Our Story

Cancer is one of life’s greatest challenges.

Women living beyond breast cancer is on the increase and this is great news. As a result, this has created a large and growing number of women with unique and unmet needs. Once treatments are over and women embark on their healing journey, they look to see how they can take charge of their health, what it means to survive and how to carry on with their lives. There is a great need for education and support to help breast cancer survivors navigate the challenges related to their healing journey.

Dragonfly’s philosophy embraces all modalities of approaches to wellbeing, we’ve developed retreats that bring together various ancient wisdom practices and modern day knowledge to create a healing environment that supports and empowers women touched by cancer. Our extraordinary team of experts will share their wisdom and provide a safe and supportive setting for the Dragonfly Wellness Retreat program. It is grounded in the contemplative arts of mindfulness and yoga, empowered by knowledge and practical information about health and healing and nourished by community and shared experience. By integrating body, mind and spirit, we will discover ways to meet the totality of our experience directly and courageously.

Our mission is to offer women affected with breast cancer an opportunity to focus on strengthening the body, rekindle the spirit, replenish the mind and connect with others who share a similar journey. Dragonfly Wellness Retreat is a comprehensive weekend program tailored specifically to the practical, informational and emotional needs of breast cancer survivors who have completed their treatments. It provides a healing oasis to equip women with knowledge, tools and support needed to thrive on their journey to wellness.
