Mindfulness for Cancer: Free 8-week Course in the Community

November 13 @ 1:45 PM - December 12 @ 5:15 PM

Are you living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis?

You may be living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis for many years or have just reached the end of hospital-based treatments. When all the appointments, treatments, and check-ups stop, and support mechanisms are withdrawn, it can feel like a lonely and isolating time. Particularly, when others expect ‘life to go back to normal’ now that the ‘treatment is over’ and you are ‘cured’. Our experienced teachers of this specialised 8-week Mindfulness for Cancer course have heard these stereotypical phrases many times. Partners, carers, and family members impacted by a cancer diagnosis can also benefit from this course.

Connecting with others, who are not family and friends, provides a safe and supportive space to explore the impact emotionally, physically and cognitively (thoughts). Mindfulness allows us to do this in a non-invasive way: this is not counselling; this is a skills-based course.

This course is two-and-a-half-hour sessions, once a week, for 8 weeks. There will also be 30 minutes of home practice over these 56 days. However, the rewards can be life-changing.

NCIM are able to offer this course for free thanks to a Cost of Living Grant that we were awarded. The grant stipulates that we can work with communities living within a BS postcode, which covers Bristol City, North Somerset (including Weston-Super-Mare, Axbridge, Banwell, Cheddar, Clevedon, Wedmore, Winscombe), and South Gloucestershire. If you feel you do not meet these criteria, please do register your interest nonetheless. Two weeks prior to the start of the course any remaining places may be allocated to those who do not meet the criteria. We would much rather see places occupied than going to waste!
