Hospital Sponsor Cancer Wellness Circles

Living with cancer is an ongoing process, and a sense of belonging can make a big difference. Individuals can now access health and healing, meaning, and connection to life, at no cost — right in their own communities thanks to our hospital sponsors.

Each month, we come together as a welcoming community of support, learning, and healing. Skilled facilitators share new tools and resources to increase personal wellbeing through interactive group discussions, journaling, expressive arts, and much more. Developed as a yearlong wellness program for cancer patients, survivors, and companions, we invite participants to join at any time.

  • Mindfulness in Everyday Life, Treatment, and Beyond
  • Stress Response
  • Reframing Our Thoughts and Beliefs
  • Growing with Emotions
  • Self-Expression as a Form of Healing
  • Self-Care
  • Relationships and Communication
  • Healing Grief, Loss, and Disappointment
  • Gratitude
  • The Healing Power of Nature
  • Self-Compassion, Honoring and Celebrating Our Journeys
  • Healing Our Relationship with Our Bodies
  • Building Resilience
