Living Beauties are introduced to the holistic lifestyle through workshops and classes at the Goddess Wellness Retreat. From the very first day, Living Beauties experience an immersion into a world of healing through education, nature, nourishment and sisterhood.
The purpose of Living Beauty’s activities for women is to provide them with hope for the future, and the development of skills and healthy habits that will assist them in their cancer journey. In addition, The Foundation for Living Beauty believes that a community of women can organically support one another and that women who have a strong support structure achieve better health outcomes. We believe that women empowering and encouraging one another are a critical part of healing.
The Foundation for Living Beauty offers women with cancer a comprehensive offering of wellness activities designed to assist them in the healing process. Facilitated by experts in their field, Living Beauties are provided with a vast array of programs like Yoga 4 Cancer, nutrition, mindfulness, meditation and more to help them strengthen both their bodies and their spirits. One-on-one support in energy healing, essential oils, nutritional guidance and more allow women to focus on their specific needs in a private, nurturing setting. In addition, women are provided with ongoing opportunities to develop community with other women along the same path.
All of our services, whether in-person or online, are free for our Living Beauties. Our in-person events are currently located in California but are open to women from all over the country.
At this retreat, Living Beauties are guided in gentle and restorative y4c (Yoga4Cancer) yoga. The goal of this retreat experience is aimed toward overall wellness in mind, body and spirit by way of yoga, meditation, education and nourishment. Set in a beautiful retreat environment, the Serenity Yoga Retreat is ideal for personal healing and rejuvenation.
The HeArt Healing Retreat is an intimate gathering of Living Beauties who are invited to go deep within and focus on love for themselves and in their connections with others. Living Beauties are able to explore art and personal narrative as tools for emotional wellness.
Nourishment. “It’s a word we use to describe what food can do for our body, but it’s also used to describe what we get from relationships with others, with our family and with ourselves. It can describe joys, pleasure and all things that contribute to our health and well-being and a place of belonging and fullness.” – Living Beauty Facilitator Caspar Poyck. Although the focus of this retreat is on the nourishment of our bodies through nutritional workshops, Living Beauties come away with peaceful minds and rejuvenated souls.
Day Retreats are one-day snapshots of our wellness retreats, usually located in the greater Los Angeles area. Mind, Body and Soul are awakened and strengthened so that our Living Beauties can continue their courageous journeys.
Sisterhood Support Events are another way we respond to the needs of Living Beauties. These programs give women an opportunity to share in each other’s concerns, celebrate milestones and create a sisterhood bond.
Education is a vital part of the holistic model we embody. Living Beauties are introduced to various healing modalities that beautifully complement their traditional treatment plans.
We are proud to offer a variety of support services to our Living Beauties, including financial assistance through partnerships with other organizations and referrals to additional services through our resource site and library.
