Retreats & Outdoor Experiences for Cancer Survivors

Courageous Women, Fearless Living:

A Retreat for Women Dealing by Cancer

Shambhala Mountain Center, Red Feather Lakes, CO 80545


"Cancer is one of life’s greatest challenges. In this retreat, we learn how to navigate this potentially confusing, treacherous, and heartbreaking terrain. Our extraordinary team of experts will share their wisdom in integrative medicine, Tibetan Buddhist healing, meditation, yoga, art, ritual, and community building, providing a multi-dimensional roadmap for a transformative journey. Integrating body, mind, heart, and soul, we will discover ways to meet the totality of this experience directly and courageously. If you have a current or past diagnosis, or are the caregiver or loved one of a woman with cancer, join us!"

Live by Living



"Live By Living provides transformative outdoor experiences for cancer survivors and their caregivers. Our day hikes, snowshoe outings, and cancer survivor retreats are structured to help you build up your strength and stamina, to find solace in the beauty of nature, and make new friends with people who understand what you’ve been through. We’re cancer-based, not cancer-focused.

​Live By Living provides these activities free of charge. We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization."
