In October 2012, a dream was realized for two dynamic ovarian cancer survivors: Anne Tonachel and Robin Bray. Their dream was to provide a restorative retreat for other ovarian cancer survivors in the northeast. When the amazing Kennedy family of Camp Kieve and The Kennedy Learning Center provided the retreat space (in honor of a family member with ovarian cancer), this restorative retreat was born.
Day Three: We have another day of gentle awakenings with Sunrise Qi Gong with Suzanne Brownell. Another powerful session with Vivien Weiss entitled, "How Cancer Has Changed Me Inside and Out, For Better or Worse". We began a session called "Earth Loom Talk" with Susan Merrill. Some participated in "Blissful Boot Camp and Outdoor Hike" with Suzanne. We take our group photo. In the afternoon, the TTT campers take to the kayaks and enjoy a gorgeous autumn day.
