Mindfulness is an awareness of the moment which gives you a sense of control and can help you manage symptoms such as pain, fatigue and sleep disturbance.

We hold a six-week course on mindfulness and host fortnightly refresher meetings for all those who have completed the course. 

The next course dates are to be confirmed.

To register your interest, please contact Hilary on (04) 260 4561 or hilarya@cancersoc.org.nz
