Wind River

Wind River is a non-for-profit organization in Tryon, NC founded by Dave Pschirer & Shannon Carney in 2007. They provide a variety of cancer wellness support services to men and women with any type of cancer.  What is most amazing is their emphasis of supporting people facing a recurrence of cancer or with advanced stages of cancer.  They are best known for their unique four-day Cancer Wellness Retreats emphasizing healing time away with fellow survivors at their peaceful property on a beautiful creek.  In a safe, tranquil setting, men and women living with cancer are able to slow down, learn new tools to help reduce stress, tap into their creativity, and connect with other survivors leading to increased quality of life.  Best of all, these Cancer Wellness Retreats and Outreach Programs are totally FREE OF CHARGE to survivors.

 

Karma yoga (Sanskrit: कर्म योग), (also known as Buddhi Yoga) or the “discipline of action” is based on the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita, a sacred Sanskrit scripture of Hinduism. Of the four paths to realization, Karma Yoga is the science of achieving perfection in action. Selfless action and service to others are emphasized in this type of yoga. Karma Yoga is selfless service unto humanity. If you have a favorite charity, that you would like to see Be Yoga feature, please email Michelle Seymour, michelle@beyogaclt.com.

Our karma yoga program is a great way to spread love in our community and make a meaningful difference to those who need it most. In fact, during this time last year our karma partner was our very own Molli Richwagen.  At the time she was bravely fighting pancreatic cancer, and made a difference to so many of us with her loving kindness and grateful heart.  Sadly, last month Molli passed on.  However, last fall Molli had the opportunity to attend a retreat at Wind River Cancer Wellness Retreat Center, and she requested they be one of our karma partners.  It is a humble privilege to honor her sweet request.
