Living Mindfully with Cystic Fibrosis

Living Mindfully with Cystic Fibrosis

Living Mindfully with Cystic Fibrosis is a class I designed, using practices derived from MBSR, that is geared more specifically to living with cystic fibrosis. My hope is that this class is beneficial for people living with CF as well as parents and other caregivers of those with CF. We work with both the body and mind and learn to become mindful of sensations, thoughts and emotions as a way to live more skillfully with the changes inherent in living in a body with the specific challenges of CF. We also discuss additional issues of importance such as resilience, self-compassion and loving-kindness. This class is provided with the generous support of CFRI (http://www.cfri.org).
