Arts and healing retreat enters 10th season

The Adirondack Arts and Healing Retreat begins its tenth season this summer. The annual gathering at Great Camp Sagamore for women with cancer and chronic illness uses music, visual arts, yoga, writing, storytelling and nature walks to help women deal with their disease. Women at the Arts and Healing retreat say the rural setting of Great Camp Sagamore helps them slow down and focus. There are two retreats this summer, in July and September. Retreat co-founder and storyteller Fran Yardley tells Todd Moe that this year also marks a new chapter; the organization has a new name, "Creative Healing Connections, Inc." and a website. For more information, call Fran at 518-359-9324, or Sagamore at 315-354-5311.  Go to full article
