The Labyrinth

A labyrinth is not a maze, but a walking meditation device with a single winding path from the edge to the center. There are no dead ends in a labyrinth walk and the same path is used to return to the outside.

A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. Labyrinths have long been used as meditation and prayer tools.

For many walkers the labyrinth becomes a metaphor for the journey of life. The journey inward represents the introspection or self-knowledge, and the journey outward represents the call to service, or sharing one’s gifts with the world through acts of service and love. It is a symbol that creates a sacred space and place and takes us out of our ego to "That Which Is Within."

For our one day workshop, we will explore:

• The ways in which, like life, a labyrinth is full of twists and turns, whose navigation requires a change in perspective, awareness or direction
• How to design a home practice and incorporate the labyrinth into your life
• How stress affects our selves, our families and our community, and the gifts a walking meditation provides
• Historical uses and applications of labyrinth meditation

The path symbolizes also that each of us is on a single path through his or her life, and yet each person's journey is a separate and distinct qualitative experience.

Breast Cancer: A Holistic Perspective on Risk Reduction

Next Gathering: Saturday TO BE Announced Spring 2017
Facilitator: Dr. Kim Furtado, Naturopathic Doctor
Location: The Lewes Library, in Lewes DE

All Day Retreat!
9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Free Workshop, Registration is Required

One out of every eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, with a new diagnosis occurring every three minutes.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women and the second most frequently diagnosed cancer in the United States. Only 10% of these breast cancer cases are due to inherited genetic defects. This means that the majority of breast cancer is not genetically caused and, instead, is preventable through a combination of diet, exercise and other lifestyle changes.

Join us for a one day workshop where we explore this common concern, and empower you with specific tools regarding the prevention and treatment from a naturopathic perspective.

In the workshop, we will explore:

• Basic understanding of estrogen and hormone imbalances which affect breast tissue
• Introduction to important labwork your doctor may not be doing to assess your risk level
• Comprehensive discussion of nutrition and exercise as it relates to research studies and breast cancer
• Lifestyle factors and stress reduction techniques -your first steps in creating an environment where cancers don’t flourish
• Environmental and chemical endocrine disruptors and what they do to breast tissue
• Steps you can take after treatment has completed to help reduce your risks for recurrence

FREE & Lunch is included.
