The Mindful Grieving & Movement Series

When: Weekly from April 4th- May 9th 7:30-9:00 CST/ 8:30-10:00 EST

Description: The Mindful Grieving & Movement Program is a closed, 6-week group that offers a safe, accepting space for people going through cancer-specific loss to express their grief and have their experience witnessed by others in a facilitated environment. This program is unique in its body-centered approach to grief work, and offers both tools to manage grief and space to feel and process it while being seen and heard by others who have had similar experiences. The group includes meditation, journaling, group sharing and gentle yoga. Each group meets for 90 minutes.

Some of the themes that are explored include presence and body awareness, unconditional love and acceptance, how grief can serve as a teacher in our lives, and the evolution of our identity when going through a loss. This program is ideal for people looking to connect with others, connect to their bodies, and connect to themselves in a compassionate and engaging way. No previous yoga experience is necessary.

*This group welcomes survivors, previvors, caregivers, patients, healthcare workers, NPO workers, and loved ones. 

If you would like to participate, please register here. Space is limited to eight participants.

Please make your payment here. $125 per person for 6 sessions. *Sliding scale available upon request.*
