Mount Auburn Hospital will start a program for people diagnosed with cancer which will focus on the mind as well as the body. 

The following release was sent out by Mount Auburn Hospital:

Cancer diagnosis brings with it a world of testing and treatments, as well as heavy emotional and physical demands. At times, these elements can seem overwhelming, but they don’t have to be. Mount Auburn Hospital recognizes these difficulties and has developed its Mind/Body Medicine Program to help patients maintain good mental and emotional health through their treatment and recovery.

This fall, the hospital is pleased to present the Living with Cancer workshop, an eight-week group focused on reducing stress and promoting resilience. Participants will be introduced to relaxation techniques, meditation, spirituality, yoga, Tai chi, and nutrition. Unlike most other therapies, these techniques can be learned and practiced independently to foster the mind-body connection and ease the process.

The workshop will be held every Tuesday for 8 weeks from 3:30-5 p.m. starting on Nov. 3, 2015. Sessions will be at Mount Auburn Hospital, 330 Mount Auburn St. in Cambridge.

This course is complementary to patients. To enroll, contact Meredith Hobson, LICSW at 617-499-5665 x 4664.
