Rainbow Valley is inspired by Johanna MacVicar who passed away in 2005 following a lengthy battle with leukaemia. She believed that diet, stress, exercise and complementary therapies all influenced her health and had a significant role in controlling her condition and future. Since Rainbow Valley’s inception in 2012 we have been delivering Johanna’s vision through our free to attend residential courses and provision of information.
LOVED this course. Edward was so informative but not full of jargon. He made me understand Mindfulness really easily. He has such a talent of making you feel relaxed at times, then make you cry with laughter the next!
He took time for each and every one of us and genuinely cared about how we were feeling. Just wished it was longer!
As usual, I came away feeling invigorated and loved
Given that my recent diagnosis was the second time for me, I have been under the “cancer care umbrella for a decade now and in all that time, I have never once been given the opportunity to attend anything like the experience we had with Rainbow Valley. This is particularly surprising as my cancer receives more publicity and funding than any other cancer type in the world! I do receive a magazine twice a year from one charity and have attended a talk on fertility issues and been given details of local mindfulness classes. Whilst I am sure invaluable support and advice is provided for many people by the bigger charities, this has not been my experience. We were astounded with the level of support and advice we received from Rainbow Valley, especially as they funded my husband to attend also. The 3 days we attended their seven steps to health course benefited us more than all other help collectively over the last 11 years. It is amazing that a relatively young charity without the benefit of the huge marketing budgets enjoyed by the high profile charities are able to achieve this.
I really enjoyed the whole course in general, I felt everything had its place on the course and it was well planned out. Karen Phil & Betty were fabulous and took such great care of us. Also wee Ann and the chef were fabulous. We both left on an absolute high. Thanks again.
I learned so much about myself and my illness, I also learned about how my life affects my body. Amazing eye opener
I wasn’t sure what the future held for me, now I know that I can directly influence my future by living well and I have the tools to deal with anything the future holds for me. Thank you!
