Mindfulness can be a powerful tool to manage the stress experienced while living with cancer and going through life after cancer. To assist individuals with cancer and their caregivers in developing mindfulness tools, the Duke Cancer Patient Support Program is offering free virtual session every second and fourth Wednesday from 12:45 to 1:30 pm that teach mind and body approaches to coping with cancer.
These mindfulness sessions allow participants to practice present moment awareness by focusing on one of seven essential attitudes for mindfulness practice:
- Beginner’s Mind
- Letting Go.
Through the focus on the breath and the present moment, our patients and their caregivers will learn to discover and ways to find within themselves the ability to respond, rather than react, to life’s stressors.
Registration is required. To register, please email Tracy.Berger@duke.edu or call 919-681-6835.
This program is funded by the Duke Raleigh Hospital Guild.
