This support group is for people at all stages of dealing with a cancer diagnosis. It integrates present-moment awareness, guided meditations, mindful movement, positive psychology, and group support. Explorations are introduced that deepen the participants awareness of the suffering and life changes that come with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer as well as the ways that suffering can be used as a transformative force for nurturing healing, compassion, and joy in life in this moment, just as it is.
Note: It is recommended that participants have some familiarity with mindfulness principles.
