This course – for those who have or have had cancer, and for carers- will provide a gentle but comprehensive training in the practice of mindfulness, using meditation, body awareness and simple movement. The approach is experiential, with lots of practice, but also with opportunities to discuss your experience and learn from the teacher and other participants. We will also explore how this practice can be taken into day-to-day life, where it is most needed.
Participants are asked to practise at home for up to 1 hour per day, five days per week.
To support participants after the course ends, we run a Mindfulness Maintenance class monthly at Paul’s Cancer Support Centre. There are also opportunities in London for further classes or practice, and these will be discussed in the last session
