Stage5Life: Difficult Conversations
11:00am
Talking about cancer is difficult whether you have it, or someone you care about has it. When we don’t know what to say, we say nothing rather than risk saying the wrong thing. Sometimes the simple question, “How are you?” can leave someone speechless. This class is a practical approach to talking about cancer. We’ll talk about words that help and approaches that are supportive and sensitive. This workshop supports people who have, or had cancer and their friends, family, and allies.

Wednesday April 21st
Stage5Life: Change, & Transition
11:00am 
A cancer diagnosis is uninvited, forced, change. This change requires letting go of beliefs and assumptions about yourself and others as well as beliefs and assumptions about the future. Transition is the internal, emotional, and psychological process that accompanies change. We’ll talk about how we can use the transition process when faced with a cancer diagnosis, to lessen anguish, reorient and redefine. This workshop supports people who have, or had cancer and their friends, family, and allies.

Thursday April 22nd
Stage5Life: Motion & Meaning
11:00am
The emotional journey of cancer continues even after treatment ends. But how do you move forward? Can you come to peace with any or all of the elements of the experience? We’ll talk about unfinished business and residual fear. We’ll also touch on guilt and regret and what to do when the world wants you to celebrate and you just can’t. This workshop supports people who have, or had cancer and their friends, family, and allies.
