Journey Through Cancer & Seven Levels of Healing

Integrative oncologist Jeremy Geffen, MD, FACP offers two upcoming events for people living with cancer, their loved ones and friends, and health professionals. These are:
April 25-27, 2008: Weekend Workshop. Naropa University, Boulder, CO

June 5-8, 2008: Four Day Retreat SpiritPath at Unity Village Unity Village, MO Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The journey through cancer is a life-transforming experience that can challenge the mind, heart, and spirit of patients and family members as deeply as it challenges the physical body. Patients and health professionals must also grapple with a dizzying array of conventional as well as nonconventional treatment options that are ever-changing, and often openly in conflict.

In light of this, what is the most conscious, empowered, and comprehensive response to a diagnosis of cancer? How can one navigate the journey guided by knowledge, wisdom, and understanding, rather than fear? And how can we honor and care for the whole person -- physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually -- along the way?

These events will address these questions, and more. Dr. Geffen will skillfully lead participants through seven critical areas of inquiry and exploration universally encountered on the journey through cancer -- The Seven Levels of HealingĀ® -- and demonstrate how they can powerfully transform every aspect of the journey.

This offering is a workshop for people living with cancer, for their loved ones and friends and for healthcare professionals. The journey through cancer is a life-transforming experience that often challenges the mind, heart and spirit as deeply-if not more deeply-than it challenges the physical body. Patients, family members and health professionals must grapple with a dizzying array of conventional as well as nonconventional treatment options, while also searching for meaningful ways of embracing the mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions of healing. In this context, what is the most conscious, empowered and comprehensive response to a diagnosis of cancer? And how can this be accomplished in the context of modern medicine and modern life? In this weekend workshop, Dr. Geffen will address these questions and more, skillfully guiding participants through the seven critical areas of inquiry and exploration encountered by those on the journey through cancer, and showing how all aspects can be transformed.
