Upcoming Image Reborn Retreats

I just wanted to let everyone know that the Image Reborn Foundation has posted their schedule for their free retreats for the beginning of 2010.  Their mission is to provide no-cost healing retreats to women
who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. The focus is on encouraging women to reclaim their sense of personal power and to strengthen them in their journey toward healing on all levels and living fully.

January 8-10 (2010)
Open to all breast cancer survivors

February 5-7
Young Survivors
Supported by a grant from the Salt Lake City affiliate of the Susan G Komen

March 5-7
Stage IV Advanced Breast Cancer supported by a grant from the Salt
Lake City affiliate of the Susan G Komen

April 16-18
Open to all breast cancer survivors

I am not sure how many openings they have or how they decide who gets
to go.  I just registered for the February retreat.  You can register
at http://www.imagerebornfoundation.org/registration.php
I would love to have some company if I get to go.
