Let’s Go Beyond the “New Normal!”
In 2016, there are 2 weekly offerings for Survivors of Cancer with Kelly Inselmann!
Yoga and Talk® 8 week Therapy Group for Survivors of Cancer (February-April 2016)
Let’s go Beyond the “New Normal!”
New Yoga and Talk Therapy Group for Survivors of Cancer will meet for an 8 week series beginning in February 2016.
Each group begins with 45 minutes of kundalini yoga, relaxation, and meditation practice followed by an hour of group therapy.
Many survivors wish they had a handbook for how to deal with fear of recurrence, self blame, stress, anxiety and depression. Relationships have usually been impacted and people often struggle with loss of identity or roles at work and home. Coming to terms with physical limitations and pain can be an ongoing challenge.
Let the group help you identify what’s next in your emotional and physical recovery, even as we gasp in wonder at what we’ve been able to overcome physically and mentally. There are many paradoxes and complications in modern day survivorship and they are worth exploring!
The group acts as a mirror, a sounding board for feelings and ideas, a laboratory for personal growth, and a sanctuary for connection and healing.
Start Date: February 9, 2016-April 13, 2016

Place: Integrative Psychotherapies, 1310 South First St., Ste.200 Austin, TX 78704
Who? This could be a good fit for you if you are interested in learning tools from yoga and meditation and group therapy to help you process your experience. You should be in a place in treatment or after treatment where you feel like you can commit for the 8 weeks. You do not have to feel great to show up. You can come as you are – that’s what this is about. You may choose to rest during parts of the yoga – that’s ok. Like in yoga class, you will be encouraged to listen deeply to what you need.
Ask me any questions – I’m happy to explain more about how the discussion works and how I can keep it feeling safe and focused on the feelings – not just story details:)
