Thriving after Cancer Doesn’t have to be a Struggle

 In this intensive four-day transformational retreat, Edivia Navarro, director of the game-changing film TURN OFFF CANCER / TURN ON  LIFE, will take you through your own de-construction and re-construction, guided through your own extraordinary transformative chrysalis from which you will emerge into an entirely new level of yourself healthier, happier and wholesome.


You know you’re ready. You know that now is the time, and you are joining this course not because you need more help, but because you want to become the one you came here to be. No time to waste. You only need the container where to undergo the transformation, the chrysalis, and the midwife that takes care and protects the cocoon and attends the work of nature. The place to be born and the tribe that receives you into your newborn possibility.

You have a vision of yourself radiant with an inner glow, sharing with the world the fruits of your life, contributing to enhance the lives of the people you love. Cancer has made you aware of the  poignantly beautiful and fragile life  and you are starting to savoring the privilege of walking and playing in this moment of time.

This new life is possible for you and you are the one that can create it. And that creation doesn’t have to include so much suffering and anxiety on the face of uncertainty.

Unpredictable transformation from the inside out!

Your heart, mind and your body have so much wisdom and you can learn to listen to them and tap into unknown intelligence and sensibilities and develop strengths capabilities and potential you didn’t know you had within yourself.

You have so much to give, so much to enjoy, a new life to unfold in front of you.

You are ready to do the work and find out what you have to clear and release physically, emotionally, mentally so you can have the life you know is your own: a life blessed with love, vibrant health and meaningful contribution.


We are not destined to have cancer and suffer…how came we ended up in this predicament?


If you are like the hundreds of people diagnosed with cancer I have worked with, you probably had done a very serious search already, you have done a lot of development and transformation already. Yet somehow, the kind of experience you are looking for and you know it is possible, eludes you, or doesn’t last and you are left deeply frustrated and disappointed.

I can imagine your family and friends either encouraging or discouraging you from what they may consider either an empty pursuit or an obligation that you cannot postpone. And you are tired of receiving unsolicited advice. You probably feel confused, unable to figure out why some people die and other with no effort surf over the stormy waters of cancer. You may be wondering if you have done something wrong and you have missed totally the point…or most frightening of all, that there is something really wrong you have done and you deserve to be punished.

It cannot be more natural to have those feelings; it is just only too human to be confronted with all our unresolved issues when we are facing our unavoidable mortality.  We are all going to die, but most people can forget about this until a life threatening illness shows up on their door like un uninvited guest.

The important thing is that no matter how uncomfortable and dark all those unfinished business may seem to you, you have the power to change them. From now on you can go about to create a new life for yourself and your loved ones in a way that is deeply satisfying, enjoying every step of the way and feeling safe and protected in your very cocoon of transformation and accompanied by the community that will celebrate your metamorphosis.


Imagine enjoying the life you always knew it was yours to have. Can you imagine how different your life will look when you listen to the message of the cancer and implement the changes cancer is asking from you to restore your body mind back to health?

Maybe you will

  • Savor the little things of life, treasuring every moment: sunsets, conversation, babies, books and even the line at the supermarket…all of the sudden daily life is more fulfilling and pleasurable!
  • Feel the aliveness, freedom, integrity and coherence that generates living each moment in alignment with your deepest values
  • Know that you always have the necessary resources to go through anything.
  • Trust your intuition, body wisdom and inner guidance to make the best possible choices moment to moment.
  • Discover new depths of happiness and intimacy with yourself, friends and family.
  • Experience the peace that comes with self-acceptance and the deep nourishment of knowing that the universe conspires to support our dreams.
  • Feel that life has your back and you can move confidently toward the realization of your goals as you relate with the world in a way that makes possible the co-creation of your wildest dreams.
  • Feel the relief of the heavy burden, of your resistance to life, being lifted away.
  • Live the magic and the miracle making of a mind that is aligned with a vision and a purpose
  • Feel the invigorating energy, the exhilarating excitement of a meaningful and generous life.
  • Go every night to bed in awe and in gratitude for a day full of opportunities of being yourself and blessing the world with your presence.





All it is required is that you take a stand, where you dare to courageously say, “I want to live my true life. I choose to live co-creating an awesome Life”.

And if you are ready to make this commitment to yourself, I am ready to help you. I can guide you step-by-step through the heroic adventure of self-discovery and re-invention.

Together we can create a sacred space for inner and outer transformation and I will be the happy and honored midwife that receives your when you come out of your protective cocoon all dressed up in your brand new, shiny, colorful tender new life.

I will provide the information, tools, techniques, procedures and catalyst you need to:

  • Identify what gives you life and what kills you
  • Release patterns that keep you entrenched in a past that keeps repeating itself in spite of all your efforts,
  • Draw a map for the journey
  • Develop an integral practice that creates the synergy that sustains health at the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels
  • Create an extraordinary life filled up with extraordinary moments

In a sacred space we will do dance, ritual, poetry and journal writing, painting, vision quest, shamanic visioning, singing, theater of the imagination, guided visualization, heart awakening, somatic body work, physical embodiment of our newborn identities, work and play in dyads, small groups and big circle, party and celebration, sweat and prayer. All the verbal and nonverbal, conscious and unconscious, artistic and scientific, spiritual and social dimensions of your body, heart, mind and soul brought together to produce the simple miracle of a new beginning: JUST   TO…

In this place of no longer and not yet, in the in-between state we will go together though transitions and thresholds to turn off cancer and switch on our lives.

During this rite of passage  we inquire individually and collectively into the meaning or message of the illness we want to cure from.

Then we learn to inhabit and integrate the understanding received into the new way of being




Psychology and perennial wisdom from all traditions all over the world recognize this in between as a fragile but powerful situation, a time and place when uncertainty and ambiguity reign and exciting possibilities are looming behind the curtains.

You can think of me as a powerful and fertile midwife of the un-manifest potentials of your life, assisting the birth of all that wants to be born in you. I create the safe space where this is possible though, care, deep listening and the magic of changing our mindset.

I receive a group of caterpillars, heavily compressed under the weigh of their own unborn dreams in a confining space that has to be broken open into the open air and I facilitate the birth of an amazing batch of butterflies, each one with their own beautiful colors, pollinizing the world with their dance and multiplying its beauty

During the Retreat new perspectives shed light on core issues that may be addressed and transformed. In order to do this, bring an open mind, and the intention to grow into your greatest possibilities of health and happiness. Bring your intelligence, your intuition, your body and your own great heart and spirit. Be prepared for miracles!

We all can be living & loving co-creators of reality, generating the flourishing of our life wherever we are, whomever we are with.
