David is hosting a free-of-charge weekly meditation for people with Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPN), a rare blood cancer which often comes with a slew of difficult-to-manage daily symptoms. The group is also open to carers and close friends.
The sessions will be held at The Sauce in Albert Park each Tuesday at 7pm for one hour, as well as live at the ANZ MPN Community Facebook page for those who cannot attend in person or reside outside of Melbourne.
Beginning with a general discussion, the meditation includes a body scan with a deep dive down to the DNA, focusing on mindfulness, heart energy and inner healing.
Research has shown that meditation reduces stress and anxiety by speeding up cortisol recovery as well as lowering inflammation by down-regulating associated genes; thus allowing the body to more readily do what it is naturally designed to do. Heal and thrive. Combined with the many other benefits, regular meditation practice can be very helpful when challenged with a chronic condition such as an MPN.
