The Commonweal Cancer Help Program (CCHP) is an intensive week-long residential retreat for people with cancer and their significant others. Our intention is to help you discover how to live as well as possible for as long as possible. If and when the time comes to die, we hope to help you face death as you would most wish to.
During the retreat, we explore the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual dimensions of living with cancer. We engage in discovery-learning because we believe you have within you what you need for your own deepest healing. We offer six retreats per year. Each is limited to eight participants because it is the ideal size for small-group learning.
We offer a balanced exploration of choices in healing, including choices in conventional therapies, integrative therapies, pain and suffering, and death and dying. The primary focus of the retreat is on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual dimensions of deep, intentional healing.
