Join experienced facilitator Cathy Brown to explore the nine areas of life cancer thrivers may have in common. Built on lived experiences, this interactive program brings to life your unique experience making informed choices to support your wellbeing.
This course is hopeful and opens up discussions on a variety of topics relevant to people facing health issues. As her PhD thesis Kelly Turner examined outliers- people who outlived their prognosis, and analysed the key themes they had in common. While we are careful to avoid false hope, many people diagnosed with cancer find that reading the stories of these cancer thrivers is very helpful.
The nine areas discussed, with room for debate, sharing and dissension, include:
1. Changing your diet – if so, why, and who to consult
2. Taking control of your health – how to source reliable information and make informed decisions
3. Following your intuition – first de-stress, then tune in
4. Using herbs and supplements – is there any evidence? Can this cause harm?
5. Keeping the lines of communication open
6. Managing emotions; increasing positive experiences
7. Embracing social support
8. Deepening your spiritual connection
9. Checking with values and reasons for living well
