Registration is open for Retreat Yourself 2011February 7, 2011
We are pleased to announce we are ready to accept applications for the Retreat Yourself 2011 program. There will be two Retreats this year, and while you do have the option of applying to whichever you prefer, we recommend applying for the location closest to you to cut down on jet lag and travel time.
The first Retreat will be in Rocky Harbour, NL, from April 28-May 2. Rocky Harbour is on the western side of the province and is close to the beautiful Gros Morne National Park and world-renowned hiking trails. Icebergs usually start coming around that time and the venue is on the beach so there will be a lot of gorgeous scenery even if they don’t show up.
Stay up to date with Retreat East 2011 here.
The second Retreat will be in Abbotsford, BC, at the Edenvale Retreat Centre from July 28-August 1. We have held a few Retreats at Edenvale and the venue is great and the staff is awesome. It’s going to be hot in BC at the end of July but Edenvale has a lot of shady areas and an outdoor pool.
To stay informed on Retreat West, go here.
You are eligible if you were diagnosed between the ages of 18 and 35 and currently fall within that age range (roughly). You can also bring one person with you who supported you throughout your journey and/or who might gain insight into your experience by attending a Retreat. We throw out all inhibitions at Retreats and talk openly and frankly about our experiences so make sure you are comfortable telling your supporter everything before you invite them to come.
Space is limited with only about 23 spots for each Retreat so apply now to reserve your spot. The programs are free but we do request that you pay for your own travel to the Retreat (this is another good reason to pick the retreat on your side of the country). That said, we don’t want money to be a reason people miss out on this program so we offer travel assistance for those who need it.
We are still working on the program but we will keep you in the loop through this blog and the two Retreat pages.
We look forward to seeing you there!
