10 spaces available for a Retreat with YACN at Callanish

Our friends, Danielle and Janie, at Callanish would like to extend an invitation to the YACC community for their four-day retreat happening in October.

They said, “The theme of this four-day retreat is to learn how to accept ourselves with everything that has happened since a cancer diagnosis. We will explore issues such as healing; developing purpose; losses and changes due to cancer; hopes and fears about the future; cultivating emotional and spiritual strength.”

Partners are welcome to attend as full participants and sessions will include group process, yoga, Qigong, art therapy, relaxation, and sound.

The retreat will be held at The Brew Creek Centre which is located in a beautiful mountain setting on a creek situated on 12 acres between Squamish and Whistler, BC.

With love from all of us at YACN at Callanish,

xox Danielle and Janie


Dates: Thursday, October 11-Sunday, October 14, 2012

Janie Brown, Tessa Cherniavsky (Registered Massage Therapist), Gretchen Ladd (Registered Art Therapist), Daphne Lobb (Physician), Danielle Schroeder, and MaryLiz Smith (Musician).


The cost of the retreat is sliding scale ($100-400) per person to attend. They said trust you to pay whatever feels generous for you and there are scholarships for those who are unable to pay anything. Callanish will be subsidizing the balance needed for this retreat through donations.

You will have to cover your transportation expenses. Carpooling will be available from Vancouver. Please email or call them if you need assistance in this way.
