St. John’s Medical Center Cancer Care and Infusion Services will offer Mind Body Skills sessions beginning on September 24. Classes take place once a month for three months and are open to cancer patients, survivors, and family members.
“Learning skills and strategies to balance life’s stresses is essential to living well,” said Dondi Rettig, BSN, MBA, director of oncology at St. John’s.
Maureen Molinari, MS, RD, LD, CDE, will facilitate three sessions to introduce participants to skills that may provide relief during times of stress. Meditation, breath work, guided imagery, journal writing, and other techniques will be explored. Participants will have an opportunity to practice these mind body skills in a safe and comfortable environment. Molinari has a master’s degree in Mind Body Medicine.
Sessions will be held on three Thursdays: September 24, October 22, and November 12, from 3:00 to 5:00 pm in the St. John’s Medical Center Boardroom. Enrollment is limited to 15 people, and pre-registration is required. Call 307-739-6195.
