Quest learning

Residential Programs

The Quest for Life Foundation provides interactive group programs to educate, empower and encourage people living with the challenges of cancer, chronic illness, grief, trauma, anxiety and depression.

Our programs recognise that unexpected and unthinkable things can happen to all of us. With an understanding of the latest scientific research into neuroscience and epigenetics, as well as research on evidence-based health and healing modalities and neuroplasticity – the ability to change our brain through conscious choice – our acclaimed programs help you to find peace of mind and healing. They encompass a holistic approach to physical, mental, emotional and social wellbeing.

Set in Bundanoon, in the beautiful Southern Highlands NSW, where you can focus on your own life without distraction and learn valuable life skills and strategies.
