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. This is a structured course with additional home practice given after each class.

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 this free course. Just your open mind and commitment to participation and home practice between classes.
