Art Therapy session: Motivating Intention Stick

Description:

Each participant will make an Intention Stick, something tangible to refer to for inspiration, clarity, and motivation. This process is an opportunity to become more mindful and attentive to our needs and ways we would like to live.

Each participant decorating their Intention Stick in their own individual style, colours and patterns.

Requirements/materials:

Pre-session: take a walk outside to collect a stick or small tree branch or cardboard tube. Instructions will be supplied.

Other materials needed: Scissors, yarn, string, twine, thinly torn fabric, ribbon, buttons, beads, or similar from your stash. Paper and Pen for note taking. Needle & thread are optional.

This support group offers understanding and education to women at all stages of Metastatic Breast Cancer.

In this group you will have an opportunity to meet others who are travelling a similar life path and to share your experiences. This group offers women a chance to connect with others, learn coping strategies and gather information with women that understand the challenges you and your family face living with a diagnosis of Metastatic Breast Cancer.

We discuss how we can best support you through this journey.  The sessions are a safe space to share, learn and help each other get through this hurdle. The sessions are run by our Breast Care Nurse Consultant Jamie Kelly and we are often joined by a guest speaker to offer their expertise on a particular breast cancer topic or health related topic.
