Enjoy a walk through nature from the comfort of home, taking in thoughts of fresh air, leafy surroundings and beautiful peaceful spaces.
It’s important to take time with our thoughts and give ourselves permission to daydream. Relax and reflect through daydreaming, at any time of day, from your comfortable place.
Developing mindfulness using our breath (or our hands) as our focus of attention. This simple (though not so easy!) discipline brings us back to the present moment.
The Body Scan meditation is a foundational practice of Mindfulness, training our capacity to pay attention, and to become aware of what is happening in our minds. We do this by slowly focusing on different areas of the body and allowing body sensations to be felt and experienced as they are, bringing an attitude of kindness to the experience.
We know a diagnosis of secondary breast cancer can mean adjusting to difficult changes in your life, and sometimes it can help to talk with other people in a similar situation. Being part of a meet-up group can give you the chance to do just that, in a relaxed and supportive environment.
When: Typically, the last Monday of every month (you can attend as many or as few meetings as you like)
Where: Wellbeing Studio on Wellbeing at St Columba’s Hospice Care (15 Boswall Road, Edinburgh, EH5 3RW)
Who: Around 6-12 people who are also living with secondary breast cancer. An experienced counsellor will be there to welcome you and facilitate the meetings
What: A chance to chat about whatever’s on your mind with others who understand. Every three months you’ll also hear from an expert speaker on topics such as relationships and communication, side effects, fatigue and clinical trials. Refreshments are provided.
