Cancer survivors continue wellness journey at retreat

Art therapist Paula Sandefur discusses how cancer survivors can create their own vision for a healthier life.

The Maui Cancer Wellness Retreats hosted a day retreat for Maui cancer survivors on Nov. 9 at Trinity Episcopal Church by-the-Sea in Kihei. Attendees from the past three retreats were invited to continue their wellness journey with sessions led by Dr. Bridget Bongaard, Wendy MacDonald and Paula Sandefur. Topics included relaxation through therapeutic self-hypnosis, creating a vision board for “healing from within” and updated information on probiotics and nutrition.

The Maui Cancer Wellness Retreats is a Maui-based nonprofit that has provided full scholarships for cancer survivors from Maui County to attend three-day and one-day retreats since 2017.
