Nora Larson, BS, RYT

Nora is a faculty member at Harmony Hill where she facilitates cancer retreats. She lives in Portland, Oregon where she practices as an oncology social worker with a special interest in palliative care; she has worked in oncology for six years. Her approach to facilitating retreats and working in oncology is informed by her own personal experience with a loved one on a journey with cancer. It was this experience of caring for a loved one with cancer that brought her to Harmony Hill as a place of healing and grace. Her early work and service with people facing a cancer diagnosis was graciously encouraged and informed by experiences at Harmony Hill. Nora is inspired by the vulnerability, the strength, the hope, and the authenticity she is privileged to witness in her daily work with people navigating cancer; they are her teachers.  She is also inspired by nature and her young curious spunky daughter.
