Navigating Cancer Series with Carole O'Toole, Patient NavigatorTopic: Nurturing Your Soul

This session, the third in our Navigating Cancer series, will look at the great spiritual traditions (both faith and non-faith based) that contribute to wellness and healing with session leaders Suzie Kline Massey and Carole O’Toole. Through an interactive dialogue, participants will explore the points of commonality across these traditions and examine their own engagement and history with these practices, making their own linkages for honoring these points of connection in their personal healing.

Participants will:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of the themes and practices of wellbeing and wellness across faith and non-faith traditions, and
  • Have an opportunity to set their personal intention of the use of these practices - whether new or reconnecting - in pursuit of their own well-being and health in the face of cancer

The Navigating Cancer series consists of three individual sessions, which participants may attend in any order.
