Free Meditation Sessions for Cancer Patients, Survivors, and Caregivers

Stress is a very real part of a cancer diagnosis, for the patient as well as for their caregiver. Shore Medical Center, the office of Cancer Education and Early Detection and the Cape Atlantic Coalition for Health want to help you deal with that stress by offering free meditation classes via Zoom for cancer patients, survivors and caretakers. 

The benefits of mediation are many and include reducing stress and improving the ability to bounce back from challenges. An additional benefit is being able to gather within a community of other cancer patients, survivors and caretakers, working through similar stressors and emotions. The classes are led by instructors trained to support you in learning to meditate, whether you are just trying it for the first time or if you are seasoned in meditational practices.  

Each session is led by a certified meditation instructor. Berni Kozlowski or Jenn Taylor will lead the meditational sessions and they are designed as a tool to reverse the very real and devastating effect of stress, helping people on their cancer journey to restore and sustain balance in their life. That help includes those having trouble getting over the guilt of just taking a rest. 

The free meditation sessions are approximately 20 minutes with an additional 10 minutes for questions and answers, discussion or just to speak with the instructors. 

The sessions for January are

  • Tuesdays: 4-4:20 p.m. and 8-8:20 p.m.
  • Wednesdays: 10-10:20 a.m.,
  • Thursdays: 8-8:20 a.m. and 7-7:20 p.m.
