Get help Group Activities Meditation About our group classes Meditation can help people cope better with the challenges of living with cancer and even help you to discover ways to thrive through and beyond your cancer experience. Join one of Bloomhill’s meditation classes and learn a simple approach that will help you cope with treatment and reclaim your life. Mindfulness meditation can assist with specific cancer-related issues. Studies have shown that meditation can help with pain and may lessen the number of pain medications needed to control pain. Another study found that meditation decreased the levels of stress hormones in people with breast and prostate cancer and those effects were still present a year later. Difficulty with sleep is a common problem for people living with cancer, meditation is associated with less insomnia and improved quality of sleep, and least one study has found meditation can improve cognitive functioning for people with cancer who experience ‘chemobrain.’ Bloomhill holds three meditation sessions each week and each is run by different teachers, so try each session to find your style.
