Statistics show that adults in America fear cancer more than any other health condition, and after editing our last issue on toxic chemical exposure, I don’t blame them. There’s nothing like a sometimes incurable, not-incredibly-well-understood disease to make people afraid of their own bodies and unsure of the future. Courageous Women, Fearless Living, a five day retreat at the Shambhala Mountain Center this August, aims to give women the tools and the courage to work through their daily lives with the disease and confront the unknown. Led by senior Buddhist teacher Judith Lief, Dr. Victoria Maizes, Natural Solutions editor Linda Sparrowe and yoga teacher Sofia Diaz, the retreat is open to all women who are currently battling cancer, or have in the past, or know someone who has. Scholarships are available to those who register early.
