Our Three-Day Cancer Retreats

There’s nothing quite like our signature three-day cancer retreats. We offer individuals affected by cancer time to reflect and explore the physical, emotional and spiritual challenges of their diagnosis. Through group sessions and activities such as yoga, meditation, poetry and art, our compassionate faculty provide self-care tools and practical resources to facilitate healing and wellbeing. Caregivers and companions are welcome. Thanks to generous donors, lodging, meals and curriculum are provided at full scholarship.

Please only enroll if you are able to attend all three days of a cancer retreat. Partial attendance is not permitted. Our retreats primarily are held mid-week, only a small number are held on weekends throughout the year. We offer our retreats mid-week so that we can offer our facilities to rental guests, and that income assists in keeping these retreats offered at a full scholarship to you!

Notice: Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Harmony Hill is suspending registrations for our ON-SITE Cancer Retreats until it is safe to resume them. You are welcomed to join our email list and complete a Cancer Retreat Interest Form which will allow us to invite you to apply in the future. If you are currently enrolled in a retreat, our program staff will notify you of any changes to your registration.

On-site Cancer Retreat Interest Form

A Harmony Hill Cancer Retreat is right for you:

  • If you have been diagnosed with cancer and you are under the care of a health professional.
  • If you are able to walk short distances (or pivot transfer to a golf cart without assistance).
  • Provide your own transportation to Harmony Hill.
  • If you have not attended a Harmony Hill cancer retreat previously.
  • Because your companion is also welcome.
  • Because you can afford it. Harmony Hill provides cancer retreats at no charge. (There is a $25 application processing fee for each application submitted).

Agreements you make in deciding to apply to attend a retreat:

  • Participate as fully as your health allows in the various retreat offerings.
  • Plan to attend the full retreat which starts at 11:00 am on the first day, and completes at 3:00 pm on the third day.
  • Companions will participate with their primary participant as fully as their health allows.
  • Recognize that each person’s choices around treatment, wellness, spirituality, and healing are unique and diverse.
  • Everyone attends with a respectful acceptance for the spiritual beliefs of others, without any attempt to proselytize others.
  • Everyone attends with a heart and mind that is supportive, but not trying to fix others or promote a particular treatment modality.

The application process for each person – participant or companion:

  • Complete the registration form via the link above. (This will trigger a welcome email with links for the full questionnaire.)
  • Complete the full questionnaire. (This is where you’ll indicate your preferred dates.)
  • If you need a waiver for the application fee, please email us at programs@harmonyhill.org

Disclaimer: Harmony Hill is a non-medical retreat center. No medical assessment or treatment is provided by Harmony Hill staff, faculty or volunteers during any of our retreats or programs.

Metastatic Cancer Retreat

Metastatic cancer is one which has spread from the primary site of origin into a different area(s) of the body. Because metastatic patients face a unique set of emotions and challenges, we created this retreat for them to be in community with others on a similar journey of hope and healing. Caregivers and companions are welcome. Thanks to generous donors, lodging, meals and curriculum are provided at no cost.

In 2017, 28 percent of Harmony Hill cancer retreat participants (excludes companions) had metastatic disease. All are welcome in our General Cancer Retreats; those with metastatic disease now have an additional option to consider.


Join us for our two-day Virtual Cancer workshop offered by Harmony Hill Faculty via Zoom. Currently, these retreats are only offered for those who have experienced a cancer diagnosis. Please only register if you are able to commit to attending all four sessions over the two days. There is a $25 administrative fee to participate, however, if you have financial barriers, please use the coupon code NOFEE to by-pass the payment portion of the registration.

Below are a few quotes from participants:

“Thank you! It was so wonderful to learn about these many resources, be uplifted by the inspiring poetry, and meet supportive people to feel community – especially during this pandemic time. Heartfelt gratitude!”

“I so appreciated that this was focused on each of us as individuals – not talking about our cancer or our families was really liberating”

“This was a fantastic venue/place to meet some incredible people. Thank you for the opportunity.”

Over the two-day workshop, you will have two 2-hour sessions each day led by expert faculty; one in the morning, (10:00 AM-Noon*) and one in the afternoon, (1:30 PM – 3:30 PM*)

All sessions schedules are in PST. Registration required.

*Actual times may vary
