The diagnosis of cancer, chronic pain or other chronic illness profoundly impacts our lives. It is normal to feel overwhelmed with the challenges associated with illness, including family and relationship issues, feeling sad, angry, helpless, worried about the future and changes in body image and energy levels.
Mindfulness is a specialised skill in mental awareness, attention, and acceptance that is associated with numerous health benefits. Mindfulness practice allows you to develop a deeper understanding of the mind, and a more accepting and compassionate relationship to your internal and external experiences. It involves guided exercises, including meditation and yoga, to help you become aware of automatic patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving, and learn how to respond in a more effective way.
This workshop that is interactive and experiential – questions and discussion are welcome.
