Cultivating Spiritual Well-Being During Cancer
This is a committed support group that meets each Wednesday for 8 weeks.
*The group will not meet on August 15*
A cancer diagnosis can trigger questions about values, identity and faith. We may find ourselves seeking solace, a greater sense of purpose, or a path for deepening (or finding) our sense of the sacred. Developing spiritual well-being increases coping, acceptance, and spiritual awareness. This program explores spiritual themes that can be found universally across cultures and spiritual traditions such as surrender and forgiveness, the power of ritual, meditation and prayer, hope and faith, healing verses curing, and community and connection to begin an individualized personal vision for enhancing spiritual well-being. Each week, a presentation on a specific theme will be provided followed by an experiential exercise and facilitated discussion. Participants will be encouraged to keep a journal.
More About Wellness House
Wellness House is a not-for-profit organization that exists to provide programs and support for people living with cancer. The organization serves more than 1,600 people every year. The idea for the house began with three women, two who had survived cancer, who wanted to help others with the struggles associated with the illness. Before long, the group grew to 20 people who formed a planning committee to raise money for the project. The current facility was made possible through donations and grants. All programs and services are provided free of charge.
