You didn’t do anything to deserve cancer more than any other human being on this earth, though you may find yourself wondering why it chose to grow inside of you… instead of someone else.
There is no shame in having cancer,
just as there is no shame in receiving chemotherapy.
“Why me?” won’t benefit you now. It’s wiser to focus on how to live with-until-without it.
“Everything has changed” is a good place to start because, though we are all vulnerable to intense and alarming conditions, you are the one who has to deal with it. Luckily, you don’t have to like reality to accept it. It’s already there. Your need for chemotherapy is real.
This “course” is designed as a Mindfulness Retreat for anyone who spends time in chemotherapy. Its instructors are a clinical psychologist and mindfulness teacher (Maria Hunt), and an art therapist experiencing her third cancer since surviving childhood leukemia. Emily Camille will be going through it with you.
