In time, Wellspring becomes your life coach and it never lets you down.
by Nevena, Wellspring Member
I thank you!
If it were not for you, there would be no me.
You brought sunshine to my rainy days.
You gave me comfort when my soul was weeping.
You quenched my thirst for understanding and love.
You accepted me when I refused my own self.
Therefore, you Wellspring grow and expand, but remember that your growth
is not measured by the size of your walls, but by the depth of your loving
Being diagnosed with cancer is like being sentenced to death for a crime you did not commit. The echo of this ominous word shatters your whole life in a fraction of a second. You find yourself isolated and in fear, sitting alone on a river bank. Everyone else, your family, your friends, the whole world is across on the other side. You feel the salty river of tears suffocating you. What will happen to your children? You'll never see the sun again. There is no escape from such a sentence.
The only bridge that can take you across surely and securely from this prison is Wellspring. Just like spring, when the weather begins to get warmer and the leaves and colourful flowers start to appear, so too Wellspring melts away the snowy and icy feelings of excruciating despair and takes you across to the warmth and vibrancy of the other side. This heavenly place, where goodness, kindness and love spring from every corner, gives you a renewed sense of strength and hope. Nestled cozily in the comforting and soothing atmosphere of a freshly painted and elegantly decorated building, Wellspring spreads the only message that comes from its purity of heart and that is: "You deserve the best and you are worthy of healing."
From compassionate staff, members and volunteers to the pleasant smell of freshly brewed coffee and chocolate chip cookies, the uniqueness of Wellspring also lies in the variety of programs offered to patients, their family members, and professional caregivers - absolutely free of charge. Nowhere can you find under one roof, so many diverse modalities of healing performed and facilitated by carefully screened, knowledgeable, and sensitive professionals.
Wellspring is the place where the wisdom of Eastern and Western traditions of healing meet, healing not only the body, but the mind and spirit.
Through yoga, the ancient science of mind control, mindfulness-based stress reduction program, meditation, relaxation and visualization, and physical exercises, participants learn how to breathe and relax again and allow the body to perform the most natural task - self healing. Therapeutic touch and reiki balance your inner subtle energies.
Wellspring is a place of psychotherapy. From Art Therapy, and Writing For The Health of It, to Drumming and Singing, to the Healing Journey program, you learn how to express and release your negative feelings, and let go of past grief, painful memories and fears that can sabotage your road to recovery.
Wellspring has educational programs, too. Relevant lectures on topics such as how to improve your health, sleep, the effects of cancer on your relationship and sex, nutrition, how to cope with your work environment and finances, to how to look good so that you feel good, or how to cope when you are too young to cope, you and your family gain knowledge as well as feelings of hope and optimism that you are not alone and you can be well again.
In time, Wellspring becomes your life coach and it never lets you down. Even when the worst comes, they are there for your family and friends. The support never stops, because the foundation on which this place was built is called love. Love, this most misused and misunderstood word in the world, in Wellspring means only one thing - unconditional, all embracing, no-questions-asked love that shines beyond its fancy walls.
Thank you, Wellspring.
