Remember all the times during treatment when I said I might just take off and go to the Bahamas instead? Check this out: Selah Sail. (So it’s the British Virgin Islands. Close enough.) Oh I wish I’d known about this in time: Feb 2008 would have been a perfect time to go. The organization is new, here in Portland, and I found out about it through a counselor when I was on another retreat out at Menucha (sponsored by Cancer Care Resources). If you hear of other healing retreats, please let me know. I’m on the list for Casting for Recovery, and Harmony Hill was wonderful.
I have to say that I love having meals prepared for me (happy to help as well), and eating in a social setting. And walking to meals, and sitting by fires. And being outside. All very relaxing, on a deep level.
If one has to deal with the ickiness of cancer, there have got to be perks, right?! 🙂 🙂
