Webinar Description

Presented by Ruth Bachman
Join Triage Cancer for a special webinar on Resilience and the power to not just survive after a cancer diagnosis but to thrive. Experience has taught Ruth that change can serve as a catalyst to sharpen our sense of purpose and our recognition of what is important. How do we discover and enhance our capacity to accept “what is,” embrace it and move forward? Using the metaphor of an hourglass, Ruth will inspire us to recognize our resources for navigating change throughout life: the passage of our sand from one chamber to another resulting in a new arrangement. When change happens, we have a choice: to stick our head in the sand and pretend nothing has happened; or to accept the inevitability of change and live life abundantly. How do we discover and enhance our capacity to live life with resilience? Can we find possibilities and potential gains and focus on those? Living life resiliently requires a balance of many things and is far from effortless. Not unlike a garden, cultivating resilience requires intention, patience and effort which allows us to grow.

Webinar Description

The holiday hustle and bustle can be overwhelming and exhausting for any one. As a cancer survivor currently in treatment or still managing long term effects, or a caregiver for someone coping with cancer, this time of year amps up the complexity of self care. Social gatherings, endless to do lists, never-ending joy and the expectation to do it all are often in stark contrast to the reality of treatment schedules, test results and the uncertainty of tomorrow. During this webinar, take a break with us and some time to reflect on your priorities for the holiday season, the values that guide you through this time and the opportunities that provide the most fulfillment and true joy. Being mindful of how you prepare for a busy social calendar or protect yourself from particularly tender moments may help you not only find your way through the frenzy, but care for yourself along the way.
