Living Mindfully is a Wellness Class for those touched by cancer and other illnesses. Mindfulness invites you to separate yourself from whatever chronic condition you may have and look at yourself as a whole person, one who just happens to be living with pain or cancer. Each four-week session offers tools to navigate the stress of illness including gentle stretches and mindfulness meditation.

We will talk about how the body is a complex system of interaction between your body and your mind. You will learn to use your mind to change your perception of the challenges you face. This class is based on the groundbreaking research of Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn. Space is limited. Registration required.
