Introducing people facing challenges to the healing benefits of kayaking. Just add water.
A Weekend of Healing for Grieving Parents and Grandparents
Linda Conlin and Sharon KelleherEdward Cancer Center
Mary Anne’s message, the ceremonies, and journaling in her book “Reflections from the Red Kayak” turned this event into so much more than merely a good day on the river. This was truly a retreat from treatment, worries, and challenges, and we were able to bask in the healing power of nature with others who understand the journey.
“I had the perfect sense of peace paddling during the silence. There were times when I rested my paddle across the kayak and allowed the current to carry me while my eyes were closed. I felt vibrant and conscious yet completely relaxed and calm.”
