Nurture Your Hope
Sept. 20-21, 2012
Nurture Your Hope is an ecumenical weekend of renewal, prayer, inspiration and personal reflection especially for people dealing with the challenges of cancer in their lives. The Nurture Your Hope Retreat will be held Sept. 14 and 15, 2012, and people of all faiths were welcome.
The speakers for this retreat have had personal and professional experiences with cancer. The weekend includes information on the healing process and identify resources to assist those dealing with cancer. Patients and their caregivers also have time for separate group discussions. Time will also be available for solitude and personal reflection, small group conversation, and holistic therapy. The brochure for this year's retreat will be available in May 2013.
Nurture Your Hope is held at Chautauqua Institution. We reserved two houses on the grounds – The Catholic House, 20 Palestine Avenue and the United Methodist House located next door. The Chautauqua Institution founded in 1874 is located on beautiful Chautauqua Lake, near Jamestown, New York. Presentations were held in both houses. Overnight accommodations were available on the property in two separate buildings, which included full kitchens and private baths. Parking was available at both houses at no charge as well as no entrance fee.
