Introduction

We call them life’s Ds, whether it’s a diagnosis, divorce, death, depression or disaster everyone faces a significant challenge at some point. If you’re finding it difficult to cope, are feeling depressed, stressed, anxious or facing a major health challenge, our Healing Your Life program can make a profound difference in your life. We provide many practical strategies, techniques and tools to increase physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing and encourage you to implement the ones that feel right for you.

For over 20 years the Quest for Life Foundation has provided programs which inspire and support people living with the challenges of depression, grief, loss, anxiety, cancer, chronic illness and pain.
Our 5 day residential programs are conducted at the Quest for Life Centre in Bundanoon, in the beautiful Southern Highlands of NSW. The residential aspect of the retreats allows you to focus on your own life without distraction and learn valuable life skills and strategies for healing and peace.
 
The role of meditation, living mindfully, taking charge of our thoughts and feelings, practical strategies to communicate better, learning to respond rather than react, and managing our lives more skilfully are amongst the topics discussed.

We offer practical strategies to manage aspects of cancer and other chronic illnesses as well as dietary guidelines. Partners and loved ones are encouraged to attend programs too. Program content is always tailored to the participants and addresses practical aspects of living well with challenging circumstances and instruction on how to create an environment for healing.

“It was a practical experience of support; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Good scientific information with practical instructions for application into daily life. It was a non-dogmatic approach for us to make our own choices.” Harry

“My husband and I made the journey to Quest in a state of exhaustion. Our daughter died a couple of years ago and the impact of her unexpected loss had eroded ourselves and our sense of "us". The warmth, care, and love we experienced at Quest was phenomenal, and the skills we learned are very much part of our day-to-day lives. My advice? Make Quest a priority, make the commitment – you will not regret it.” Karen
