We are proud to have just completed our first 21 day virtual retreat of 2021 with over 80+ survivors participating! With a blend of men and women and survivors with a variety of different cancers, we spent 21 days together exploring our current paths and finding new perspectives and new beginnings - all with the aid of daily messages and calls to actions from Wind River's dynamic duo-team of Shannon & Cheryl.
At the beginning, each survivor was asked for a single word reflecting where they hoped to be at the end of this retreat. (see image). At the end of the retreat, they shared some of what they gained from this experience, many of them reflecting on the power and importance of taking time for ourselves. Here are a few additional final reflections:
- I'm feeling blessed as I focus on my spiritual, mental and emotional health and well being...
- It was a gift to connect with Wind River and to regain my footing throughout this experience. It helped me become more grounded in my positive attitude, strength and courage. It was just the boost that I needed!
- I feel like I have tool box FULL of ideas, projects, crafts, words, videos... to use for the past 21 days and also the rest of 2021 (and all future days) to add joy and hope to our lives; especially during the pandemic.
- I HAVE HOPE!
