Healing Through Music and Drumming

When music and support from others are used in harmony many sacred healing moments can take place. This group uses music to build connections with ourselves, others, and with life, giving opportunity for expression, laughter and release. A positive experience is based on your love of music and being open to trying something new rather than any kind of musical skill or background. Instruments are provided. Group meets once per month at various times. Fee: $10.

Life After Treatment Support Group

Completing treatment is a major milestone and for many, it means that it’s time to resume regular activities and go back to the lives they had before cancer.  However, we know this can lead to unique stressors and anxiety about a wide range of psychological issues. The purpose of this group is to provide counseling and education on practical issues surrounding cancer survivorship.  Topics will include stress management, sleeping, dating, relationships, coping with body image, and finding deeper meaning after receiving and surviving a cancer diagnosis.  Free for cancer patients.

4th Wednesday of each month, 3:30-5:00pm in the Shane Room, lower level of Tebo Family Medical Pavilion.

Advance registration required.  Please contact Mark Babcock, LCSW at 303-447-0558
