Mindfulness & Spirituality Workshop Through Art For Breast Cancer Survivors

The Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Program is offering a free four-session creative arts workshop empowering breast cancer survivors to express themselves using art. This therapeutic program offers a safe place to communicate thoughts, feelings, concerns, problems, hopes and dreams. The professional staff guides participants through different exercises and discussions helping to find ways to gain personal insight and develop new coping skills

This Mindfulness & Spirituality Workshop helps participants stay focused and aware of the present moment while exploring the relationship between spirituality, healing and art.

This workshop will be facilitated by Angela M. Papalia, LMSW, Assistant Director for the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program, along with Kimberly Newman, BFA, Communications and Marketing Coordinator for the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program.

The workshop will take place on four consecutive Thursdays—October 27, November 3, November 10 and November 17—from 10 am to 11:30 am.

All four sessions will start with a relaxation/breathing exercise. Then participants will complete several creative projects focusing on mindfulness & spirituality. These projects will help reduce negativity and will be self-soothing resulting in stress reduction.

Participants will need computer access with a camera, microphone, and internet.  Each attendee will receive a package in the mail containing: a printed packet outlining each session; printed sheets needed for activities; the zoom link for the workshop; and art supplies. Some additional everyday items will be needed. The packet will list everything needed for each session.

This workshop is free but registration is required and members must commit to attending the entire four-week-session. Registration ends on October 14.

The support group is sponsored due to generous funding from the Marilyn Lichtman Foundation and New York State.

For information, questions and to register, call Angela M. Papalia, LMSW at (516) 877-4329 or email apapalia@adelphi.edu
