former guest retreat September 9 - 11

anika gee, volunteer & program coordinator

Each year former guests are invited to attend Compassion House Foundation’s former guest retreat. The retreat serves as a reunion and a safe space for learning new ideas and tools to improve life after cancer.
 
With the generous support of Syncrude, we are able to offer a second retreat weekend this year. On the weekend of September 9 - 11, 2016 attendees will have the opportunity to participate in an arts focused retreat.
 
Saturday’s sessions will take place at Wellspring Edmonton, our city’s newest cancer support organization. Dr. Marilyn Hundleby, founder of the Cross Cancer Institute’s Arts in Medicine program, will facilitate sessions in soap stone carving and colouring. Dinner Saturday evening, breakfast and additional sessions on Sunday will take place at Sorrentino’s Compassion House.
 
Shared accommodations at Campus Tower Suites are available for those who wish to stay in Edmonton on Friday and Saturday evening. The cost for attendees wishing to attend Saturday only is $20; attendees who wish to have two nights accommodation and participate in the Sunday activities is $50.
