Bringing both creativity and mindfulness into therapy has proven to be beneficial for many people, including having specific benefits for cancer patients. In addition to having a positive effect on depression, anxiety, and tension, mindfulness and art in therapy can provide the following benefits:

  • Soothe the nervous system to lower anxiety and stress.
  • Integration of emotions, sensations, and cognition
  • Enhancement of self-acceptance, flexibility, and emotional intelligence.
  • Processing material or emotions that are difficult to verbalize
  • Management of stress
  • Stimulation of the brain and body

    In addition to the incorporation of arts and mindfulness, this will also be a support and therapeutic group in which members can share their stories and create meaningful relationships with peers.

caregivers of all ages and condition levels.

Accommodations can be made for most physical limitations.
