Stories from Women who have attended Infinite Boundaries Retreat

 

 

 “Infinite Boundaries has been a wonderful experience to dive into the beauty - and the deep and sometimes scary caverns – of what it means to live this life with metastatic cancer, and to know one needn’t do it alone. It’s been a blessing and a salve to the soul to participate.”

Marcelle Richards, April 2016

   

 “I came to Infinite Boundaries feeling lonely, lost and seeking shelter from a great storm. My emotions, both positive and negative, were tucked neatly away; I had wanted to sort them out, life kept getting in the way. On retreat, I stepped off the freeway of life and found respite at a wayside called Björklunden. The kindness of the Breast Cancer Recovery staff and openness of my Infinite Boundary ‘sisters’ gently pulled these emotions out, let them breathe, and then helped me to allow them to drift away. Friendships were formed and I am leaving surrounded by the kindred spirit of other women that came seeking shelter from a similar storm. I feel as if I have hit the reset button on the odometer of life and aligned my inner compass with true worth. I am now ready to continue the journey. Thank you for this amazing opportunity.”

“When your own daily life is filled with caring for others, you often times don’t realize just how low your own battery has run down.  The Infinite Boundaries Retreat allowed me to go to places I needed to go; to heal the wounds that needed healing and to spread my wings and fly again… all from a safe place!”

 2015 Testimonials

“This was an amazing opportunity to learn, share experiences with other survivors, experience a challenging outdoor experience, and address feelings that I had not had a place to address with others who truly understood, all in a beautiful setting. Everything was wonderful & supportive & I found information & resources I had not found before. What a gift!”

“Being together with a group of women who can relate to my feelings and experience with breast cancer was priceless. I learned something valuable from each lady and created memories and friendships I’ll carry with me always! I was also able to rediscover a part of myself I hadn’t even realized I’d lost.”

“I loved this!! I am so glad and fortunate that I was able to experience this!! It is wonderful that you can create a positive for people who are dealing with negative and everyone was so nice, caring, and helpful. All you ladies are great and I’m glad I had the opportunity to meet you!! I will hold this in my heart forever.”

Awesome staff!!!---they attended to our every need. Thank you. I shall treasure this healing experience forever.”
“Absolutely outstanding. Thank you everyone for your kindness and compassion. The entire retreat was an inspirational blessing to me at a time when I was giving so much to others and felt totally unappreciated. My time here with outstanding, immaculate accommodations, food, new friends, and pampering has made me feel so alive ‘for me.’ Thank you to everyone. The program was extremely well organized and we were always kept informed.”
