Living Journeys understands that frequently after diagnosis, the focus of life, and the focus of those closest to them, becomes the cancer itself and all things related to its affects and treatment.
Treatments take a toll both physically and emotionally. Whether your treatments require consideration in your abilities or emotionally you need a reason to get back out for an adventure, Living Journeys Days are tailored to meet your specific goals and interested.

We hope to offer this workshop again. If you would be interested in attending please email us & mention the Horses & Reflection.
Horses & Reflection:
Horses have a remarkable capacity to see us exactly as we are and to offer us just what we need when we're experiencing a challenging time. They hold space for us to fully experience what we're feeling in the moment and to explore what we need to uncover our innate resilience. This workshop offers participants an opportunity to slow down, come into the present moment and explore the power of connection with horses and with nature. After enjoying time with the horses, we will create space to explore some quiet journaling and/or art to reflect on the experience.
Write Your Way into Healing:
a journaling workshop
The workshop, led by local writer and teacher, Joanne Reynolds, is designed to use journaling and creative writing as a pathway to resolving emotional wounds received as part of the cancer diagnosis, treatment, and recovery process. This workshop is open to patients, survivors, and supporters, such as family members.
We plan to offer this workshop again in the near future. If you are interested, please email us and let us know.
For the third year in a row Living Journey will be bringing StoryCenter to Crested Butte for a three-day workshop this spring. StoryCenter has helped over 20,000 people conceive and create their first digital story. The genre, a two to four minute short video - deeply personal, elegantly presented - is a powerful form of communication. The end result will be ten digital stories made by community members affected by cancer. The authors may choose to share these stories so that observers may be inspired to take action, find new empathy, and grow stronger together as a community.
If you would like to create a story PLEASE contact us!
