Responding to the challenges of cancer


    By John Graves
    Special to The PREVIEW

    On Sunday, April 14, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service topic will be ”A Multi-Dimensional Approach to Preventing and Healing from Cancer,” presented by Patsy Lindblad, MBA, CCHT.

    Lindblad points out that, “From the very moment one hears the words ‘You have cancer,’ life is thrown into crisis.  Panic and uncertainty run rampant.  However, how one responds to the challenges of cancer can mean the difference between well-being and suffering, and between life and death.”

    She will address some interesting underlying emotional triggers of cancer and provide some simple approaches for improving the quality of information that flows between the mind and body to positively influence the course and meaning of this (or any other ) major illness.

    A cancer survivor herself, and a Pagosa resident, Lindblad is a certified clinical hypnotherapist.

    For the months of March and April, the children will be exploring the Seventh Unitarian Principle, honoring the Earth: “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence, of which we are a part.”  Earth Day is April 22.

    The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall, and child care will be provided.  The address is Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza.  Turn east on Greenbriar Drive off of North Pagosa Boulevard by the fire station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign.  All are welcome.
