I'm excited to share that the Wellness Community of Arizona has designated me as the fourth and final speaker in their Spirit of Science Lecture Series. The last speaker in the series was Chris Carmichael, who helped the seven-time Tour de France winner recover from advanced testicular cancer is the author of seven books, including The New York Times bestseller, “Chris Carmichael’s Food for Fitness.”
My lecture/interactive presentation will emphasize the importance of awareness and stability of mind/heart through the harrowing experience of oncology care and life post treatment. I'll expand on many of the creative approaches both patients and their caregivers can employ moment-to-moment in their journey. These ideas were described on Jeannine Walston's Embodiworks.org site last year here.
Cancer invites/demands that we respond. So much of rehabilitation in cancer care is about striving, winning, overcoming and fight the war on cancer. These are good and honorable responses, but too little value and opportunity is given the other equally valuable response….that is surrender, acceptance and presence. Herein lies the paradox of "both" …neither the right answer, but each holding the transformative healing potential the diagnosis of cancer brings forward in those with the diagnosis and their communities.
Please forward and share this notice with those you think might benefit from a pleasant evening on Thursday, February 23rd at The Wellness Community of Arizona, 6-8 pm. See the contact info to the right to RSVP as seating is limited. For those that can't attend that evening, the program is being videotaped and will be posted on the The Wellness Community site in the future. I'll post details.
