Wellness Within; cancer support services

(Wellness Within is a healing oasis for patients, survivors, caregivers, and families affected by the trauma, stress and anxiety brought on by cancer. Located in downtown Roseville, CA, Wellness Within offers a warm and inviting space to let go and learn how to manage your stressors.)

What is wholehearted living? Author Brene Brown has identified 10 guideposts that help us to open our hearts and let our big, juicy, life back in. Taken together, these guideposts offer a set of prompts that allow us to actively cultivate these qualities in our lives. In an exciting series of art therapy workshops, we’ll explore each of Brene Brown’s 10 guideposts to wholehearted living* through art journaling, printing, collaging, painting and more. We’ll share with each other and create practices that incorporate these guideposts in easy and practical ways. This month we’ll be exploring Guidepost #7: “Cultivating Play and Rest.”
