Expressive Art Series: Growing Our Strength (Feb – April 2022)
Saturdays, 11:30 am-1:00pm (see below for dates & registration links)
Growing Our Strength is an 8-week journey using guided mini-meditations and thoughtful art making to help us look at ourselves in new, unexpected ways. The discovery of cancer, and the ensuing processes of living daily with its effects, can leave one feeling depleted, mentally, emotionally, and physically. This group, which can be taken as a complete 8-week course, or on a drop-in basis, will creatively investigate areas where we can nurture and regain our mental and emotional strength, areas such as resilience, compassion, patience, and hope.
