The program instructor, Liz Maillett, is a retired attorney who received her training in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction at the University Of Mass Medical School. Mindfulness can be cultivated through mindfulness meditation, a systematic method of focusing your attention. Above all, mindfulness practice involves accepting whatever arises in your awareness at each moment. It involves being kind and forgiving toward yourself. For many people, such as people impacted by cancer, the practice of mindfulness meditation (mindfulness based stress-reduction) can be a useful tool in improving one’s quality of life - both during the cancer experience and in their lives after cancer. Pre-register Surviving Cancer after Surviving Cancer - Wednesday April 30 6-7 pm We are pleased to have Kevin L. Murphy author of Surviving Cancer after Surviving Cancer with us for this evening presentation. Kevin will talk about his experience, as a husband/caregiver, moving through diagnosis, treatment and post-cancer treatment life with his wife. He will present his unique perspective on the emotional impact of cancer coming into the life of an individual and couple. He is a former truck driver, teacher and firefighter, who, since 1981, has been a courtroom lawyer. He now resides in Kentucky and is the founder of The Phyllis Foundation, a non-profit focusing on getting the word out about the emotional impact of cancer on the lives of individuals and couples. Pre-Register Restorative Yoga – Saturday April 13 1-2:30 pm What is Restorative Yoga? The antidote to stress is relaxation. To relax is to rest deeply. Relaxation is a state in which there is no movement, no effort and the brain is quiet. Restorative yoga is an active relaxation. By supporting the body with props, we alternately stimulate and relax the body to move towards balance. Restorative yoga can calm the nervous system and improve the quality of sleep. Pre-register. No experience necessary - Wear comfortable clothes - Bring mat if you have one, we will have extra mats. ------------------------------------ONGOING PROGRAMS---------------------------------------------- STRESS MANAGEMENT- Try Yoga or Tai Chi - to increase strength, flexibility and calm the mind.

NEWCOMERS - If you are new to The Cancer Support Community, we recommend that you attend a Newcomers Orientation Meeting.

A cancer survivor typically leads these meetings. Drop in or call ahead (781) 610-1490. PREPARE FOR SURGERY, CHEMO OR RADIATION - Available to those people who will be starting treatment or having surgery. Based on Peggy Huddleston’s program: “Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster,” this program provides physical and emotional preparation for surgery, chemo or radiation. Peggy’s program gives patients tools to use in the days before surgery that empower them to go from feeling very afraid to profoundly peaceful, a state of being medically proven to help people heal faster and move through their treatment in a more relaxed fashion. Individual sessions are offered by CSC-MSS staff members Ann Allegrini, RN and Gail Mitton, WHE. Call (781) 610-1490 for more info.
