Get help Group Activities Mindfulness Based Cancer Recovery Program About the program The Mindfulness-based Cancer Recovery Program is an 8-week program that provides information and practical application of meditative practices designed to help you develop a particular form of present moment awareness, known as mindfulness. The program is specifically designed for people living with cancer and their carers and provides participants ‘hands-on’ practice sessions, information and discussion. Over time with regular practice, implementing mindfulness practices into daily life can lead to positive influences on resilience, selfregulation and well-being (Siegel, 2007). Studies on this program have shown benefits to reducing stress symptoms and mood disturbances with participants reporting reduction of tensions, depression, anger and concentration problems. (Speca, Carlson, et al., 2000) The 8-week program commences 19th July including a half-day Saturday retreat on 28th August.
