Meditation and Stress Busters for Cancer Survivors
Every Monday, from 11 to 11:30 a.m. (HOLIDAYS EXCLUDED)
Come learn meditation techniques with Deb Christensen, Cancer Care Coordinator and Certified Yoga instructor.There are a variety of meditation and stress reducing techniques available to aid in healing the mind, body and spirit. Take a break and join us as we explore some of these techniques directed toward reducing the effects of a cancer diagnosis and subsequent treatments.
The techniques are simple and can be done sitting in a chair or lying on the floor. Comfortable clothing and a bottle of water are suggested. We will open class with a positive message and then engage in the meditation. Support group will follow on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month from 12-1 p.m.
In the last 20 years, meditation has been studied in clinical trials as a way of reducing stress on both the mind and body. Research shows that meditation can help reduce anxiety, stress, blood pressure, chronic pain, and insomnia.
Although meditation can be self-guided, the power of group meditation provides additional benefits. In the words of Jewel, a grateful participant: “There is something really nice about the group energy….it just charges your battery.”
