Sense the moment.
Ancient wisdom for the present time.
Mindfulness is a skilled shift in perception. It’s the practice of relaxed yet focused and open-hearted awareness. It’s the art of noticing what is happening as it happens. Mindfulness practices let us reclaim life’s minutes. Research studies suggest that regular meditation can help reduce chronic pain, anxiety, issues with sleep, and improve mood in people living with cancer, their caregivers and the bereaved. Our meditation is open to individuals living with cancer their caregivers. As well as individuals whose loved one has died from cancer.
