At Live By Living, we understand that a cancer diagnosis creates a range of challenges — physical, emotional, and spiritual, to name just a few.  Regaining your strength after treatment is difficult.  Regaining your bearings can be even harder.




Live By Living provides transformative outdoor experiences for cancer survivors and their caregivers. Our day hikes, snowshoe outings, and cancer survivor retreats are structured to help you build up your strength and stamina, to find solace in the beauty of nature, and to inspire, and be inspired by, others who are traveling along the cancer journey.






“Above all, do not lose your desire to walk. Every day I walk myself into a state of well being, and walk away from every illness. I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it.” — Soren Kierkegaard







Live By Living will offer 11 retreats for cancer survivors and caregivers in 2017. On our retreats, participants enjoy a weekend of hiking, relaxing, meeting new friends, and being pampered. Join us as we hike to beautiful cabins nestled deep in the Rocky Mountains. We’ll cook you healthy gourmet meals emphasizing locally grown, organic food. You can enjoy  yoga, Qigong, meditation, or other healing therapies (depending on the skills of the volunteers on your trip). See the survivor retreats page for more details on these life-affirming experiences. And click here to see photos from past retreats and day hikes.
