New Cancer Day Retreat Nutrition, Mindfulness, Inspiration and Support for Women in Remission


OUR Retreat, the boutique retreat company with wellness and nutrition at its heart, is pleased to announce the launch of its first Cancer Day Retreat for women, held on Saturday 30thMarch in collaboration with The Rook. At the free-of-charge event, guests can expect to meet like-minded people, share their stories and experiences, receive motivational talks and enjoy a menu of transformational activities, from yoga and meditation, to sound therapy and makeup and beauty advice.

Lisa Carolan, Founder of Our Retreat and Jemma Frizzell of The Rook wanted to create an uplifting space where those in remission can rest, recharge and feel comfortable, supported and encouraged. Both women have been personally affected by cancer and understand first-hand how detrimental the disease can be for patients and their loved ones. With that, the retreat has been carefully curated to show how nourishing the body and feeding the soul through diet, exercise, mindfulness and positive relationships can contribute to an overall sense of wellbeing.

Hosted in the newly-refurbished The Rook venue, in the heart of the West Sussex countryside, the Cancer Day Retreat will begin with a fresh welcome juice and nutrition advice from vegan nutritionist and food influencer, Feed Me Mumma who will share her top tips on how to make quick, healthy meals. Following an inspirational talk on life after cancer with a special guest speaker, and yoga, Pilates and movement therapy with both Kate Lister and Jade McClernon, guests can enjoy a peaceful walk in nature to reflect, before meditation and sound therapy with masters of high frequency Tim Wheather and Cherub.

There will also be makeup tutorials from a make-up artist, using leading beauty brand Urban Decay cosmetics – focused primarily on eyebrows and lashes – where guests can leave feeling empowered, and with a new found self-confidence.

With proven success in hosting unforgettable and transformational wellbeing retreats across Europe, Our Retreat founder Lisa alongside her good friend and now business partner Jemma hope that this new Cancer Day Retreat will be the first of many; as they hope to help, inspire and educate those living with cancer on the importance of putting yourself first and taking care of your mind, body and soul.

Our Retreat will host the ‘Cancer Day Retreat’ on the 30th March 2019 at The Rook Retreat venue, West Sussex. Tickets will be free of charge and all-inclusive of meals and activities.
