CWC's Mid-Month Mindfulness 

CWC is partnering with Laura Gavigan, Founder of Mindful Matters, to offer several sessions of "Mid-Month Mindfulness" skills. Laura uses a blended model of teaching, counseling and coaching integrating mindful meditation skills to help people understand and manage stress. Register for one or all! For patients and support partners (family, friends, and caregivers of all stripes).

Mindful means being aware of what is happening in the present moment, without judgment. It is a way of paying attention that is calm, deliberate, and accepting. For cancer patients and their caregivers, it helps return the focus to the present moment and steers them away from the worry of the unknowns that cancer brings. Mindfulness is a skill that can be learned and practiced and is a powerful tool for navigating through tough times. It can be helpful to cancer patients in a number of ways, including:

  • Reducing stress and anxiety
  • Improving sleep
  • Reducing pain
  • Improving quality of life
  • Increased self-awareness
  • Increased resilience
