Empowered Survival is excited to offer two night/two and a half day retreats which include all meals, lodging, workshops, activities and materials. Advance registration is required, and a limited amount of spaces are available.

The cost to guarantee your space is only $100. All other costs for you to attend a retreat are donated by our very generous corporate sponsors and individual donors. (Travel expenses not included)

Through instructional and interactive sessions survivors and support partners are taught interventions that:

  • Increase healing and quality of life
  • Influence the body’s natural ability to maintain and restore balance and health
  • Sustain and nurture the spirit
  • Increase hope, joy and a positive outlook

We offer ALL FEMALE (cancer survivor and a female support partner) retreats and also COUPLES (a cancer survivor and their spouse) retreats.


We are pleased to offer a retreat for a cancer survivor and his/her spouse. Space at this retreat is limited.

If you are interested please email info@empoweredsurvival.org for more information.

The purpose of a spouse coming is to be a support partner.The spouse/partner will learn things to help the survivor and having someone by your side learning with you will help as you return home to implement these things. Hearing others experiences and feelings can help him/her understand better what the survivor is going through.

You will learn things such as :

1- How to strengthen and fortify your body against future disease and to heal from the effects of treatment.

2- Understand how the brain works and how to use it to help you heal emotionally, deal with the fear of recurrence and move beyond simply surviving to thriving.

Since all work and no play is no fun, we’ve included a few activities for the couples to enjoy, including professional photos.
