A New Song to Sing: Breast Cancer as Journey of Spirit
Time & Location
About the Event
Join Facilitator Jeannie Bowman for a free information session and taste of what the New Song to Sing journey will hold. She will answer questions and share insights from previous groups.
The current pandemic has only increased the potential isolation that cancer survivors feel. Since “in person” gatherings which often lend support and insight are challenging, survivor and spiritual director Jeannie Bowman is offering an opportunity for women to gather via a Zoom group for 7 sessions using the acclaimed workbook “A New Song to Sing: Breast Cancer as Journey of Spirit” by Rev. Linda C. Loving. Women with cancer – whether long time survivors or recently diagnosed – are invited to register for the group; women around the country have found wisdom, encouragement, and “a new song to sing” by sharing together in the workbook exercises to:
- claim their own truth and seek spiritual depth
- share their own stories, concerns, resources, and wisdom.
Women with all types of cancer may find this helpful! And all faith traditions/seekers will feel at home in the friendship created by this shared experience.
