*** Please make sure this class is scheduled before purchasing it.
An 8-week live online mindfulness program is especially designed for those going through a serious illness. Each session is 60 mins on Zoom.
This 8-week mindfulness program allows us to take a pause to simply be; to connect with ourselves and life as a whole; to explore, with kindness and care, the landscape of the mind, body and heart; to give ourselves the opportunity to settle, relax, rest into stillness and learn to approach each moment with greater ease.
Each session will start with a warm welcome, followed by a talk and practice. We will explore different mindfulness practices, talk, reflect, and journal about how the practice and session were experienced, and what we noticed. There will be time for questions and answers.
The sessions are suitable for beginners as well as for those with some mindfulness or meditation experience. Please note, Mindfulness meditation, education, training and practices are not substitutes for medical or mental health treatment. Participants who are working with a health professional are encouraged to consult with them about the advisability of incorporating mindfulness practices before class as well as appropriate modifications relevant to their unique circumstances. Participants are also encouraged to reach out privately to the teacher with any questions.
This program is limited to 6 participants. This program is offered at the Cancer Wellness Center (Northborrk, IL).
