Two-hour class each Thursday, for 8 weeks, commencing 21 October 2021

Life Now Mindfulness is a free stress management program open to people diagnosed with cancer and their carers. This eight week course is facilitated by an experienced instructor and runs for two hours each week.

Mindfulness practices encourage individuals to experience the present moment in a non-judgemental way, to counter the effects of stressors relating to the cancer diagnosis. Research shows that stress management programs may reduce anxiety and improve mood, quality of life, alleviate sleep problems and provide some pain relief.

There is no need for any special skills or prior experience to participate and benefit from these free sessions.

 

Eligibility criteria

Life Now Mindfulness is offered to Western Australians who have been diagnosed with cancer, or who have experienced a recurrence, secondary or progression, in the last five years.

Primary carers are also welcome to attend.

So we can help more people to experience the benefits of mindfulness, participants are invited to attend one Life Now Mindfulness course only.
