“Hope is learning to live from your imagination and not your history.”
Often, a cancer experience and treatment can bring with it a sense of hopelessness and even depression. We can lose our ability to “see” into the future, or imagine a life beyond just dealing with cancer. We know we can’t return to normal, yet when it comes to imagining a “new normal”, we can feel disempowered and uninspired. Caught up in catastrophising about the future, we can end up trapped in our own heads as we overthink all the possibilities…and impossibilities.
We may feel we want to live our best lives either with or after cancer, but we can often feel traumatised, anxious and uninspired.
I’m currently piloting a new survivorship workshop for cancer survivors and carers based on my cancer coaching principles, my supportive care facilitation experience and my journey as a cancer survivor. In this exciting Saturday program, we’ll support and connect with one another in a safe environment where we can reignite our creative imagination, and dare to begin to create a “new normal”.
Through group discussions, we’ll explore some of the common challenges and opportunities faced in a cancer journey, and learn the power of sharing our own story. We’ll talk about managing thoughts, emotions, anxiety and mental flatness, and brainstorm strategies for stimulating and engaging the body, mind and soul.
Through fun, interactive activities, we’ll wake up your creativity and imagination and connect you back with your dreams and hopes for the future.
You’ll meet others who’ve walked a similar path, and be supported to explore some of those feelings and thoughts unique to the experience of someone journeying through cancer.
And most importantly, you’ll learn you’re not alone.
