Workshops for Well-Being

These unique workshops provide an important avenue for achieving well-being and improved quality of life.

Art for the Soul Program – Hoag’s Art for the Soul Program is a series of classes/workshops that use different approaches to art to evoke relaxation, a space for creativity and time to spend with others in the cancer community.

Caregiver Support – Caregivers are the pillar of strength that an individual going through cancer leans upon. These individuals often place most or all of their attention on their loved one going through treatment, and very little on themselves. Attached is a flyer of resources available to the caregiver, offering ways to reconnect and take time to get the support needed through the cancer journey.

Grief Recovery Series – Join us for an 8 week series that provides a safe environment for you to look at your old beliefs about dealing with loss, which losses have affected your life and take actions that will lead you to complete unresolved emotions that may still be causing you pain.

HealthRHYTHMS Drum Circle – Join us to try a new alternative therapy for reducing stress and strengthening your immune system.

Lymphedema Workshop – An educational workshop provided by Lymphedema specialist Leslie Craner.

Spirituality Series – Join us for conversation and creative expression to mindfully explore the hidden wholeness of our souls. Topics include: solitude, the power of story, the gift of emptiness, and hospitality. The series is open to patients, families, caregivers and staff.
