turmoil with your lower self and higher self?

Do you experience physical pain? Emotional pain?

Is digesting your life experiences hard?

Do you worry about your family or your financial legacy?

Are you connected with the spiritual part inside and outside of you?

Learning specific spiritual practices is something that you can do anywhere. The mind and the inner strength can be more powerful than you ever have experienced before the diseaseor through the challenges that you are enduring right now.In our time together, we will be practicing specific techniques and strategies to bring backthe flow of your life forces.

The goal of meditation and visualization is building inner patterns for you to rebuild or optimize your physical body and beyond. Besides a peaceful heart, there is a harmonization of all your cells and you will feel a sense of enlightenment. Working with your mind in meditation will give you the opportunity to cleanse and detox your physical body, and your karma. Your biology is ready now to bring the shift of your earthly life with the support of nature, new friends, and divine beings.

Imagine practicing the appropriate technique for your own self that is also benefiting the physical and energetic environment in which you live.  As we move more deeply in the healing work you may find yourself reconnecting with spirit. Your bodies (physical and etheric “energy field “) will come together and bring stability, resilience, and sustainable feelings of inner joy despite the circumstances in your daily life.

Through meditation, Eurytmy (curative movement), yoga, vocalization, smiling and connecting with others, your chakras will get brighter and all your cells will breathe in health!

Here are some ways this week can benefit you:

  • Reconnect with yourself on a deeper level
  • Recognizing impermanence
  • Reduce anxiety and negative feelings
  • Increase feelings of health and unity
  • Improve your daily routine and focus on healthy discipline
  • Strengthen your immune system
  • Harmonize blood pressure
  • Opening your heart and exploring compassion
  • Increase your ability to manage chronic pain
  • Take time just for you 
  • Gain new tools to be peaceful instead of stressed
  • Re-enforcement of a healthy surgery or recovery mindset
  • Learning about different realms and beings
  • Healing though Forest Bathing
  • Connection with spirit

Meet your Facilitator: Sandra Lanoue

Speaker, writer, meditation and yoga instructor, therapist, group facilitator since 1995.

Sandra was living her dream of teaching, speaking, being a sister, a wife, and a mom. From dance, massage therapy, Hatha and Kundalini yoga, and Eurythmy she was super alive then suddenly she was dying. She was forced to really pause and go through a life changing experience that gave her the opportunity to reconnect with other aspects of life and evolution.

Cancer …what an unexpected gift. 

Diagnosed with level 4 terminal cancer, Sandra chose to forgo hospice care and chose instead to focus on sharing and helping others. Even paralyzed in bed she manifested the determination and courage to take all the challenges of hospital treatments as her karmic gifts, and she got closer to the divine. 

Many of the strategies and mindsets that she will share throughout this retreat were those that she practiced throughout her own journey of healing. Sandra has been back on her feet and facilitating/ teaching and sharing her inner journey. Bilingual in English and French, Sandra is helping peoples to reconnect to their higher selves to move joyfully and peacefully through the flow of life.
