This BWY Teacher Training Module explores the therapeutic and practical application of yoga, mindfulness and self-compassion for those living with cancer.
The course is a training module, but the nature of the subject means that it involves a significant degree of personal as well as professional development, as the tough issues it embraces are confronted. Most of the teachers who have taken this course have found this aspect valuable for teaching generally as well as specifically for those with cancer.
For many people cancer becomes a catalyst for transformation, healing and spiritual growth. The course will consider the personal qualities as well as the professional skills that are needed: caring and compassion, most obviously, but also the clarity and detachment that enable us to care and to be compassionate without becoming over-involved emotionally, or drained energetically.The course will provide insight into the experience of cancer, and provide an approach within which yoga, mindfulness and self-compassion can support the person through the experience of cancer, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
