The Mindful Way through Cancer
Has your life been impacted by cancer?
In the past? Now? Worry and uncertainty about the future?
It can be a difficult time, even years afterwards to work through these struggles. The Sanctuary is here to offer a space to explore a mindful path through these challenging life experiences. Mindfulness has the potential to address many concerns including uncertainty about the future, stress, low mood, anger, unpleasant physical symptoms such as fatigue, pain, and sleep disturbance. This four week course will explore these areas. Systematic reviews (Smith et al., 2005; Matchim & Armer, 2007) and a meta-analysis (Ledesma & Kumano, 2009) provide strong evidence supporting the use of mindfulness meditation and related practices for cancer patients and survivors.
The Mindful Way Through Cancer includes mindfulness and self-compassion practices, coping skills, group sharing and creative exercises as a way of responding to life through awareness, self-compassion and intention.
