The Noble Circle Project was founded by eight Dayton, Ohio, women who wanted to explore complementary healing methods during their journey with cancer. These women learned from Anne Burns, who conducted the first Noble Circle retreat in 2002 in California. The eight co- founders brought back to Dayton the best parts of Anne’s retreat and went on to build The Noble Circle Project as it is today

Since 2004, The Noble Circle Project has continued to provide the spring and fall Core Program to 30 new women per year, as well as support over 250 women in the Alumnae Program. Begun as a grassroots organization under the umbrella of the Wellness Connection of Dayton, Ohio (reorganized in 2011 as the Cancer Support Community Western Ohio), The Noble Circle Project is now an independent, volunteer-driven non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) status.

The Noble Circle Project was named for Allie Noble, a woman who lived in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1830. Purportedly, her breast cancer surgery was the first to be documented in medical records. She died from an infection a few months following her surgery, but she was a pioneer – doing things no one else had done for health and wellness. The Noble Circle Project carries on Allie Noble’s courage in embarking on a different path for our healing journey.

The Noble Circle Project is committed to creating an intimate and caring community of women thriving beyond cancer by bringing hope, inspiration, empowerment, and well-being through programs focusing on nutritional education, complementary energy techniques, and peer support.

While always being true to our origins, The Noble Circle Project will be recognized as a strong, growth-oriented, sustainable organization that helps women, who have been given a cancer diagnosis, by providing cutting-edge, quality programming; member participation; and fellowship.

The Noble Circle Project New Sister Program begins with an expense-free Weekend Retreat that is located in a pastoral setting with few distractions from the outside world.

 

The in-depth retreat weekend is followed by 10 weeks of Thursday evening classes. Each woman tracks her own progress, practices new lifestyle skills, and comes together with others in her small group who face the same issues and questions. Classes are held at One Lincoln Park in Kettering, Ohio.

 

Throughout the New Sister Program Retreat and 10-Week Classes, women living with a cancer diagnosis learn about:

 

Pillar 1 – Nutrition Education

Pillar 2 – Complementary Energy Techniques

Pillar 3 – Peer Support

 

New Sister Program dates for 2016 are: Spring, March 11-13, Thursdays, March 17-May 19 and Fall, September 9-11, Thursdays, September 15-November 17.

 

Each summer, the Sisterhood is invited to attend a relaxing Summer Retreat, where we continue to develop our understanding of the Three Pillars as we strengthen our bonds of friendship and support.

The Sisterhood also enjoys annual events with family and friends,
