In this class, participants use movement, expression, imagery, and creativity to facilitate their own healing. Re-awakening the body to action enhances participants' confidence and freedom, while rehabilitative exercise improves function, mobility, and strength. By giving participants the opportunity to tell their story, listen with care, dance their life experience, and mobilize their spirit to deal with pain and loss, the class profoundly transforms an individual's course with illness. No dance or movement background is required.
The classes are offered free of charge to anyone living with cancer (not limited to UCSF patients), as well as their caregivers. They are co-sponsored by the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine and the UCSF Ida & Joseph Friend Cancer Resource Center.
All classes are held at the UCSF Osher Center for Integrative Medicine 1545 Divisadero St., 5th Floor. To register for any of these classes, please call the Cancer Resource Center at 415-885-3693 or visit http://www.osher.ucsf.edu/classes-and-lectures/living-with-cancer/
