  • Based on more than 15 years of program development and clinical application by the author, and the work and experience of mindfulness teachers in other cancer centres around the world
  • Provides specific practices and approaches tailored to support the different phases of a cancer experience – from  diagnosis and treatment to living with uncertainty and managing life with cancer
  • Features five extended stories from people personally affected by cancer who have used mindfulness-based practices to support them in their own experience of illness, life and treatment
