Meditation has been used for centuries as a means of achieving healthy thought management through the control of thoughts and emotions. Meditation practices can help reduce stress, improve one’s capacity to cope and to feel better both emotionally and physically. In this group program, cancer patients and their caregivers will learn mindfulness meditation exercises, with each session providing a focus on a different type or aspect of meditation. Body-Mind Meditation is an introductory course, especially suited to members who are either new to meditation or those who cannot commit to multiple sessions with home practice,
Those wishing to deepen their meditation skills and adopt meditation practice into their daily life, should consider registering for Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. Body Mind Meditation is a drop in program. Please check in with the front desk when you arrive for your program.
Drop-In Program: This program requires no ongoing commitment and is especially helpful for those who are not feeling well, are in treatment or are coping with symptoms that make commitment difficult.
