Meditation has been shown to reduce anxiety, pain, sleep disturbance, high blood pressure, muscle tension, and more. We will explore different guided meditation techniques, including guided imagery, progressive relaxation, mindfulness meditation, and more, with the goal of each participant discovering which meditation technique(s) work for him/her.

Qigong is a traditional Chinese medicine mind-body-spirit discipline of gentle exercise with focus on flow of breath, energy/qi, and fluids: lymph/blood. Breathing and posture are seen as critical to achieving/maintaining flow through the meridians, or energy channels of the body. Extensive studies have been done on the benefits of qigong, including lowering blood pressure, emotional frustration, mental stress, anxiety, pain, and sleep disturbances.

Keeping a Gratitude Journal has been shown to alleviate depression, and as we head into the holiday season, what better time to express our gratitude.

ROAR Survivorship: Reclaiming Ourselves After Recovery (from cancer) is a community dedicated to
providing those affected by cancer with the support, tools, and confidence they need to build a life they love as they navigate their new normal, whether they be survivors, metavivors, caregivers, widow(er)s, or family members
