Mindfulness Based Stress-Reduction
Mindfulness Based Stress-Reduction (MBSR) is an 8-week program that supports participants to learn about and build a practice of mindfulness and meditation.
The program is both educational and experiential, incorporating multiple forms of meditation and mindful movement. MBSR was developed at the University of Massachusetts by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn and has since been studied and found to be an effective intervention for many people, including those with cancer.
For many people, the transition after cancer treatment is integral to their healing and recovery. While treatment may be completed there are often questions and uncertainties about how to move forward and adapt to the change that has occurred.
InspireHealth’s signature LIFE Program provides patients with the essential foundations of health and well-being during cancer. Patients with all cancers; newly diagnosed, in treatment, or post-treatment and their support people are welcome to join.
This group is intended to provide a space where carriers can meet to connect, supported by trained counsellors and learn more about topics of interest related to the BRCA genes from experts in the field.
