Chinese calligraphy symbols, one denoting danger and the other denoting hidden opportunity, together “spell” crisis/dangerous moment/perilous situation.

When there is crisis there is opportunity to realize the need to start living fully with an awareness of each moment.

Whatever brings you to this moment, Mindfulness Based Cancer Survivorship (MBCS) is your opportunity to change, to grow, and to heal.

CRISIS

Through the crisis of your health challenges, this course offers you the opportunity to embrace each moment of being fully alive in our world.

Jon Kabat-Zinn, who has brought mindfulness principles into Western Medical practice through years of evidence-based research, states that,

“…from the perspective of mindfulness practice, as long as you are breathing there’s more right with you than wrong with you, no matter what the condition of your body and its history and no matter what you are facing in this moment.” 

“We are profoundly indebted to the patients, clients, students, and employees who have shaped our nursing experiences and touched our hearts. We honor the powerful contributions of Thich Nhat Hanh and Jon Kabat-Zinn to the wealth of information that has changed lives around the world through mindfulness meditation and mindful living practices.”

“You are breathing. You are alive. You are changing whether you want to or not…this is your perfect moment. We hope you enjoy this process of self- discovery and healing.”
